Floral 'flage.

June 7, 2017

Is your glass half empty or half full? I like to think I'm more the latter, hoping things will turn out better than anticipated, keeping my fingers crossed, sometimes I even 'whooop' - I know, that's bad. Anyhow, when it comes to flicking through the rails in charity shops boy oh boy do I only see positives, others' missed opportunities are my go-to, hangers looking sad, lost, unloved - BINGO 'll try you on, I'll give you a go. Which is exactly what happened on a day trip to Leeds back in April when I met up with BBC Radio presenter Georgey Spanswick for an interview about how to shop preloved. (The answer is simple: 1. know your body shape; 2. know your wardrobe gaps; 3. get trying on).

 

A vintage rail is always my first port of call which is where I spotted this 2-piece floral camouflage ensemble: an oversized shirt with massive sew-in shoulder pads and a matching elasticated waist long skirt with side pockets - I'm in. Quick as a flash I was in the changing room and before I could say "what d'you think?" Georgey had parted with £20 and handed me the carrier bag: "Go on then, style that little lot up".

 

So here it is, shoulder pads have been filed under b for (recycling) bin; shirt is tucked in; buttons are done up; sleeves rolled up; I've added a belt to hide the laccy and added ankle boots for a tougher look. Blinged to the max with gold adornments and my millennial pink shades.
