Storkower Straße, Berlin
What my dream wardrobe would look like? It would be full of a small selection of favourites that can be combined with one another. Most of it should be me-made and the rest would be sustainable so that I won’t need to have a bad conscience when wearing it. To make sure that everything goes with each other, I’m adding more and more simple and timeless pieces to my wardrobe preferably in plain colours. The black culottes that I’m showing you today fit right into this pattern and I wear them quite often as they can be worn in numerous ways. I have used the same pattern for them as for my light pink version, which unfortunately does not get worn very much as the colour does not fit my wardrobe anymore that is becoming more and more timeless and neutral in colour. Even though I’m trying to stick to mainly slow fashion, it is still impossible to ignore current fashion trends and the influence from Instagram, Pinterest & their likes. Second hand fashion is a sustainable and cost-effective alternative for me. Unfortunately, there are still many prevailing prejudices when it comes to 2nd hand fashion. It’s still often seen as dusty, totally old-fashioned and smelly. I hope that I can prove the opposite with today’s outfit because it is certainly possible to find even the latest trends 2nd hand. Following last year’s leopard prints, snakeskin is the animal print of the season. I found my booties with snakeskin cheaply at Kleiderkreisel, which is the German version of Poshmark. In my opinion they turn this rather simple outfit from boring to fashionable. What would your dream wardrobe look like?
