…and the memories continue with yet another thrifty style theme plucked directly from my fashion past:
In the early 90’s (& beyond) I was heavily into the whole grunge style scene, along with that oh-so-cool Seattle Sound & the movie Singles, that alternative trend has stuck with me throughout the years. To this day most of my daily ensembles still consist of chunky-clunky-comfy boots paired with boldly patterned vintage dresses & cool tights (although nowadays I don’t tend to shred my legwear as I did in my younger years).
Hat (gift) €0 – Grandpa sweater (inherited & refashioned) €0 – Vintage Dress (thrifted & shortened) €1 – Tights (1982) €1 – Suede Lace-ups (thrifted years ago) €3
Total outfit cost: €5
Quick Tip: If you don’t have time to shrink the sides of a bit-too-big-dress (or just don’t want to) simply gather the excess fabric together in the centre of the back & pin with a funky brooch!
Snag some thrifty inspiration (+ join up & share your love of second hand) over on my Gone Thrifting facebook page!
As always feel free to take part in the thrifty fun & vote for the upcoming themes…
