This week my guest blogger is the fabulous Kate Moss.
Well, that’s not entirely true as she didn’t write this – but she has worn a dress that cost $5 so I am giving her an honorary mention.
Here’s a little compilation of some of her wonderful vintage, custom made and second hand outfits. It turns out Kate Middleton isn’t the only thrify Kate out there!
I hope it inspires you to head out into a charity shop and buy yourself a treat that also benefits the needy in your community!
This 1950’s yellow dress was reportedly $5 from the New York antiques area. Granted it’s paired with Manolos, but we’re still giving you props Kate.
From left to right:
* An incredible navy sequined dress that Kate wore to her 30th birthday. Of course she was sent dresses to wear from designers all over the world, but instead she opted for a vintage dress found in Alfie’s Antique Market, in good old London, on the day of the party! You can always count on the good karma and shopping thrill of second hand – buying on the high street is just too boring and easy!
* This is a vintage waistcoat and 70’s vintage handbag that Kate wore to Glastonbury. It revolutionised how people dressed at festivals and since then comfy jeans have been shunned for hot pants and fun loving fashion experimentation!
* Kate already had this 70’s Ossie Clark top but when she found the fabric to match she had Lee [Alexander] McQueen knock up some shorts to match. Now that’s good use of contacts! She wore the gorgeous, effortless and chic ensemble to Bobby and Gillespie’s wedding in 2006.
* The 2007 V&A Couture Gala has always been one of my favourite events to outfit surf the day after, and Kate certainly did it justice. This is a 1930’s silk Dior gown from a second hand shop in Berwick Street Market, London. Even more amazing, when Mario Testino stood on the train and ripped it she just made it into a short dress – we salute you Ms Moss!
