An old flame never dies Link Up









While I was organizing my closet the other day, I came across this lady's suit which I purchased 4 years ago after I graduated from university and needed an appropriate suit for my interviews. As  it is pretty conservative by its own I prepped it up with pink tights and my favourite fur vest. Taking the blazer off wearing a peplum belt and a shirt with leather panels make it so up to date and fashionable.
It's always so effective to invest in classic items as they still can be used in the far future and be mixed up with modern accessoires as I did with this costume. Houndstooth probably never gets out of style and exudes elegance and feminity. I am not a big fan of wearing a complete suit by itself but prefer using the blazer and wear it with another not matching skirt or pants and vice versa. That way outfits can be styled so versatile and appear in a new light.

Except of the fur vest, the peplum belt and the booties everything is older than < 4 years.

I am looking forward to what oldie you digged out of your closet and give renewed sparkle.
The link up series will be open till next sunday. Thank you so much!
