Who says your Christmas outfit has to be expensive?
It didn’t cost me anything… well, a few years ago it did.
This was my Christmas look:
This blouse belonged to my mother, when she was around my age. She made it herself, so it’s one of a kind. I love how flowy and detailed it is, it even has pockets!
Underneath I’m wearing a simple striped pencil skirt, which barely cost me anything. I bought it last year at Primark.
The shoes cost me only €40,-. When I saw them on the H&M website I knew I had to have them. I’ve had them for almost 2 years already.
The jewelry I’m wearing isn’t made of real gold or real pears. I don’t really care about that kind of stuff. Sure, it’s beautiful. But something fake can make me just as happy!
The earrings I’m wearing I’ve had for years. I honestly don’t even remember where I got them. The helix exists of a cross and chain. I took the chain from a bracelet I broke and simply added the chain to the cross, because I liked it better that way.
The ring I got as a present a few years ago. It’s an unusual piece and that’s what I love about it!
I’ve worn this beautiful statement neckless a dozen of times and it never bores me. Without it I feel like my outfit would be plain and unfinished.
You see? An outfit doesn’t have to be expensive, or even brand new. Nobody has ever seen me worn this before, because I made it new . Keep mixing up items, look between your (or someone else’s) old pile of clothes and use your fantasy. It’s so much more fun than buying whatever is in the window of your favorite store.
Have fun mixing up your wardrobe!
