Still wearing....

I am not the sort of blogger that buys things solely for displaying on my blog. I haven't the funds or the mindset to pursue such a lavish lifestyle. So, I often find myself wearing garments that have appeared on my blog over and over again. To me at least, this is confirmation that these items were worth the pennies and proof that they have retained a certain stylishness that still appeals to me....

This jumper for example was purchased way back in  2011. It's still in good nick and I still love it because it has such a fab weight to it...oh and the colour! It's made an appearance once before when I visited the Hell Fire Club of 1746 | Here |

The necklace I made myself and is a version of one currently in my Stranger London Fushigi Shop | Here |.

The skirt I bought recently in a second hand shop for £5-£8 (cant quite recall). It's a good fit and I can see myself wearing it for a long time yet. 

My shoes are from Kate Kanzier of Leather Lane and they have trodden the dir'y London streets with me for years. The socks are from Tabio UK and these leggings were bought in Japan in 2010. 

And as for this leather jacket, it is much like an old friend now. It has been with me for 5/6 years and it seems to magically look better with each year that passes.

These photos were taken in my endz, in Hackney infront of a mash-up storage house type thing. I like these raggedy backgrounds.


  1. What lovely curls you have, Yasumi! I'm very much of the same mind that you are when it comes to buying clothes. For a short time I fell into the blogger lifestyle trap, but I quickly found myself with a lot of things I didn't really want and far more than I actually needed, which put an end to that. I wear my clothes over and over - as we all do in real life, so it only makes sense. Your thrifted skirt is such a gem... it looks very much like one I have hanging in my closet, just in a different colour :)

  2. I adore theis post. Title and all the pretty fancies you are wearing;-)

    1. Thank you my dear! It never fails to make me happy when you visit :)

  3. You look wonderful. I agree with you. All the stuff I post in my outfit posts are things I've had for years. I do buy new stuff - well vintage things, but only on occasion - if I get a good bargain that is ;) But, I like having things that I've had for years, they carry more stories and memories :)) You look wonderful x

  4. You look beautiful and I want that necklace!

  5. I love those leggings!!!!!! Your outfit looks FRESH x

  6. Always so cute! I love your hair! I feel the same way, I don't mind posting photos of myself in clothes I've worn countless times. There are too many favorites of mine that I can't let go.. and yes, let's face it, we all don't have the luxury of wearing new clothes ALL THE TIME. The trick is just to mix and match and who cares if you've worn it a million times. Your necklace is so pretty! I hope you post more outfit photos!

  7. I'm wearing all my clothes to death, really. What I wear daily is almost like uniform. If only I'm half as stylish as you :-) Lovely post!! P.S. Love that leather jacket.

  9. Beautiful pictures Yasumi, especially the last two! I agree with you (and your approach to blogging): clothes that can stand the test of trends and time are the best ones. And the leather jacket in particul becomes so much better with 'age'...Hope is all well! Caterina PS: I saw one of these pictures on Barbara's blog! http://fashionandotherfancies.blogspot.be/

  10. You have such a well defined style that I'm kind of jealous, I don't have any style at all. All the pieces in this outfit look really pretty on you and it's quite refreshing actually to find someone that isn't affraid to show clothes that aren't new, more power to you darling! <3 xx

  11. I love everything about this post -- the outfit, your hair and makeup ( looks so natural I can see your skin, done with a light hand, your eyes very undone -- but it's so beautiful). Utterly breathtaking.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
