There She Goes Again

There are some ladies (and gents) in this world that seem to spend on an item of clothing, wear it once, and never touch it again. I can understand if it is a wedding dress, or something of the like for a one-off special occasion, or even if a certain bad experience deters one from wearing due to superstition, but I am most certainly not one of those people. I am not afraid of wearing something twice, or even outfit repeating. If I like something, of course I am going to want to wear it again and have fun mixing and matching it with different things in different ways. So when I see my favourite ladies (and gents) from my favourite decade wearing something from their closet again it puts a little smile on my face. 

This new posting series, similar to my "Seeing Double" series, will just include quick little posts of famous faces here and there from the 1960's wearing an item of clothing of theirs again in a different way at a different time. Just something quick, simple and fun. I hope you like my "There She Goes Again" series. 

First up we have Marianne Faithfull and her completely gorgeous pair of silver Bally shoes with cross-over ankle straps. These are some really snazzy shoes and in my eyes would be perfect to wear to a dance party back in the sixties. If I had to choose a modern day equivalent to these lovelies I would choose ASOS Smithie Heels, and me being me would cross the straps over just so they look more closely like Marianne's Bally shoes here. You can purchase a pair of ASOS Smithie Heels here. They are currently on sale too!

  2. I wear the same outfits constantly so it's nice to see well known people doing the same. I just love Marianne's shoes, they're so cute! x

    1. Oh wow, the purple are so pretty too and how strange that you cross the straps over too!

  4. So true, what's the point of buying something if you're only going to wear it once! Good for Marianne Faithfull,l for wearing the same shoes more than once. And they're lovely, dainty shoes :)

    1. Aren't they? I must say you have quite an amazing shoe collection, I've always thought that! It's good to have your favourites and staples in a wardrobe I think.

  6. Oh yes I certainly wear the same things over and over too. There's so many silver shoes in this style on the high street in the UK at the moment, I was actually looking at a pair almost identical to Marianne's only today but unfortunately they were 5 whole sizes too big!

    1. It's nice to know that others do. I can't stand it when people put others down for something that is so logical and shouldn't matter to them anyway. Yes, silver shoes seems to be everywhere at the moment over here too. Wow, I would love to have seen them, but fancy that - five sizes to big, goodness!

  7. The concept behind this series it brilliant! I can't wait to see more. I never would have noticed Marianne was wearing the same shoes in all these photos.

    I'm all for finding something good and wearing it over and over until it wears out. :-)

  8. This is a great post! I love how you write. Unfortunately I m quite this kind of person, who shoots an outfit and then has some doubts about wearing it again. But hopefully I do have my favorite items in which case this doesn't apply at all ;)
    Xoxo,

    1. Thank you very much! I hope that you did not feel that this post was in anyway a put down towards other men and woman that do not 'outfit repeat'. If that is what works for a person, and they are happy and comfortable with it then that is brilliant! My intended meaning at the beginning of this post was to simply communicate that I myself am not a person who does that. I do not mean it as if I am better or worse than anybody else, it's just me and what I like :) And so my point is, do and wear what you like lovely and don't let anything make you feel otherwise, as long as you are happy that is all that matters! I will also take this opportunity to say how much I love your style!
      Have a lovely week ahead!

  9. I'm with you! I have many favorite outfits that I wear again and again, and love it as much as the first time I wore it. I think this is such a neat idea for a series!

  10. That's one great thing about wearing vintage- it's easier to wear over and over again and look fabulous rather than following modern fashion and constantly feeling like you have to update and keep up. I really love those gold shoes. Marianne looks fantastic in all of those outfits!

    1. That is a very good point that you have brought up. When wearing vintage there is an immense less amount of pressure in that sense I imagine. And doesn't she? I love the middle outfit with the feathers most.
