Winter is in full force in my part of the world , it was a frosty , clear morning just perfect for a few quick shots in my garden in its Winter glory. My Ted Baker purple peplum jacket was just the thing to warm a chilly morning.I have had this jacket for several Winters now and love both its style and colour.Purple is not really a colour I wear often but every time I venture out in this jacket I receive kind compliments.
Wearing this outfit today made me reflect on an item I came across on Instagram recently about repeating the outfits you love and the impact this would have on our rampant consumerism and the need for something brand new for every occasion. I find I am buying very little retail these days , far preferring to find treasures at recycling stores and sometimes thrift shops or op shops as they are known here. Wearing the same outfits with different accessories to ring the changes has always been my way. I have never really been one that just has to have a new outfit for every occassion or season.
I have never felt the need for this to change since I began blogging either. Case in point the photo above was posted in June 2014, same jacket and skirt , different hat, shoes and necklace.
Once again repeated in Winter 2016 and Winter 2017 with different finishing touches and hair styles and colour.
On quite a different note I am in need of advice . I have been made aware that commenting on my blog has been troublesome for some of late and I am considering changing from blogger to WordPress. This is a little complicated as it would involve a slight name change for the blog from Grownupglamour (as one word) to Grownup-Glamour , not really sure if this is such a big deal.Also due to my total lack of any technical skills I would need to have this done for me. I guess I am weighing up the financial outlay too. Many thanks in advance for any advice.
The outfit consists of the Ted Baker Jacket, Jump skirt, sparkly belt, Fillies hat and booties by Brenda Zaro.
