Hope you’re nearly as excited as I am about my new outfit post. Most pieces of this ensemble are second hand. The beautiful oriental embroidered coat I scored at a clothing swap a friend of mine hosted a few months ago. Aren’t the details absolutely gorgeous? It was my very first swapping experience and I really loved it! We all have a fair amount of clothing hanging in our closets of which we can’t remember the reasoning behind the purchase. Believe it or not someone else will most likely love them. That’s why clothing swaps are a fun way to refresh your wardrobe without spending any money.

My stripy skirt and cropped shirt I bought from friends who were clearing out there closet and had hardly ever worn these elegant pieces. The skirt moves beautifully because of the stiffness of the fabric and the see-through lines create linear shadows around you. The loose, cropped shirt makes the look breezy and nonchalant.

As a finishing touch I added some accessories. The pink and gold necklace came from the same clothing swap as the coat. I know what you’re thinking: that was a very fruitful afternoon indeed! The golden, spiral shaped earrings are a find from a vintage market in the Sint-Gorikshallen in the centre of Brussels a few years ago. Every first Sunday of the month there are some great vintage treasures to be found there.

Two years ago I got this second hand purse for Christmas and have used it daily since. Unfortunately it’s getting a bit wrecked and I’ll have to start looking for a new one or try to salvage this one if possible. Tips on sustainable and fair bag brands are always welcome!
