Every time I write those few lines explaining where I got the items of displayed outfit from, I feel ridiculous. Not because I’m ashamed, nor because I don’t want to. I honestly just don’t see the need of pointing it out. You all know by now that my clothes originates mainly from thrift/ second hand, mom’s closet or DIY. My belief is that the place where you got your clothes from matters the least when it comes to style and being fashionable. You can look like million dollars in your 1.50 euro dress, the same way another person can look awfully cheap while dressed in expensive labels from head to toe. The other reason I find it unnecessary is that whether I got something from second hand or as a gift or I made it myself – it’s all one of a kind and it’s gonna be tough finding the exact same piece. However, I’ll keep on writing all of that down for those of you who are interested in knowing that info. Still, I needed to get this out because personally, I’d rather just talk about my inspiration behind the outfit, how to wear specific items and incorporate trends into your personal style, adding jewelry, shoes, etc. You know, the creative process that goes on in my head when getting dressed.

So let us finally step to that part of the post. This particular combo was built around the simple white mesh shirt. I’ve had it for years and it always just sat in the back of my wardrobe since the early 2000’s I think (not really sure about that but it’s definitely been a few years). I recently found it while cleaning out my closet and fell for it again. The simple design, a really good type of net (not too big nor too small), and it’s white – the color of the moment for me. Can be worn with just a great bra underneath + a leather west/jacket thrown over, or the way I chose to style it here. It always had that sporty feel to me so of course I had to wear a baseball cap. To avoid the so-called “headed to the gym” look and add a touch of elegance to the outfit, I opted for sandals instead of sneakers and complimented the black&white combo with bright pink lipstick. Also, don’t be afraid to try new things and mix’n’match. Play with different styles, go overboard, wear a tight black skirt with sporty pieces (wink, wink) – that way you’ll see what works best for you and what you feel most comfortable in.

I love refinding old pieces, you combined yours just perfectly! I feel so silly writing labels as well as I always buy most of my stuff from Zara, and I feel like a advertisement for them (for free) lol. Oh well I guess it’s always nice to see where people get their clothes from even if they’re secondhand or refound. I like how you don’t have to be on trend to look great! And you always do :)

I completely agree with you, I dress most of the time in second hand or DIY. I tend to focus in styling more than labels when I visit blogs, like your mesh top, I love it! Reminds me of A Wang! x

Fantastic look. I like to see where things come from – especially when they’re old or secondhand :-) I might not be able to get the same thing, but it’s great for inspiration!

Totally agree with u – no need. well is nice to no is diy or second hand – that way a person – myself – gets inspired and goes down town to charity shops or if i like say shoes from the picture and i dont have info about it just ask in comments and voila. but than again is better to write it in first time and save it for latter. if i have a kenzo cap is tepid to say – kenzo cap from kenzo.com right only if isomething cool wired happened. ha ha but blogs are funny things so is from ur mood then and there. Is it. I usually delete blog posts when they get out of my mind. good point here made. love it for
I have than in some of my posts when previous grey jeans black shoes grey jumpur or if posts with moschino belt moschino bag moschino ribbon as sarcasm because is so so screaming the picture name off so no need for that – same thing u done here. I said did i love it :-)

Yeah sometimes I think writing labels for your outfit comes across as showing off (either in “Hey I’m filthy rich” or “Hey I found a great shirt in the usual department store, and you didn’t!” kind of way). And I couldn’t agree more with you, this has been my principle over the years that your style can never be measured by the price tags of your clothes. We are the only one that can make ourselves look good, and not the $$$.

Great post! Love your outfit as well, like always

You’re right it doesn’t really matter where you got your things from. It’s all in how you put it together, great job by the way! Love the baseball cap as the finishing touch.

You look gorgeous, it’s unfair!

I understand your point. Fashion has become “show off your luxury brand” these days.

However, I am guilty of putting the brands of clothes on my outfit posts because

1. I’m not that creative. I don’t do DIYs much.

2. I want to save time. I tried not putting the labels before but some readers would email me or leave me a comment asking me where I got this or that from .

3. My clothes are cheap, anyway. :)

I admire your talents and your creativity. I wish I could do more DIYs but I’m just too lazy. :(
