I’ve been wearing some form of this outfit quite frequently of late; collared shirt under a pullover, skirt, boots, and always, always this coat. For a long time now I’ve had an affinity to patterned, collared shirts underneath a solid pullover – it’s simple but smart and adds a bit of interest to an otherwise plain outfit, so I always seem to come back to it in the colder months. Aside from loving the combination, I’ve actually just felt quite lazy with dressing lately. It could be that I have grown a bit tired of my wardrobe – it’s been awhile since I have purchased something new – but it could also be due in part to spending about a month and half rotating between only a few outfits, forgetting what clothes I actually own and not exercising my creative mind in that department. Whatever the reason, I’m looking to remedy it. Putting outfits together has always been a passion of mine, since I was a wee one, before I even really understood one could love something like that, so I cannot imagine a life uneffected by clothing. I’ve been feeling a bit of a disconnect between myself and some of my clothes, so I’ve been toying with the idea of starting an insta shop and selling some things I would not be able to sell over etsy (also probably vintage that is long overdue to be listed), and giving the clothes I no longer feel a connection to a new lease on life.
What do you guys think? Do you ever purchase clothes from insta? Do you sell on insta?
