Closet Confidential Tag

Not long ago I stumbled across the Closet Confidential Tag by Fleur de Force and I loved the idea of seeing what other people have in their wardrobes so I decided to do this tag myself!

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?

I don't have many really old items in my wardrobe because firstly, my body has changed quite significantly in the last few years and secondly my style has changed completely. In college I was very preppy and only wore skirts and dresses with heels- I even owned a cape! During my gap year I then started riding motorbikes and just generally changing a lot and that's how my new style evolved. However, before I even went to boarding school (so I must have been younger than 15) I was obsessed with Harley Davidsons and I got this Harley Davidson tshirt. I love how it actually looks very feminine but when you look closely you realise that it's a Harley tshirt- I still wear it on a regular basis.

2. What is the newest item?

The newest item in my closet is this dress from Primark that I got during the Christmas holidays. It was £7 down from £19 and I really like it because it's a thin denim material but has the leather detailing in the sleeves, which I think makes it quite unique. It's also really comfy and easy to wear so a great purchase!

3. What is the most expensive item?

This is a bit of a cheat because most of my investment pieces (boots and coats) are around the same price so it was hard to choose, but accessories count, right? I bought my Michael Kors watch with the money that I made from my first ever paid job (packing and stacking boxes in a warehouse- I live a glamorous life) and I haven't looked back. I hadn't worn a watch for years but it's so handy to have one! I chose a chunky one that looks a bit like a men's watch and is gold, silver and rose gold so it goes with any jewellery. It's definitely a great investment piece, I currently have no desire to buy another watch and I'm sure I will wear it for years.

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item? (that you wear/use a lot!)

I wear a lot of cheap clothing but I'd say the cheapest item that I wear a lot was probably this grey jumper from New Yorker. I think it was around 10 Euros and I bought it on a whim and have been wearing it so much since (a little too much sometimes). It's oversized and I mostly wear it off the shoulder and I think it's really flattering actually. I wear this with jeans, over skirts or dresses, with leggings, with tracksuit bottoms, I wear this to sleep when it's cold! It's the perfect comfy jumper that still looks nice and can be dressed up easily. Definitely an amazing find!

5. What was the biggest bargain?

I'm pretty sure that this maroon leather jacket from Orsay is the biggest bargain I ever made. I spotted it on the sale rack a few years ago but it didn't have a price tag on it and when I got it scanned by a shop assistant it turned out that it was 10 Euros instead of 100! It's a size too big for me but that doesn't bother me too much and who can say no to a real leather jacket for 10 Euros?

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!

The biggest waste of money were definitely my Sam Edelman Lorissa shoes... I love them so much but they're half a size too small and I don't really have many occasions to wear them... I'm always scared the gems and spikes will fall off! They look great as decoration though.

BONUS QUESTION - Show us your three favourite items right now!

Faux fur snood

I got this from my friend Tom (yes, a guy picked this out- mind:blown) for Christmas because I was going skiing and I wore it every single day on the trip. Unfortunately it doesn't go with either of my coats but I think it looks awesome with my leather jacket and keeps me so warm. It just makes everything look a little more glamorous! Unless you decide to take a picture of it without makeup on. Don't do that. Eyebrows... *shiver*

Grey H&M T-Shirt

This is actually a really recent purchase as well, I saw it in H&M over the Christmas holidays when I was looking for something to wear on New Year's and I fell in love with it. It was only 10 Euros and it's such a nice material, it falls really nicely so even though it's baggy it doesn't make you look shapeless. I've been getting really into more baggy clothing and this is my favourite new baggy addition to my wardrobe- I love how it's so simple but it has the mesh inserts that make it look much more interesting. And yes I'm aware it has stains on it but I only noticed when I looked through the pictures...

Batman T-Shirt
I got this shirt from Primark in the summer and I absolutely love it, it's so comfortable but I think it looks really cool because let's face it, everyone loves Batman. It's really easy to wear, I like to just throw this on with some black jeans, boots and a leather jacket and I'm out the door- simples.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I tag all of you to do it too! Link your blogposts or YouTube videos in the comments below so I can have a sneaky look into your wardrobe...
