Noir et Blanc…Black and White…its everlasting wonder will never cease.
The stark contrast is style personified and the simplest of routes to chic.
Icons from Katherine Hepburn to Keith Richards are privy to its power and Karl Lagerfeld wears nothing but.
What this mere style mortal knows however is that you don’t need a millionaire budget to create this bold impact.
My entire outfit hails from op shop and vintage haute
The necklace I made with my own two hands – it’s 4 second hand pieces upcycled into one knockout statement…inspired of course by the brilliant #dylanlex dames.
My advice: always treat thrifting like a normal shopping experience, be discerning and only select those pieces that reside at a certain level of style.
Great cuts, fine fabrics, delicious detail and items that are in it for the fashion long haul
Second hand never has to mean second best
