The final one of my closet orphans
is this blazer. It took me a while to figure out an outfit that I felt ok about…. and even so, I only liked the pictures with my hand on the hip, in all the others I looked like a box.
While I love the colour of this blazer, I’m not feeling its shapeless-ness [yes, that’s a word!]. I think it has to go. Such a shame, this style looks amazing on others
– but it really isn’t for me. I’m going to search for a new, colourful & fitted blazer.
„Ugh, thinking about clothes that I shouldn’t have bought! My life is sooo hard!“
This challenge was fun!
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 🙂
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…
