RESTYLE IN AMERSFOORT: RECYCLING AT IT´S BEST

Since I moved to Amersfoort I have been a regular client of “Kringloopcentrum Amersfoort”. I love to go through the clothes section and hunt for treasures. A lot of my outfits have pieces that I bought there. They looked like new and ready to have a longer life. When a sister shop of this Kringloopcentrum opened it’s doors last September, I was eager to check it out and see what they had to offer. I went there and learned more about their concept.

The shop is called “Restyle” and there you will find everything you need for your sewing addiction: Antique buttons, beautiful fabrics, yarns, jewelry, sewing books and patterns and more to perfect your sewing skills. Besides, you can find the nicest vintage clothes and bags. Lastly, you will find clothes from their house brand as well, which has been previously restyled. You can recognize them by the extra logo of a circle. The artist/designer behind this is Sally Pittman. She and a group of other people are constantly giving old clothes a new life.

The atelier where they work is on the second floor of Kringloopcentrum Amersfoort. Up there they are busy with recycling and finding ways to make old textiles into something new. Most of the time Sally makes bags, cooking aprons, pillowcases and more. All fabrics are unique and 100% from recycled materials.

Next time you go to the Kringloop take a look at this vintage initiative.
Restyle is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 13:00 to 17:00 o’clock. The address is Zwaaikom 29A in Amersfoort.

With love,

Thrifting Lover

 

I love to go thrifting because I never know what I might find. It is always an adventure. This time I found this amazing red, black and golden blazer/jacket. Normally I wouldn’t buy these kind of items, out of fear, not daring to wear it. But as soon as I saw it in the charity shop I fell in love with it and decided to give it a try. This jacket even reminded me of a ‘Michael Jackson kind of style’. I took it home and realized that it would be easier to combine it than I thought. I can wear it with a t-shirt, a blouse or a tank top. Going to secondhand shops is a good thing to help you to get out of your fashion comfort zone. Give it a try and show me your finds 😉
