Denim Remix

denim jacket in summer

One of the tasks I set for myself for this summer (while I’m on holiday and supposedly have a bit more time) is to organise my wardrobe(s) in both Homebases. Needless to say it hasn’t happened… not yet, anyway. But I have been sort of busy with other stuff, travelling, blogging etc.

I finally decided to see what’s lurking at the bottom of the wardrobe in Homebase 2, and dug out a few pieces that haven’t seen the light of day for… probably years. So, They’re due a ‘performance evaluation’ to see if I should keep them or toss them. And as I wanted to take part in  Sacramento‘s fabulous Share-in-Style link-up party featuring all things denim, it is the perfect opportunity to put together a little bottom-of-the-barrel outfit remixing old pieces.

The dress is by Ghost, the clutch bag (which also has a metal strap) by Minna Parikka and the jacket… I have no idea where that came from. The only items I wear on a regular basis are the Tom Ford sunglasses (I love them, they go with anything…) and the necklace, which is one of my favourites (you’ve seen it here before), by Snö of Sweden (Snö means Snow, in case you’re wondering… Yes, I did study some Swedish at school, and no, I cannot really speak the language)


So, what do think? What should I do with the dress and the jacket, toss or keep?



Linking up with Sacramento for Share-in-Style 
Go and see all the fabulous bloggers sharing their denim ideas.

      Thank you. I took a chance with these pieces, to see if I could make them work, and this is very encouraging.

    I think they're both keepers. The dress looks fabulous on you and paired with that denim jacket gives it such a fun edgy, cool-kind-of-gal look. I seemed to be throwing on my little denim jacket with just about everything these days.

      Thanks, I may just hang on the them a bit longer… I seem to wear the jacket maybe once or twice a year as it's a bit more casual / bohemian than my taste in general.

    Both the dress and the denim jacket fit you so perfectly, accentuating all the beautiful curves – and the energy of the photos is great, so I assume you FELT great in these pieces too. Yes? And that is the main reason to keep the clothes, for me at least. I loved all the pieces here, but the clutch is dreamy!!! 🙂 xxx

      Thanks, Natalia. I actually like these pictures, and I'm still not very comfortable looking at my own pictures, and find posing very difficult. And that is partly why I keep posting my pictures: maybe I will learn to pose, and get more comfortable lookingvat my own pictures (or at least stop wanting to immediately destroy them all…) Somehow it all just fell into place here.
