Old clothes

I've noticed that people are often embarrassed about wearing old clothes. I'm not talking about vintage, but your own clothes. Why is this? You don't need to wear new clothes the whole time to look good, I think.The main questions are "Is it in good condition?" and "Does it still fit me?" and "Will I be able to style it with my other clothes?". If the answer is yes to all these questions, why throw it out just cause it's old?
I got this top from Bik Bok when I was 12/13.

I'm wearing this Zara trench coat for three years now. Not even starting to get tired of it!

This blazer was one of my Christmas present when I was 12. Now I have changed the buttons to silver military ones.

This skirt I've had since I was what.. 7? My mum bought it from some kiddie store back then. And the top from Cubus is 5 years old.

This H&M young jacket I bought when I moved to Luxembourg, which was 7 years ago.


  1. wow, love the skirt, but it is too small...

  2. how would you know if it's too small? :D if you mean too short, then no it's good height, nobody can see my bum or anything ;)

  3. I totally agree with you! Great outfits. :)

  4. I think it's mostly to do with people's styles changing as they change and figure out what kind of style suits them. It's not to say you can't reuse some things from the past, especially main wardrobe items.

  5. i think i've already tried that but it didn't work:/

    yeh i didn't want to already show thr outfit now because then i wouldn't need another outfitpost on monday:P

    loove that skirt, by the way:DD

  6. It also depends on changing style and changing body weight. I mean, things from a few years ago definitely don't fit me anymore now. But, regardless, great post! So true!

  7. I totally agree with you. I've got loads of old clothes and I'm still seriously in love with them. That coat from Zara is amazing :)

  8. I agree with you !! I never sell my clothes.

    I have clothes when i was 14



  9. You are right, I also wear some of my old clothes.

    You are so cute <3

  10. You're so right, I also have still some of my old clothes.

  11. You're so right, I also have still some of my old clothes.

  12. Your absolutely right, I have a wintercoat that I still wear/fit after a lot of body changing through out the years (like 4/5), every year it's the question if it still fits and every time it does. Some clothes are just mend to grow with you. Great post!
