My number one tip for cleaning out your wardrobe

Hello, It’s me! I had been a little behind on my blog lately but I’m back with lots of new ideas and content to share with ya! So, today is all about cleaning out that wardrobe and letting go of those jeans you’ve probably had since being 18 years old. Little exaggeration? uh no, you’d be surprised how many of us keep useless items of clothing for so many years. Being a fashion blogger with no actual ‘personal style’ means my wardrobe can get a little out of hand sometimes, my rail was ready to collapse last week but my dad came to save the day just in time. I have no more room on my rail whatsoever, so a lot of my clothes get put in a spare room now which my dad is NOT happy about. He’s always confused to why I have so many clothes and why I cling on to things I never actually wear no more. I’ve always been emotionally attached to clothes, is that weird? probably. I find it so hard to get rid of clothes when they have made amazing memories with me, been to places with me, made me look sassy when going through breakups, helped me experiment with style and most important of all, covered up my naked body. Its kind of like a baby’s blanket.

Good morning! Today i’m sharing some pictures with you from last month taken by the verrrrrry talented Joe Rigby, you can see some of his work at www.josephrigbyphotography.co.uk  I’m love love loving these shots! However, I do wish I ironed my dress before leaving the house oops. Anyway, speaking of the dress! This is another gem of a dress that I don’t wear enough purely because i’m scared of ruining it and when ya a bit clumsy like me and known for spilling things on yourself then i’m guessing you understand my anxiety here. I found this dress on Depop after searching for hours, again. The dress stood out to me right away and funnily enough the owner of the dress (who had bought the dress off someone else) was a girl who I’ve had on Instagram for a while! So if you’re reading this Ruby, i’m thanking you again for this lil dreamy dress (still don’t know why you wanted to sell it haha) God knows how many times the dress has been passed down and how long its been around for but I like to think it was originally made in the 60’s. The dress is beautifully hand made and has this cute daisy chain detail around the neck. I also love how it zips up at the front rather than having the usual buttons or zip at the back. The dress fits my petite frame perfectly and has a stand up collar! a favourite of mine, so I definitely think this was a match made in heaven! It’s hard when looking for the perfect dress and it’s definitely not going to suddenly appear after looking through Ebay for 10 minutes, unless yer a lucky bugger! It takes a lot of time looking through every rail of vinatge/charity shops and spending a lot of time online, on places such as Etsy and Depop but once you find the perfect dress you’ll know it’s meant to be.

Hiiiii friends, strangers, lovers and animals! It’s nice to be back after having a little break from Instagram and blogging. Sometimes we get trapped into this circle of always trying to please people and feeling like we have to upload everything that’s happening in our lives (I’m guilty for this since I’ve become a blogger) but I can tell you I have never felt more refreshed after taking a 5 day break from social media. Last weekend I went to a festival with some lovely friends and I didn’t have any signal on my phone to check my Emails, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and YouTube! That’s a hella lot of checking! But I was glad. Not being able to check my phone made me appreciate the present moment, something I haven’t done for a while. I was enjoying sitting around in the campsite without having my head stuck in my phone and being able to watch bands without filming the whole bloody gig! I returned home feeling a lot more positive and I still didn’t feel like I had to check social media straight away, I was just happy to see my dad AND my cat of course! However, there’s always a downside isn’t there? I’ve only gone and brought a chest infection back with me so whilst I’m bed bound not able to do anything else, I thought I would share these lovely shots with you taken by Arthur Yushi. You can check out some of his amazing work here.

 

This dress!! I fell in love as soon as I lay my eyes on it. I was sifting through depop looking at 60s mini dresses and I was so happy I found this vintage gem. It fits perfect and I can’t get enough of that contrast panel! Dreamy dreamy dreamy. You know when you have that one dress that your scared to wear because it’s so pretty? That was my situation with this dress. It was actually stuck in my wardrobe for at least a year and I kept saying to myself that I would save it for a special occasion. Anyway, that special occasion never happened so I thought I would do a little outfit shoot with it on! Yes, I’ve cropped the shoes out because I forgot to bring the right pair of shoes with me which meant I had to wear the ones that I already had on and they didn’t match with the dress but hey ho, the dress does all the talking! 

Hope you enjoyed this post!
