My almost cost nothing outfit

shirt &cardigan swapped     green pants thrifted & altered   bag diy    scarf &ring stradivarious

Although I didn't post every day this week I took photos of my outfits and I would post them if only my kids didn't delete them from the photo camera. I had already saved this one in my files so here it is my almost cost nothing outfit.
I made the bag out of fake leather and swapped or thrifted the rest. As it was a bit chilly this week I added the light scarf and the cotton cardigan.
After my rant about politics and financial situation in Greece it seems a bit stupid to just post an outfit but posting regularly has kept my spirits up during the difficult winter time.
It amazes me how simple ,superficial things can go hand in hand with deeper thoughts and a more profound way of life.
During my blogging time I have met many beautiful bloggers who do just the same. They post but also live meaningful lives. I've also come across bloggers who post outfits but give me a sense that this is all they do. maybe I'm wrong but these are the blogs Iskip. Have you ever felt this way?What's the amount of superficiality you can live with when visiting a blog?

  1. Lovely outfit - I like the colours in it :)

    I find that fashion is a good way to express thoughts and feeling outwardly. If I'm upset I'll gravitate towards darker colours and baggier silhouettes for example.

    Don't feel bad for not reading every blog you come across - there are so many blogs with so much variety you will always be able to find blogs that you enjoy :)

  2. Well, you have to have something to wear to the revolution! You can wrap the scarf around your face if the teargas comes out.

    I like the pants a lot. They're a little more high-waisted than what we usually see but I think it's a flattering look.

  3. I remember when you made that bag - it's such a great staple for any wardrobe. I do like a balance in my life between "superficial" and deep -- sometimes blogging is a little of each for me : > You look marvelous in your colors!

  4. I think blogging is a mixture of the meaningful and the ridiculous and the superficial - just like life really! And I like blogs which reflect all those sides of life. I know what you mean though, after a serious, heartfelt post on an important issue, it feels a little odd to say "here I am in a pretty frock"! But we can enjoy our clothes and our creativity, even in the bad times.
    I love your green trousers, and the scarf is beautiful. You made that bag? It's brilliant! xx

  5. Angie, great post! While I don't necessarily expect a blogger to bare her soul on her blog; I DO like to see more than just 24/7 shopping, partying, events, etc.... I just can't relate to that. I have found that there are some blogs that I look at just because I like the clothes and style....no other reason. But these are just a handful. The majority of the blogs I read are because I like seeing what the blogger has to say, I like her point of view or how she expresses herself. Which is why I really enjoy yours! You keep it real! You're positive, but not to the point of fake. Happy Mother's Day to you sweet friend! Hugs! ~Serene

  6. Love you green pants. I read blog that I know they are doing for fun or a hobby like me. I also read blogs that I know they are getting paid to do it. The paid to do it blog I don't comment on a lot.

  7. Oh, I like your look and the price! I think I know what you mean about bloggers who seem to be all surface and little depth, but I try to believe that all of us have more serious concerns in our lives and that blogging is actually an excellent way to cope.

  8. I love the green color of those slacks. The scarf and bag are great accents, too.

    Regarding your other topic, I'm of 2 minds about this. Like many of the others, I think that a "just fashion" blog is fine -- I'm interested in an escape. But if I think about it, I realize that the blogs I return to again and again are those that start out talking about fashion but end up talking about a little bit more. There's deeper meaning that creeps in around the edges, and I really like that. Fashion isn't just clothes. It's how we present ourselves to the world, and how we feel about that in any given moment. There's lots of potential for reflection there.
