Reinventing my wardrobe

I started packing away my summer threads and hauling out my (very tiny) winter wardrobe. I found some dresses I last wore before pregnancy and had a look to see if they still fitted. I have a few velvet sleeveless dresses that has buttons right down the front and none of them would button up past my tummy! I tried starting from the bottom and also tried from the top it just wouldn’t close over the gut and the boozums.:-) I was totally frustrated as they’re still in good nick and in an inspired moment, I decided to wear them as ‘coats’. So now I have a few more outfits to add to my little wardrobe. I wear them over trousers and polonecks or long-sleeved t-shirts. Problem solved! Necessity truly is the mother of all invention.

    Hey Aries, I used to be like that but I always found myself regretting it afterwards if I saw what someone else did with their clothes and how they reinvented it.

    What a great idea! Well done Shell. I too have a very small winter wardrobe. I really have to find some money for some tops, haven’t bought anything for 3 years or more. xxxx

    none of my tops last long enough to really recycle and I don’t have enough clothes to pack away anything – I tend to wear the same stuff winter and summer and just add a jersey in winter – Durban doesnt really get cold.

    Isn’t that the saddest thing? That we run around in threadbare clothes while trying to raise our kids as best as we can?
