Fresh lease with pins and patches




Being on trend or moving from one season to another isn't always about buying a lot of new things, I would love to buy every new thing in the market but it's not a great proposition after all, so sometimes buying a few trendy pieces and being creative with the outfits is all one needs for a fresh lease.

I have had the skirt (outfit), top, shoes and bag in this outfit for many years and have worn them many many times. Wearing them now and keeping it relevant and fun I decided to add trendy pins and patches to the top and wore a diy choker, if so I may call around the neck and my outfit was ready for Spring/summer 2016.

I got these pins and patches from Stradivarius and I am sure other retailers and online shops do have them in stock. They are very inexpensive and adding them to outfits is super easy. Pins u don't have to do anything and patches one can easily fix with double tape or can be sewn for a stronger hold. I used double tap so it can be easily removed and reused.




Adding red accessories to pastel/ neutral outfits gives them so much life and freshness, and considering they are everywhere I would say we all must get a red bag or shoes or earrings or even patches.






What I wore


Top- newlook (similar)
Skirt- Benetton ( similar)
Bag- accessorise (similar)
Shoes- Aldo (similar)
Patches- Stradivarius


Thanks for stopping by, see you in my next post

  18. It is always fun to create a new outfit altogether with some old and some new pieces. I like how you have added the color pop of red. These patches are so fun and add a quirky factor to your outfit which I like.
    Have a great rest of your week Chichi!

  19. I love this outfit and I completely agree with you - we don't always need to buy new clothes, instead we can use the clothes we already got and make them more interesting by adding small details, like you did for this look. xx

  37. Chichi, I couldn't agree with you more, girl! Although the idea of constant shopping and adding countless pieces into our wardrobe does indeed seem appealing, it's just not practical and we don't want to go broke, haha! I love your tips on mixing and matching, while adding few new pieces into the mix. I love those patches, they're so cute and trendy. I love the entire look, great styling, beautiful, and I hope you have an amazing weekend ahead!
