Today’s Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge was a good excuse to go fossicking through the depths of my wardrobe – it was the “I’d forgotten I had this!” challenge! A chance to drag those long-forgotten items of clothing out of the depths of your wardrobe and back into the light of day.
It turns out I’ve got quite a few things in my wardrobe that haven’t seen the light of day for quite some time, so I’m contemplating doing this challenge every day for the next week….!
Skirt: Yellow ‘fantail’ skirt by NZ designer Blanchett (which is a label that sadly doesn’t exist any more). This used to be one of my favourite skirts back when I was in university and was one of the first ‘designer’ items I ever bought – I fell in love with the colour and the back of it! It was quite exciting to drag it out of the depths of my wardrobe and find that I can fit into it again – I haven’t been able to do it up for the past 9 years, and now I can, yay!
Top: Plum merino short-sleeved top, made by me. Gets a lot of wear over autumn/winter, so not a long-forgotten item, I’m afraid
Cardigan: I’d completely forgotten I had this, and only found it buried in a drawer this morning! It’s a merino knit wrap cardigan from NZ label ‘Episode’. I think I picked it up in an op-shop somewhere a while back….?
Tights: Grey fishnets which probably haven’t been worn for a good year or two
I love the details on the back of this skirt – it’s all tulle in the same colour at the main part of the skirt, all draped and with another layer of tulle over the top to hold it in place. It’s a bit fan-like, and it’s at the back like a tail, which I’m guessing is why it was called after one of our native birds, the Fantail. 🙂
Next Wednesday’s Wardrobe Challenge is a colour based one – purple! Go on, join in!
