In the early 90’s (& beyond) I was heavily into the whole grunge style scene & that alternative trend has stuck with me throughout the years. To this day most of my daily ensembles still consist of chunky-clunky-comfy boots paired with boldly patterned vintage dresses & cool tights (although nowadays I don’t tend to shred my legwear as I did in my younger years).
Total outfit cost: €5
I love the floaty romantic style and phenomenal fabrics of traditional Indian fashion and as a lassie was always thrilled when my friend’s mom allowed us to play dress-up with her gorgeous collection of saris, so you can imagine my delight when I discovered this incredible Handmade-in-India tunic dress at my local thrift shop…on €1 day!
Total outfit cost: €4
I’ve always loved goth style (+ the music that goes along with it)!
Total outfit cost: €4.20
The year was 1987 and I was a lass of 14 when I first saw the film that would time & again help me through the cruelty of high school. Pretty in Pink became my relatable escape from a world that let me know, every single day, not only did I not fit in but I was most certainly not welcome…how I wish I could go back in time & let that 14 year old know that her future holds so many incredible adventures and her quirky uniqueness that is so uncool in the microcosm of high school will soon be leading her all over the world…
Total outfit cost: €3.20
Admiring my vast collection of vintage cocktail attire is one of my favourite guilty pleasures in life. I have a delightful dress for nearly any event that might crop up…but until the glamorous invites start pouring in I’m satisfied to simply play dress-up, enjoy the feel of the funky fabrics & marvel at the workmanship of these fabulous frocks from the past.
Total cost for ALL outfits: €21
