Thrifting in Tallinn – Lingerie and Ripped Jeans



This is my final outfit from the GetRedressed collaboration – find out more about their exciting upcycling, recycling and repurposing work at or on their instagram account.




This day was a little bit cooler in Tallinn so I went for light wash loose jeans. I bought these at the Jaam Balti flea market (Tallinn) for 50 cents and then hand distressed them myself with whatever random kitchen implements I could find in my boyfriends apartment. I’ll do a full tutorial soon on how to distress jeans as I was really surprised and how easy and effective it was!




I paired the jeans with a sexy but dressed down silk nightie that I got for 2.50€ in the Humana charity shop. I loved the rich navy colour mixed with the delicate lace, and was inspired by how many other bloggers and celebrities have been wearing nighties as dresses! To avoid going too overboard I tucked it into my jeans as a top…. but if I’m feeling brave soon I might wear it as a dress!




I really went for the fun random mix vibe in this look and added my ‘new’ Snoopy sweatshirt as a touch of colour and humour. I was really determined that the nightie wouldn’t be sexy or slutty so thought torn jeans, trainers and a snoopy jumper would certainly take (almost) all the sex appeal out! I felt very cool and casual all day, but still lovely and silky and luxurious. Perfect!

What do you think? Would you dare to distress your own jeans? And would you be seen outside of your bedroom in just a silk nightie?? Would love your thoughts!
