If I remember correctly you have not seen any of these garments before although I like to mix my wardrobe and I like all my clothes to appear on my blog more than once. This T-shirt has been in my wardrobe for a long time... it has also been in my mother´s wardrobe for some time too. See, this is my favourite way of "shopping"- just revisiting all the garments that are stashed around at home. I acquired the skirt two days ago when visiting a secondhand shop after a long time. I have never found there anything interesting but when I found myself nearby, I went in. And walked out with this skirt, two trousers, a scarf  and a flier with an invitation for a secondhand shopping event (where I bought an amazing top with bead embroidery, a dress with Art Nouveau inspired embroidery, a lace vest and a fake fur collar for one of my future projects - I will put photo of these treasures soon on my Instagram - right now I am washing it). And it all cost a ridiculous amount of money, cca 1 and half euro a piece. I can see now why some people make a business out of it. You are not always lucky but can find really nice stuff for a low price, when it does not fit you or into your wardrobe you can resell it. I see a business plan emerging right now :D (but what should I do with my hoarding problem?)
