OUTFITS | Glitter Buttoned Up Shirt

Vintage shirt, Alexander Wang shorts, vintage Chanel shoes, DIY hairy purse

Last week my boyfriend and me visited my mother who lives in Brussels. On our way there we stopped by the fantastic city of Antwerp. Besides a couple of waffels we didn't buy anything that wasn't pre-owned. Out of all the secondhand glory my absolute best find was this (almost disgusting) 1990's synthetic glitter shirt for only €4,50! It is tailored extremely narrow and is made out of some type of plastic thread which makes it feel rough but at the same time makes it stiff and gives it shape. I absolutely love giving garments that look ugly and outdated to most people a stylish new life!

I love your philosophy of finding beauty in things that were once considered beautiful but aren't anymore. Very neat look & I like the sequence of photos in this post!

Wow! What an amazing find! When you described this in your tweet, I imagined it in t-shirt form, but this is much much better. Love how you've styled it!

PS. Hope you make it into bloggerswardrobe too! Good luck!

I've been reading your blog for a long time and absolutely love it. As you have said yourself, your blog is just not about buying new things, it's about timeless classics and beautiful second-hand pieces like this blouse. And you of course are gorgeous. Thank you for all the inspiration you've given me!

Je hebt hem goed gecombineerd, ik kan me voorstellen dat ie nogal snel overdetop word. ;)
