Fashion Salvage Returns

I really hate it when I have no time for blogging but sometimes life gets in the way. Things have now changed here in the UK since the EU referendum with the shock vote to leave still leaving me flabbergasted! We are now living in confusion as to what will happen but the truth of the matter is we soldier on and continue living our lives the best we can. That's all I have to say on the matter at this time.

Another big landmark for me was that I turned 40 years old this month. I'm not sure how I feel about it, I knew it was coming and I wasn't bothered, other people seem more shocked about it than I was. I'm just thinking 'yeah I am forty but that changes nothing, I still feel the same as I did a month, a year a decade ago, life just continues and hopefully gets even better!

On my 40th Birthday I thought about things I love doing and low and behold a BTR Fashion Salvage event was being held on my birthday! I dragged my friend Anne out at 9.30am on a Saturday morning and dived into the salvage bins at Bristol Textiles Recyclers. It's like rummaging through an old jumble sale, I love it, you never know what you will find.

I left with dresses, Levis, jumpsuits, retro sports items & a few crocheted blankets, all for 20 pounds!!! My friend & Fashion Salvage virgin Anne had claimed she was 'only coming to have a look, I wont buy anything' left with twice as much as me. Another happy Fashion Salvager I think!!

I promise to do a full on fashion salvage shoot and maybe I'll convince Anne to join me over the next few weeks. I am hoping to upcycle a few items before the shoot so a bit of time is needed! 
Here are a few photographs from the day and a couple of styled up fashion salvage items that I have already worn. 
Fashion Salvaging is the best!
