This post I did already back when we lived in Delft, Netherlands. Back then I frequently visited second hand and charity shops which were plenty in Delft. Back at those times there were not so much discussions about reuse or remodelling as we have now frequently every day in the media. I consider myself truly and utterly remodelling miracle. Well sometimes one needs to be honest.
Long cardigans can save your outfit problems in a second…proportion play in clothing is something I often do, cardigans and vests with long sihouettes have been my all time favourites, mostly because they suit my bodytype and also of the fact that in this way I can play more with layering clothes. Therefore when I came across this woolblend two pieced knit outfit at the second hand I just could not leave it…I had in my mind what would become of it and the price was also quite amazing- only 6€!
I joined the original cardigan with the skirt from the skirts hem, in this way I ensured that I have enough fabric also for the big pockets. It is a nonchalant ( relaxed and calm in a way that shows that you do not care or are not worried about anything) effect on a cardigan to have pockets, somewhere to put your hands and make the style more street-smart.
Oh and the shoes which I wear in these two pics are a gift from my friend; velvet stretch ankle boots from the golden 90s!
Cardigan works also nicely paired with denim culottes (my own design) and vintage leather boots.
