I was approached by my journalist friend Anna Maria Brostrom a little while back to do some features on Made In Shoreditch Magazine with my fashion tips. I was more then happy to get involved in this and my first feature was "5 must haves in your wardrobe" according to me.
Anna Maria came to my house and I showed her my room where all my creative things, sewing and DIY business happens. We wanted a shot where my love for clothes would be shown, above you can see one part of my wardrobe, yeah you heard; ONE PART! I also have a rail and loads of suitcases in my basement.... Im always that woman that says: " I don't have any clothes!" But really, I have quite a lot I just want new ones all the time ( greedy much?! ) haha! There is a word for that actually...hmmm... Ah yes, SHOPOHOLIC!
Below you can see what 5 things I think Is a good investment for your wardrobe. Enjoy!
Stay tuned for more fashion tips on Made In Shoreditch by yours truly...
The Hat, get the rimmed hat from H&M.
-A hat is always stylish and warm as well. I think that a hat really sets the touch to an outfit. It is definitely a thing you should have in your wardrobe. Some may not be comfortable wearing a hat but it’s a good way to cover a bad hair day.
The Leather Jacket, get this one is from H&M.
-A leather jacket is a must have, a good investment and a basic piece in your wardrobe. I prefer edgy biker jackets. A standard black leather jacket works with everything and it looks really clean.
The Furcollar, get this one on Ebay
-It’s all about the fur baby! This is a vintage fur collar that I matched with a light weight jacket to make it warmer. It puts a touch of luxury to your outfit and it is removable, so I’m wearing it to almost all of my jackets.
The Glasses, buy these on Ebay
-Sunglasses is something that everyone should invest in. I have a thing for sunglasses/glasses and these red 70’s ones are a good break-up to my usual urban look. I like them big and massive, a statement.
The Boots, shop these on Beyond Retro
-These boots are also vintage. I rarely wear high heel shoes and since I wear a lot of street wear, I like to break it off with this chunky heel type of look. They are comfortable but I still feel more dressed up than with just trainers.
