Dress by Isabel Marant Etoile
Back in August, I put this dress for sell, feeling a major fall out for it. I thought the cut wasn't that flattering, suddenly it had too many flaws, I needed extra cash so it had to go. Simple as that.
But the listing dragged on, weeks passing by, no sale happening and the dress remained hanging there, set aside, among my other clothes but unworn, waiting for a new home.
Around exactly the same time, during summer sales, an APC skirt from the fall collection caught my eyes: the knee length, flirty pleats, side pockets and lightweight wool instantly attracted me, it was such a well-made basic. Trying it on in the Bon Marché changing room, I could already imagine it worn with so many of my items but I was and still am trying to restrain my fashion budget/purchases so I decided to wait to gather enough funds or to stalk second hand places for a lucky find. So far, I failed on both accounts.
APC "Line" skirt
However staring for a prolonged time at the set aside lone dress must have triggered something or maybe the possibility of being left with an unwanted item sparked my brain because I don't know how but suddenly I saw that my dress could turn out to be the skirt I was crushing on by simply wearing a top over it.
I thought about it for the first time a few weeks ago:
Zara trench/ COS sweater / Isabel Marant Etoile dress & scarf / New Balance x Comptoir des Cotonniers sneakers / Céline Trio bag.
I'm wearing: Blazer, dress, scarf: Isabel Marant Etoile / sweater: H&M / striped tshirt: New Look / Mittens : C&A/ Tote bag: Céline / Brogues: Dries van Noten
So nothing new under the sun. Just so satisfying to rekindle an old love and make it fresh/new again which is why I wanted to share.
