Hey You !
A few weeks ago, Trends-Shaker.com, a Belgian website talking about trends in Belgium (food, fashion, design, etc…) contacted me. They challenged me to take part in a competition among other belgian instagramers/bloggers.
➜ We had 30 minutes to create a look with vintage clothes from the ‘Melting Pot Kilo vintage store’ in Brussels. We had to use from 3 to 5 kg of their clothes and maximum 2 of our own pieces.
After that, we did a little photoshoot and we had to post one picture on Instagram. The girl with the most likes wins and will receive 30kg of clothes !!
Please vote for me by liking the picture ➜ here 😀 !
This was my very first experience with vintage clothes and vintage shopping. To be honest, before that I never really thought about thrift shopping or vintage clothes. I thought they were only a thing for people with an interest in retro style, wanting to dress like in the 40s/50s etc..
and I was TOTALLY WRONG
As I was browsing through their clothes I realized most of the clothes were from the 90s/80s. I took my mom with me for this experience, she was my age in the 80s. As many of you I think, I have seen pictures of my parents when she was younger, and I always thought my mom’s style was so cool !
First of all, I was chocked over the fact that the woolen jumpers, despite the fact of having been worn, and being 30 years old, were still impeccable. They did not have bubbles on them (you know what I mean ?) and were a lot thicker than the ones we know today….
cough *Made In China* cough
I knew I wanted to wear a nice jacket. And when I saw this bright red bomber jacket, I couldn’t resist. I also found a bunch of amazingly tailored blazers (included one you’ll see here on another post 😉 ) and I decided to pair it with a suede skirt which is so in trend this year. Funny how you can be in trends in 2015 while vintage shopping ! The pieces that were mine were my converses and my beige jumper.
I highly recommend you to drop by this shop if you’re passing by in Brussels. They sell their clothes 15€/kilo it’s insane !!
