This is an important outfit for me – The jacket in particular is priceless! As my mum made it during her favourite year of all – 1986. She also made it in pink and black, however this is the only one left. I have worn this many times and I always feel so chic. I paired it with white trousers for Graduate Fashion Week last year when I was a finalist for the 3ina Creative Direction & Styling award. For those of you who don’t know this: this week is Fashion Revolution Week! which means it’s the best time to show your loved clothes, the labels you invest in and why, share your sustainable style by showing how you rewear, reuse and recycle your clothes. Anyone remember a little shop called BAY?! before bae was a thing lol. I’d forgotten all about it until I picked up this off the shoulder yellow piece for just £2.50! it goes very well with my secondhand, 70p Tesco trousers don’t you think 😉
Shop wisely to save lives.
