SECOND-HAND LOOKBOOK I.

I mostly shop in second-hand shops (if you’d like to know why, check out my post Why I love second-hand shops.

I find that many people consider second hand shops as dirty and disgusting places where you can’t find anything pretty to wear. So my sister and I have taken some photos of our outfits which are created only from the second hand clothes (except for shoes and accessories, those are from elsewhere). All of them are good for spring/summer, only the last one is more winter-like. So here we go!

That would be all for this lookbook but I’ve got plenty more clothes so this is just the first lookbook of the series. I sometimes dress quite eccentric so it might not be someone’s cup of tea, haha.

From time to time people stare at me in a weird way but I guess I have got used to it so much that I don’t even realise it now. I wear what I like and what makes me feel confident and special and that is the most important thing. If you also have some extravagant or colourful clothes that you would like to wear but are afraid to, I encourage you – do it!

There is nothing better than being who you truly are, embracing it and loving it. I used to be very self-conscious everytime I took on some unusual clothes and I just felt like everybody was staring at me the whole day. But I kind of stopped caring a few years ago and since then I’ve been feeling so much happier about my clothes and my fashion. It might look weird sometimes but at least people will remember me, haha.

Love yourself for who you are and don’t be afraid to express it with the way your dress. The weirder someone’s outfit looks, the more I want to get to know them!

Enjoy your day and be proud of yourself.

    I would say that superficially extravagant Cat of Red Dwarf TV series should learn from you how to look unique but still stay elegant.
    Look really… can’t really find right words… and that’s exactly it. Maybe boldly cute? gorgeously rebellious? 🙂
