Reuse, Remix, and Recreate

I know you may be thinking "why is Ali wearing this black faux fur vest AGAIN?" See the way my closet is set up, I reuse, remix, and recreate looks using the same pieces over and over. I'm the first to admit I'm no baller (although I will be…the power of positive thinking is real you should try it). So I have to make my closet stretch long and wide. But I have a secret. Come close so I can share it with you. I'm not apologetic about it at all. I buy my clothes to wear them and I make sure I get the best bang for my buck. I don't buy clothes to sit in my closet and look pretty. I continue to wear clothes that I purchase. Case and point this vest that I love was purchased at least 3 years ago (it could be more) and I've pulled it out every Fall/Winter for the last few years. The moral of this blog post is don't be afraid to re-wear what you buy. The key is switching up the piece to make it look brand new which comes form your styling effort. 

Outfit Details: Faux Fur Vest (Forever 21), Blouse (Forever 21), Skirt (Vintage), Boots (TJ Maxx), Clutch (Target)

What are your thoughts on re-wearing items in your closet? Do you mind wearing them over and over or do you feel ashamed of wearing it continuously? Let me know in the comment section below.

I hope you have a great productive day!

  1. LOL @ "But I have a secret. Come close so I can share it with you." ... Umm... Stranger Danger! JK :)

    I am not a fashionista so I have the same outfits that I always were... but sometimes I am hit with an epiphany and I realize that a certain blouse goes great with these different pair of jeans and tada... a new outfit. Or I see a shirt that I haven't worn in years and try it on and remember why I loved it initially and then start wearing it regularly again. I am like you, reuse! But I don't have that much to work with.
