I rarely buy “new” clothing — I personally love buying vintage clothing and more times than not, I up-cycle them by tailoring them to reflect me.
A few reasons — It’s another creative outlet for me. I love curating my own style instead of solely following trends.
The quality of the clothing is usually way better — because things used to actually be made to last.
The environmental + human rights factors, and honestly — I don’t want to wear the same clothes as everyone else.
This dress was a midi, and I turned it into a mini.
Believe it or not, your clothing reflects your personal style which in turn is a reflection of your feelings, emotions, and thoughts. It reflects you. I think getting more creative with your clothing can also help you get to know yourself better.
