The goal: spend less on wardrobe. Solution: thrift shops, recycling clothes, tailoring and stealing from mum’s closet.
I have really gotten into the whole 80s/boyfriend jacket trend. I stole one of mum’s blazers and had it tailored. I removed the shoulder pads and had the sleeves cinched.
I also had an awesome Moschino pencil skirt, it was my absolute favourite and I wore it to work as often as I could. I wore the skirt so often that, after many times at the cleaners, it started fading at the hem. I decided to have the skirt shortened and keep it as a night-out mini.
For the outfit I added a simple tee, tons of mismatched jewelry and high heels (of course). Total Cost of tailoring: $20. Brand new outfit!
Do forgive the big frizzy hair: 1. I live in Texas and big hair is a prerequisite for a night out and 2. it is so humid that as I’m typing this my panties are still soaked.
What I’m Wearing:
Jacket: Vtg. Armani (tailored), T-Shirt: Michael Stars, Skirt: Moschino Chic and Cheap, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Jewelry: Way too many to list.
