What’s Fashion Mashie all about?

Well for 2012 my creative project goal is to wear a new outfit from my wardrobe every day – no repeats! My friend Sam calls a song “mash-up” a “mashie” and I love that word to describe all the mixing and matching I’m going to be doing throughout the year with my clothes. I am lucky enough to be at the end of the hand-me-down line in my family so I have clothes that have been around for a very long time and some that I bought last week…I’m going to try not to buy any clothes in 2012 and make my focus really working with what I’ve got.

I hope that people will enjoy the variety and get inspiration, I’ll check out what’s in shops that’s similar if you love a look, and I especially hope that we can share ideas for mixing and matching outfits and realise that there are lots of outfits in all of our closets. Here’s to a creative and fun 2012 with a focus on making the most of what we’ve got … with a bit of refreshment when/if required.

  5. Just stooped by from As Time Goes Buy – I iwll certainly be back! Love the mashing- up of all the outfits!

  6. Tag! You’re it!
    from – If I offered to buy you any piece of fashion past or present, what would it be? And why?

    • Oh my goodness …what a way to start the day! Where would I start?
      Probably Grace Kelly’s wedding dress in High Society because I love those ballerina length dresses and anything 50s and I love that you can remove the little jacket and there is a beautiful sweetheart neckline strapless number underneath – since I was a little girl, I wanted to have a jecket for the ceremony and whipped it off and have a party dress underneath…very possibly inspired by this dress!
      If the fantasy budget allowed, another past favourite is from the movie Singing in the Rain when Gene Kelly has a dream sequence and meets Cyd Charisse in a slinky spider web backed dress – I always thought that would be a great Halloween party outfit!
      How about you?

      • I think the purple Jean Desses dress I wrote about is probably my dream dress…of course I would love to be skinny enough to wer the red Jessica Rabbit dress!
        But that ain’t gonna happen! 🙂

  7. I love your idea! To bad that I only discovered your blog when more of the half of 2012 has already passed. But I’ll follow, read and accompany you on your journey/experiment for the last days and steps!

    Greetings from Germany,

    • Hi Ina,
