Vavavoom Revamp Your Wardrobe


A whole new look and not a penny spent
This year I'm determined to buy less clothes and make the clothes I do buy really work for me. 
With this in mind I thought it would be interesting to put some looks together using items that have featured in previous outfit posts.Showing how by putting different things together along with some clever accessories you can create something new.

Its easy to lump a large part of your wardrobe into the spring/summer category but by adding leggings or a sweater they can also give you some extra outfit options in the winter months.Perfect if your clothes buying muscle is twitching but your funds are depleted.
2012 Matalan for 2013 style

I brought this yellow swing dress from Matalan last summer and absolutely love its daffodil colour. The mohair jumper with tiny sequins on is also by Matalan and has been an absolute lifesaver this weak as the temperatures  have plunged.

To make this dress work for winter Ive teamed it with black tights and some blue converse pumps. My ring is my favourite pink skull by Belinda's prettys and my lipstick brooch is by the sadly defunct diamonds and daggers.

The sharp eyed amongst you may have also noticed that Ive changed my hair slightly. I went to Toni and Guy in Heswall and decided I needed a revamp. I admit I was unsure about the idea of a "dip dye" as the ombre has been sort of overdone in my opinion but I'm quite liking it now, its nice to have a change.Ive put it in a quiff to show off the lovely fresh blonde streak.


Getting used to my new "do"

My eyeshadow is shades Exspresso, Kid, Mylar and Brun by Mac and my lipstick is the new Velvetine suedeberry shade by Limecrime which I will be reviewing later this week.



The only new thing in this post is my lovely new Alexandra McQueen "homage" bag which was a birthday present from my mum. Its the perfect size for all my junk and the leather is as soft as butter.Thanks Mama

I'm sure we are all feeling the pinch this month so its the perfect time to scan our wardrobes and see what fresh new looks we can create from existing favourites. Its stylish, its eco friendly and its free-perfect when payday seems such a long way away.

No funds required!

  1. I find it hard to believe that you will buy less clothes, just because you love them so much and wont be able to resist! Good luck on your quest! I like the 'Betty's been shopping' blogs the best, but I guess, less shopping doesn't mean no shopping!

  2. Great Betty/Bettes think alike! I'm rather shoddy at updating my own blog, but I noticed that 2 of my 3 most recent posts are on the theme of 'remixing' clothes for different seasons!

    Also, your blonde bit looks FANTASTIC in a quiff!
