Forget the iron! Let a spray bottle mister be your friend! Just mist and gently stretch! This is assuming you don't want a starched look and works best with 100% cotton. I suppose this is the same principle as a steamer only cheaper.
So many insights on this thread!
Claire, it is SO FUN to watch your style increase exponentially!!!!!!! Love your outfits and your finds!
Great epiphanies and fab outfits! You really have an eye for what suits you, Claire! I love how fearless you are combining outfits. So much color, pattern and fun. You are a thrifting inspriation--I finally took the plunge.
First off, I love your outfits and especially (but not only) the second one with the stripes and floral jacket.
Secondly, I love thrift epiphanies. I thrift or buy second hand most of my wardrobe and it is because I can often find better quality and better selection this way. Part of it is that I have expensive tastes but not a huge budget and I am far more likely to find something exciting second hand than in the mall. I am also fortunate because there are several excellent charity shops in my area and most of the other patrons are not looking for the same sorts of things that I am. At least not yet.
Thirdly, I hate to iron and wash and hang dry most of my clothes and then hope for the best. Just thought I would throw that in!
Great read as always Claire!
You make me want to have an epiphany! Someday, hopefully. Love all your outfits, but that 2nd outfit is exceptional! The floral jacket/cardi with the stripes, brilliant.
You look very "you" in these two looks...just colorized. [And it suits!]
Glad you are figuring out the strategies that work for your lifestyle along with your style!
Two more lovely looks - I really enjoy your WIWs. I love reading other people's epiphanies too, as I often find myself nodding along.
Claire! Hi! Sorry I missed this post!
I love these looks on you. And even better, I really enjoyed reading your epiphanies because they will lead to your style getting more YOU!
