OUTFIT OF THE DAY // THE UPCYCLED JUMPSUIT

18.5.11



 
So here I am wearing my jumpsuit as harem pants. 

Inspired by the fabulous Tiany Kiriloff and her piece on 'The extended life of the party dress', I couldn't help but thinking about 'transforming' one of my favorite wardrobe items. Tiany actually upcycled one of her floral strapless cocktail dresses by  wearing a T-shirt underneath. Simple and yet the result is quite more than meets the eye, stuningly perfect. You should really check it out.  


The idea was to kind of reinvent an outstanding piece into something new and refreshing. Don't we all have that one dress we all rather quickly fell in love with but then we find ourselves not wearing it more than twice? That's right! You keep thinking everyone will notice you're wearing it again. 

So I started running around my closet like a mad woman till I bumped into this last season's strapless jumpsuit. Same story: totally adored it the first months and then it disappeared into the closet for being ignored for months. By reading Tiany's piece and picking out a simple tee my jumpsuit is now back in the running and effortlessly rocking my wardrobe as harem pants. A quick 'Hooray' would be in order I guess...

I WAS WEARING:
H&M HEADBAND
ZARA T-SHIRT
T-BAGS JUMPSUIT
CHLOÉ SANDALS (LAST WORN HERE)

  17. I'm probably not the first one to say this but I love those sandals. What a dream to own a pair of Chloés! I just recently discovered your blog and think you have great style. May I ask for which medium you work? I'm a Journalism student myself, hoping to find work in the biz after summer! x Catherine

  36. Wauw, je ziet er echt super mooi uit! Ik ga je volgen :)

    Het merk van de nagellak is volgensmij La Femme Beauty, niet echt een bekend merk dus. Hij komt volgensmij bij de Big Bazar vandaan ;)

    Ik wou vroeger ook redacteur worden maar ik ben niet zo goed in frans dus ben ik maar in de mode branche gegaan. Ontwerpen is ook wel leuk en het is tof om creatief bezig te zijn. Heb onlangs ook nog een tshirt van filles a papa gekocht, ik vind ze ook echt een tof merk! Ik volg je :) x
