Lost And Found Under A Big Stack Of Denim

Jumpsuit - Secondhand Sass & Bide, Sweater - Country Road, Clogs - Funkis

This jumpsuit! Yesterday. Yay! Was so excited unearthing it that I have to share.

The first time it got "lost" was soon after it came home from the secondhand shop. I don't usually melt when I see something by Sass & Bide like the majority of girls living in Australia but I do love it when I see a piece of cute denim and it was going for cheap.

It had big 70s-style bell-bottoms for legs then (I should have taken a "before" picture!), something that I know I won't wear very often so it was put in the "To Be Altered" pile.

It stayed there for nearly two years, I think, until we were packing to move and was found again. I took it to our alteration specialist to have the legs straightened (it was the plan all along) and it came with us to the new flat only to be forgotten again - the built-ins in this flat have shelves so high that can be reached only if I use our Steppy. Out of sight, out of mind, I suppose.

Now that it's resurfaced, I'm not letting it out of my sight! So many fun ways to wear it. Woo!

I'm not a Sass & Bide girl either but I have to say I like what I see of the new stuff. These are good. Nice piece of tailoring you've done.

Hey Katie,
Didn't think you were too! I do buy the occasional not-too-Sass-&-Bide-looking pieces but I don't want to load my closet with them.

Oh, I didn't do the tailoring. Can't do denim! I sent it to the tailor near us. He's always been good with our stuff. xx
