Since the beginning of 2016 I didn’t buy any new clothes for myself anymore and the way I think about it right now, I’m pretty sure that I will never do it again!
At first I was only buying thrifted stuff for the girls… Clothes, shoes, toys,… Basically everything they have it either handmade or 2nd hand. More and more I started to realise that it’s so easy to find beautiful clothes and even shoes (new but 2nd hand) for myself too. Whenever I go to the flea-market or to the local thrift store I find something and most of the times it makes me so much more happy than just going to the shop. Not only because it’s way cheaper, but also because I get kind of rewarded when I find something I really like that’s actually in my size.
I hope by doing this that I help the environment a bit. Why produce new clothes when there are so many beautiful pieces available and not being used! I’m not a big fan of over-consuming, when we actually don’t need that many stuff.
Why do I tell you this? Because I love the match between my new Kristy skirt and this thrifted 1euro blouse. Bringing thrifted pieces together with handmade pieces makes me even more happy…
It’s a perfect match: the striped Nosh fabric with the vintage floral print. I never tried stripes for a skirt, but now that I did, this outfit became my favourite one for the summer of 2017! It’s not only beautiful but also super comfy. Again I fell in love with the quality of Nosh fabrics. They’re so soft and I like the idea that I don’t have the iron simple skirts like this.
How do you feel about 2nd hand stuff and clothes? Do you share my point of view?
Small note: I only buy underwear and bathing suits… Maybe I should be honest and mention that… Shall I try to change this in the future?
