She Wolf

I have this theory that the less new clothes I have the more creative I get. Im at the point where I really shouldnt buy anything new because the well being of my back is on the line when it comes time to pack up all my stuff in a couple weeks and head back home. Its already incredibly heavy.. But back to my theory. When you buy a new piece the item does the talking..after all thats why you bought it right? you feel like it says or does something important singularly. But after a while its individualism wears off, it becomes just another item in your collection and it becomes something that you work with or incorporate. Ive reached that point and now its time to really play around with things. Sounds like a fast food order.."Ill have the DIY skirt with a crisp white blouse and a side order of leather and polka dots.."
ok Im done being crazy!
Its off to London for the weekend!
-Topshop woven leather shoes, DIY skirt, express blouse, h&m vest, f21 polka dot belt (click to enlarge to see the details!)

i agree on the less clothes the more creative... nice work..

Elaine said...

That's how I feel about creativity. That's why I really try hard not to buy new items very often.. Plus it's easier on your wallet!! So are you going to show off your creativity on your blog?? I hope so! Love your outfit! The greys and whites are fantastic!

Love the grey skirt, and the last pic made me smile :)
speaking of a side of polka dots, just bought a skirt - thanks for reminding me, I'll have to wear it this weekend! Happy weekend!

Dani said...

i do agree with you on that point... sometimes it forces you to come up with new, creative outfits! i'm living out of a suitcase right now, though, and i've been super boring. :(

i have no idea how he was both smoking and drinking coffee... it was pretty disgusting. i'm just going to chalk it up to having too much downtime at the studio!

oh, and have fun in london!!!!!!!!

Emily said...

Great point. Although nothing beats buying a new piece of clothing =P

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! You have a lovely blog =)

katie d said...

you're totally right... I had only one suitcase of clothes for about a full month, and I had to get really creative with the limited amount of clothes I had. It was kind of fun, actually.

Love the vest (of course!) :)


Maverick Malone said...

Cool outfit-it's true! The less you have, the more creative you learn to be! It's a challenge, but it can be fun and equally rewarding, too :)

xox, mavi

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

you're right about forcing yourself to be creative - it's sometimes hard work to look this good!

Vik said...

I think your totally right!
its essential to play with your clothes and mix it up abit so you dont get 'samey' plus you may find a hidden gem in the back of your wardrobe that you forgot you had!
Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
much love from Ireland xx
