Refining My Wardrobe
These jeans. THESE JEANS! They were such a faff to get my hands on! I left it a little late waiting for the M.i.h sale, so I bought them in the size up that I'd usually go for as that was all they had left. I'd never bought anything from them before, so I had no idea how their sizing worked; Surprise surprise, they didn't fit. So, in the process of posting them back I found my size on a different website for the same price and bought them. Only issue was, as I was looking at how they fit other people online, I found them almost £50 cheaper on a little site called Bad Denim! So I ended up buying 3 pairs to get it right, and I'm still waiting for one refund... BUT, it was totally worth it. I love them. They fit me perfectly, I don't have to fold up the hem (which is unheard of, even for some "cropped" trousers), but I like how they look folded, too. They are pretty retro looking, but I feel like they have a slightly modern twist on the 70's jean fit. Pops of colour with minimal everything else is my jam right now, so this burnt orange colour is a great addition to my currently very sparse wardrobe (and it matches my hair!). Jeans: M.i.h | T shirt: H&M Conscious collection | Shoes: Birkenstocks I've had a pretty major clear out of clothing, sold some on eBay, taken lots to charity and pretty much halved my already small wardrobe. I hadn't worn some of my remaining vintage pieces in well over a year, so I figured if someone else can get some more wear out of them, then why not sell them/give them away! It feels really good to start over, and I can't wait to see where my style is heading. It seems to have changed a lot over the past 6 months/year, but I've never had the money to buy what I really wanted and therefore actually show that it had changed (if that makes sense?). Now I'm earning a little more, I can feel less guilty about making some pricier (but more ethical and better quality) purchases every now and again and to be honest, it feels great! Next on my list is a new bag that will comfortably fit my camera in it, and occasionally my iPad Pro (12.9")... suggestions are more than welcome!
Have you ever had a complete wardrobe overhaul? I'd love to chat about it in the comments!
