One of my favourite quotes is ‘If you can’t go a day without thinking about something, then by all means pursue it.’
Now, I’ve had a myriad of emails and calls from friends, readers and family who are highly suspicious that I may have be going a little overboard with the shopping.
I’d like to put their worries to rest here and now by saying I’m not. Cue the suspicious piercing eyes.
(Gives in). Okay I am a little. But. I have a method.
-First off, I’m a thrift hunter. I sniff out thrift shop bargains for a living. I live for them. The thrill about thrift shopping is that you never know what you’ll find. Oxfam, Salvation Army, Snooper’s Paradise, Cow Vintage etc aresome of my fave high street thrift/vintage stops. My leather cross-body bag is totally a thrift find. It originally cost circa £90. And it was brand new. Pure leather & brand new. Imagine the concubility!
-I do not know (yet) how to DIY my own stuff but I do RESHUFFLE my closet. I list my old stuff on Ebay and use profits to get new things. It’s not always a huge profit (damn stingy bidders on Ebay) but well worth a try.
-I also mix and match items so they look completely different.
-At the end of the day ANYBODY can have a style blog (without breaking the bank) and continuously post a new outfit everyday for a month and not run out of clothes. It just depends on how clean, elegant or fresh you want your looks to appear.
-And finally and most importantly, this makes me happy. I am currently looking for a new job and every rejection letter is just as depressing as the last. Playing dress up, blogging and writing is the only time I can forget about everything. So I totally enjoy doing this. If you need my services in any way (shopping, writing, promotions) feel free to contact me.
