Yes Jimmy Hendrix sang about it on Woodstock but I mean a total different purple haze! I’ve said before that I hardly ever buy anything in the first two months of the year. When I was still working I always hated the transition collections. Always so boring. And I’ve often had that I bought something new too quickly for the spring, and then it took a long time before I could wear it, due to the weather. And if I could finally wear it, I often didn’t like it anymore.
In love with purple haze, the shades that is….
But by the end of March it starts to itch me and I feel like buying new clothes. I love the spring collections the best! But I really can’t find anything! But really! What’s the matter with Zara, only the teens count there? And why is everything so basic at other stores. Not that I always wear those creative outfits, but I just don’t feel it. Since my hunger for shopping will have to be satisfied, I bought a lot of second-hand items. Great to browse those sites!
The best thing is that you can just search for what you have in mind and what you cannot find in the regular stores. And then I still have to search for a long time, but in the end I usually find what I have in mind! That never happens to me when I shop the regular shops online. For example, I was looking for a purple top to wear on this lilac skirt, which is pre loved too. And could not find a nice one at all. I didn’t know what kind of top I was looking for, but I did know the color it had to be.
Styling a pleated skirt with a ruffled blouse as a purple haze
And so I found this Gerard Darel blouse at Vinted. That is the site I browse a lot for my pre loved items. I like the kind a frumpy ruffles of the blouse. And of course a pleated skirt can be frumpy too. Can you imagine I wear this skirt and blouse with black pumps. Gosh no. So for a cooler and more modern look I opted for sneakers. With a very small lilac belt, a lilac ring and purple/pink statement earrings. Don’t you just love my purple haze!
