Flowers, Birds and Grandma skirts






A lot of people ask me where I get my clothes from and how I can even afford this. Though I do indeed spend loads of money on clothes and they are usually more important to me than food or any other articles I could possibly need, I spent much less than people expect me to. That’s because I´m incredibly talented at finding bargains. (Everybody needs to be good at something, okay?! Sale is my favourite season of the year and preowned clothes make me happy. I almost never end up buying stuff for the original price. It´s all about comparing prices and being a little bit patient. If the highstreet stores and all the vintage places fail, try your friends and family. Never underestimate the wardrobe of your grandparents and parents. Everything was fashionable at some point and will return. My skirt for example is stolen from my grandma and the denim shirt used to belong to my dad.  I got half the outfit for FREE. That´s pretty great isn´t it?! 

WHAT AM I WEARING?!

skirt- my gran´s
shirt- my dad´s
sandals- birkenstock (sorry for the disturbing photo of my feet ;)
choker - extreme largeness
top- Primark

 Jede Menge Leute fragen mich immer wo ich meine Klamotten her hab und wie ich mir das Alles überhaupt leisten kann. Obwohl ich natürlich Unmengen Geld für Kleider ausgebe weil sie mir dann doch immer ein bisschen wichtiger sind wie Essen oder andere Dinge die ich irgendwie gebrauchen könnte, geb ich immer noch weniger aus wie die Meisten denken. Ich bin nämlich wahnsinnig talentiert wenn es darum geht Schnäppchen zu finden. (Jeder muss für irgendwas gut sein, oder?!) Sale ist meine Lieblingsjahreszeit und gebrauchte Kleider machen mich froh. Ich bezahle fast nie denn original Preis. Es geht einfach darum Preise zu vergleichen und ein kleines bisschen geduldig zu sein. Wenn´s im Einkaufszentrum nix gibt, und dein mega hipper VIntageladen um die Ecke die auch im Stich lässt, versuchs mal bei Freunden und Familie. Wirklich, unterschätz niemals den Kleiderschrank deiner Großeltern und Eltern. Alles war irgendwann mal modern und kommt wieder zurück. Meinen Rock zum Beispiel hab ich von meiner Oma gestohlen und das Jeanshemd war mal meinem Papi. D.h. Die Hälfte meines Outfits war komplett kostenlos! Ziemlich cool was?! ;)

  22. YES I absolutely love this, recycling at it's finest! I always do this to my boyfriend especially the stuff that doesn't fit him anymore I just keep wearing it until he forgets it's his...that genuinely happens- the other day he was like is that yours....or? ;) You've definitely inspired me to look around some charity shops and vintage places now, I have found a few urban outfitter bargains in marie curie which I am impressed by! xxx

  23. I love seeing the word SALE too! I don't usually buy pieces if it's not sale because I always find it expensive only to be used twice or thrice. :)) I love your outfit most especially that top :)

    Have a great day!
