Hey everyone, we hope you are all keeping well and following the #STAYIN rules.
We hope we can keep inspiring fashion up-cycling and recycling, even in the comfort of our homes. During these weeks of isolation we decided to make a: Quarantine TODO list – Koo Style Edition.
1. Self pamper
We spend so much time going to work, doing errands, running around. We have been blessed with the opportunity to #stayin while we fight this COVID19. Let this be an opportunity to get in touch with yourself and loved ones. Treat yourself wherever possible. A bath, face mask, good food, ordering online.
Try and keep a routine similar to your usual life. It is easier said than done but there are many online workouts flying around while we isolate. Yoga, Dance, Boxing, Pilates, Squats, Drills, Zumba, so much is available.
If exercise is not for you, don’t forget to take an isolated walk outside to keep body and mental health happy.
3. Spring Clean
It says it all in the name. We have all been given the benefit of TIME and being forced to stay at home. Now is the time to empty that storage cupboard, clean that top shelf, and chuck all those things etc. This is the time for the clean.
4. Learn a new skill
This really is that time to try something new. Whether you have been delaying picking up that piano. Or learning that language, or starting that online course.
Repeat after us: Now is the time!
Of course we are biased, we would love to steer you in the direction of fashion related skills. Sewing - we all have that random tin filled with threads, needles, buttons and other bits. Find that tin and see what you can do.
- Can you embroider a word?
- Can you sew on a button? Start small, start simple.
- Create any challenge or head online for ideas
If you have the luck to also have a sewing machine in the home, YOUTUBE is your friend. Set up the machine and get creating...
5. Clear your clothes cupboard
Make two piles. The "I like it but it needs some life" and the "definitely never going to wear that again"
- Can the garment be improved?
- Can it be saved?
- What is missing from it?
- Can I paint onto it?
Then you can use your new skill (point 4) to make the change. YAY
6. When all else fails... Online Shop
Whether it's grocery shopping or fashion shopping, many companies are encouraging online shopping. Many physical stores are closed due to covid19. However many online stores are still open and accepting orders... including us: www.koostyle.co.uk
With delays in dispatch date, we are aiming to dispatch all orders as soon as possible.
Whatever you do, tag us or use the hashtag #koostyle for all the fun things you are doing over the quarantine period and we would love to interact and share your content.
Stay safe and take care,
Koo Style Team
