Save the Closet Orphans – Meet my orphans

I decided to take part in Lili’s Mission: Save the Closet Orphans. It’s about clothes that you own but somehow never seem to wear. I have a lot of clothes that don’t get the wear they deserve [In fact, I found so many items with tags still on them… I think I’m going to have a blog sale soon!] and I think this is a fun way to create some new outfits. So today, I’ll show you my closet orphans and then in the next week I’ll show you four outfits where I wear those items. Of course, I’ll be wearing them outside my house too! This is a pretty purple dress by Dorothy Perkins. I love the colour, but the cut is something new for me since I haven’t owned a sheath dress before. I’m not sure how to style this yet… but I’ll have to figure out a way.

I bought this Primark blazer only recently in London. I really like it, but I haven’t worn it yet… it’s one of these grown-up clothing items and I’m not sure if I can pull it off.

I wore this H&M skirt some time last summer, but I really need to find a way to wear it in colder weather as well. It’s a little bit see-through and really loud, so I’ll really have to think about what I can pair with it.

Another one from H&M – a simple white dress. I had to wear white blouses all the time at my last job, so I’m really not into wearing white clothes… but I want to incorporate more light colours into my wardrobe & I’m determined to make this work.

Style bloggers: Do you own similar items? Please link me to your outfits wearing them! I’m open for any ideas smile You can also still participate, I’m sure it’s going to be fun to see what everybody wears! And I’m pretty sure most of you have some closet orphans as well…

    How funny that your skirt and blazer go together perfectly.  You must have been secretly thinking of that lonely skirt when you bought the blazer.  Very excited to see the bottom of that sheath dress; looks intricate.

    What a fun project.  For the purple sheath dress, just keep it classic and you’ll look smashing. And I can’t wait to see the blazer on you, I bet the color is just perfect for your coloring!

    YAY! ich freue mich, dass du dabei bist :-) Und wie ich sehe, bin ich nicht die einzige die total schöne Sachen ungetragen im Schrank rumhängen lässt… das macht Mut ;-) Ich bin gespannt wie du sie stylst!

    hihi, wie witzig. ich habe gerade eben in der sbahn ein mädchen gesehen, dass ein weißes kleid mit schwarzer strumpfhose und flachen schwarzen stiefeletten anhatte, das sah so unfassbar gut aus, dass ich seitdem überlege wo ich schnell so schuhe und ein schönes weißes kleid herkrieg. (eine gerad geklaute stylingidee fürs weiße kleid.) :)

    I have that dress (the H&M one) on pink and grey, and I seem to wear them only around the house or as nightshirts. Bad me.

    This challenge is a good one though, I need to try something like this too.
