Making Old Thing New Again

My goodness! It’s well into 2010 already! Over a quarter of the way in as a matter of fact. I am thinking it is going to be a pretty spectacular year in my opinion. I have so so many things planned already. I’ve already made many a list in my diary on lovely lined postits (my new favourite thing in the world along with these squirrel shaped paperclips I found the other day). But a new year calls for new resolutions. I know a lot of people don’t like resolutions but I think they are a great way of making you set goals and at least start the year on a positive, hopeful note.
One of my resolutions revolves around my wardrobe. I thought I’d share it with you which may perhaps help me keep it. We’re all in this together now!
Contrary to popular belief, I don’t actually own many clothes. I find myself wearing the same outfits over and over again. I also seem to have a lot of clothes I dislike, are terrible quality and just buy almost out of habit or convenience. So this year, I plan to break this little cycle and perhaps stop consuming so much.
This year, I plan to try and only buy either vintage clothing or garments I have made myself, preferably out of vintage fabric, trims and patterns. Perhaps even try to get hold of some vintage fastenings. There are a few thing that I will have to make an exception for, like under garments and hosiery but I’m going to try as hard as can with everything else.
I’ve already made a start on my little New Years vintage venture with these rather dazzling shoes! I can’t wait for them to arrive!

So gorgeous! I can wait to take these steppers out on the town. I have also been eyeing off some vintage fabric like these kitschy cute ones. But alas, I have a pretty huge collection of fabric already so I am going to try and use that up before buying any new material. I am even going to try and apply my resolution as much as I can to my burlesque costumes. I have a little plan for one coming up that will be make entirely from vintage treasures. Stay tuned my lovelies!
