turquoise galore

I've been wearing a lot this pair of pants, they're a wash'n'go dream, versatile and fresh!. They had to be fitted and I removed the pockets, which added bulk, being totally useless. These pants came from the second-hand pile at the sunday flea market, but, for 3€, I was happy to take them home and make a little sewing job on them.
I think that I tried and left them at the store (a year ago?), because of their unflattering shape. I don't care too much about proper fitting when buying second-hand, but I'm quite fussy when I'm paying the whole price at a store!. Does the same thing happen to you? and, Don't you hate useless pockets?

Me he estado poniendo un montón estos pantalones, son una maravilla de lavar y poner, versátiles y frescos. Tuve que ajustarlos y tuve que quitarles los bolsillos, que abultaban y eran totalmente inútiles. Estos pantalones vinieron del montón de ropa de segunda mano del mercadillo de los domingos, pero, por 3€, me pareció bien llevármelos a casa y hacerles un poco de arreglo.
Creo que me los había probado y dejado en una tienda como hace un año, precisamente por esa silueta tan poco favorecedora. No me preocupo demasiado de que la ropa me quede perfecta cuando compro de segunda mano, pero soy bastante quisquillosa si estoy pagando el precio entero en tienda!. ¿También os pasa lo mismo? y ¿No odiáis esos bolsillos ridículos que no sirven para nada?

  1. They perfectly match your new tunic! Lovely. Xo Jazzy Jack

  2. Love your monochromatic outfit, all different shades of blue complement each other beautifully

  3. Beautiful! Blue is my favorite color, so you can't go wrong with these pieces.

  4. Yes, the same thing for me - if it's not on discount, I am much more picky. Discount gives me more "creativity" in fit. I have never removed useless pocket. Usually I LOVE them, but in some things they are, as you say, useless. Now I shall definitely think about it. Fantastic turquoise and blue outfits!

  5. I've said it before, but you are looking fabulous in turquoise. I am so in love with your typewriter brooch! Besos xxx

  6. Great idea to remove the pockets, much as i love them on a skirt on trousers they're not good!
    Gorgeous in turquoise and I'm swooning over the typewriter! xxx

  7. Joyful!! I think you've done well with your thrifted trousers! I now use the same "rule" for thrifting as for regular shopping - I only buy what I love. Too much stuff otherwise (and I don't seem to be interested in sewing/altering).

    Love both outfits, as always whimsical details and lots of fun! I especially love your pins this time, that typewriter is a dream!

  8. I love these blues and turquoise outfits Monica. The trousers look fab - well done you for fixing them. It's great to sort our these little problems which might stop you getting the wear out of them. The turquoise gingham top is adorable and all the more so because you made it. My sewing is pretty basic, but I'm still keen to learn and improve my skills. I recently made some cushion covers for my son and feel pretty pleased with them!

  9. I adore your handmade gingham top! And those super fun brooches. You are so wonderfully creative and it really shows in how you dress.

    I'm a freak that LOVES pockets. I often don't take a handbag with me and prefer to use pockets because I have fibromyalgia. So I've added pockets to dresses before. I agree though, on pants they can add bulk.


  10. I love this beautiful turquoise galore outfit! I especially love your bag and the brooches. I can't believe you made them yourself! They are fantastic!

  11. OMG I love the gingham tunic you made. It's such a lovely shape and it goes really well with the trousers!

  12. I love all these colours - I totally love your typewriter and map brooches. Such creativity!
