1. Can I substitute it with something I already have in my closet?
2. Is it possible to DIY? If so, would I be just as happy with my own creation?
To prove that I can overcome my wardrobe dilemmas by asking myself these two questions, I thought I might do an experiment. When cleaning my room, I found a box that I had labelled "For eBay". Of course I had
not got round to not actually bothered to sell the clothes in said box, and so was able to recover this old Supre grey pencil skirt from about 7 years ago. Complete with wrinkles and the tag sticking out....
1. Can I wear something I already have in my closet?
(Pencil skirt: Supre (old). Top: Random. Bag: Gift from mum (old). Necklace: Lovisa. Shoes: 3.1 Phillip Lim)
So using all old clothes, an old bag, a trend-based necklace from a chain store and (my only) investment accessory, I was able to create something I'm happy with. I've actually always loved all-grey outfits and I had one right under my nose the whole time... so what do you think? Do you think I'm on to something?
Watch this space... I'm going to attempt question 2 soon.
