If you want to see the first post and read about my general size, etc go here.
Dress – Handmade by me. It’s actually a maternity top pattern which I made into a dress while I was pregnant with Bounce. I really like it and it’s super comfy so I still wear it.
Top – handmade charcoal stretch. Made it ages ago it’s a good wardrobe staple.
Tights – footless tights hand-me-down from my sister.
Shoes – bright blue sparkly flats $9 from the warehouse. I’ve worn them so much they are coming apart – **sigh**
Accessories – necklace is from a store called Balckbird in Heathcote Valley – $24, Rings – arrow
Evaluation – I love the colour in this dress, it is so easy to wear and it’s quite a nice shape even though it’s officially maternity wear.
Dress – hand-me-down from my sister she bought it from an op-shop in Hawkes Bay about 9 years ago.
Tights – opaques had them in the wardrobe since highschool!
Boots – The Atlas bought these for me on a trip we took to Milan in 2004 (bless him) they are so comfy. They are Campers so they were pricey (200 euros!!! I would NEVER spend this on shoes but The Atlas pointed out when are we ever going to be in Milan again)
accessories – necklace from my sister-in-law in the UK. Rings – measuring ring from friends – Hawkes Bay, leaf ring was my Grandmothers and even though she had a HUGE collection of jewellery she almost always wore it.
Evaluation – I LOVE this outfit and I feel so good in it and I always get great compliments when I wear it.
Top – This was a cast off of Deb’s sister it wasn’t quite finished so I made it my own.
Beads – 50cents a strand from Marsden school fair.
Jeans – off cast from a friend.
Belt – 50cents from Salvation Army
Earrings from Sis in law, topshop UK
Evaluation – I do wear my jeans quite a lot but I feel good in them if I have a ‘fun’ top and this so fits the bill for me. I love the colours and the fabric and it doesn’t look like I could have bought it.
Dress – gift from sister bought 2011 op-shop Kohukohu.
Tights – bought in a cheap shop in Hawkes Bay about 9 years ago.
Boots – Gok’d hand-me-down boots from my sister. Cut them up and folded the lining to the outside.
Evaluation – I wore this to the craft fair this weekend and I felt very good. I love blue and I quite enjoy the ‘theme’d’ colour.
Dress- bought in 1998 from Glassons for $40 I have had SO much wear from this
Top/Jacket – hand-me-down from my sister.
Tights – also hand-me-down from my sister
Shoes – bought in 2005 from TKMaxx in the UK for about £9. I like a good stiletto heel but you can’t wear cheap stilettos for a whole day!
Accessories – brooches needle felted by me
Evaluation – I like this outfit it feels fun and grown up at the same time and it is SO comfy (except the shoes)
Music day again.
Top – hand-me-down from my mum Max merino top.
Shorts – handmade by me – my music ‘uniform’
Tights – bought from Farmers in 2009 and hand painted with kaka beak flowers up the sides by me
Shoes – bought in Barcelona 2004 feature a chicken on one and an egg on the other. I think they cost about 26 euros
Beads- I love these beads they were a gift from a 7-year-old I taught. She picked them and I think her mum was a bit embarrassed but I think they are awesome and I get heaps of wear out of them.
Hat – I think this is another hand-me-down from my other sister. I like hats but this is one of the only ones I feel suits me.
Evaluation – pretty good for a music day outfit. I like the general vibe.
Top – hand-me-down from a friend about 9 years ago with a singlet from JayJays underneath bought 3 years ago (about $7).
Skirt – handmade by a friend and sent to me when we lived in the UK.
Footless tights – hand me down from my sister – first time wearing them.
Boots- bought in the UK for £15 good for cycling in
Accessories – beads – from my Grandmothers collection, earrings gift from my sister-in-law from TopShop UK
Evaluation – This outfit works for biking in. It’s nice to have some colour in my life. I’m not sure the top is the best look for me… open to feedback on that one!
So there we are week two. Next week is going to be all homemade coats and jackets. Doing this has been making me think about wardrobe gaps – what are your gaps? What do you always need in your wardrobe? What can you never find? What do you always want more of??
