massive flower & black

Some days ago I found this massive flower skirt in the same spot where I had found a similar dress months ago (which I transformed in a skirt, see it here). Second hand stalls at Sunday street market sometimes have this kind of hidden gems, don't you love a serendipious find when shopping second hand?.
Both pieces needed a new elastic waistband, which is an easy fix, so this time I've taken advantage of other people's lack of interest in repair/revamp. Obviously, I have mixed feelings because it makes me sad that people discard their clothes so quickly.

Hace unos días encontré esta falda con esta flor enorme, justo en el mismo sitio donde había encontrado un vestido parecidísimo hacía meses (el vestido se convirtió en una falda, ver aquí). Los puestos de ropa de segunda mano del mercadillo del domingo a veces ocultan este tipo de joyas ocultas y es la típica casualidad que aparece cuando compras ropa de segunda mano.
Ambas prendas necesitaban una nueva goma en la cintura, que es un arreglo facilísimo de hacer, así que esta vez me he beneficiado de la falta de interés de alguien en la costura. Evidentemente, también me parece triste que la gente descarte la ropa tan rápido, siendo tan fácil de arreglar, así que este tipo de hallazgos me produce sentimientos ambivalentes.
Enlazo al Lunes Visible Visible Monday y os deseo una semana muy visible y un verano libre de ropa de usar y tirar (#slowfashionseason)

  2. What a gorgeous print on that skirt!

    Enjoy your break.


  3. I love that massive flower print skirt , what a find!! Those trousers are cool as well (everything you wear is!)
    Enjoy your break! xxx

  4. How serendipitous that you found a skirt with a similar massive flower design. This one is very stylish, especially worn with that black top. I often have the same mixed feelings about the amount of clothing which is available second hand. Some people are so shallow! At least you're giving these clothes a second life, and a fabulous one at that! Enjoy your break Monica! Besos xxx

  5. I love your skirt and how beautifully the necklace echoes the colours in the skirt! The pantalons are also very groovy and colourful! I think pink and turquoise are your colours, Monica, you suit both of them so well. Have a lovely blogging break; I enjoyed mine. I will catch up with your posts over the next few days....


  6. That skirt is so wonderful.
    There's no shortage of used clothing where I'm at either, which does make me wonder who is buying it all to begin with.

  7. As a fan of wearing black, I love seeing you in the first outfit with that glorious print skirt.

  8. What a fabulous find this skirt is! I love the bold pattern and vivid colourway. Great styling as ever my dear! Hope you have a lovely break xxx
