STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - REPURPOSING MY WARDROBE

It is quite apparent that buying and shopping are a blogger's favorite activity. It is pretty easy to hit the 'place your order' button or simply head out to a store and shop. Admittedly, I have been there  where I would just go out and buy stuff right before my biweekly photoshoots or for every event I was attending. That sure gave me pleasure upfront but post-event I was stuck with clothing that either I did not know how to wear again or there was simply no room for that in my overflowing closet. That became stressful over time. It was then that I decided 'I would refrain the temptation of buying and put my sartorial skills to test.' Result this outfit- the jacket is good eight years old, the skirt was bought last September and has been worn a few times, my favorite one being this, and the bodysuit was a gift. 

Honestly, I did enjoy the brainstorming and the rummaging through bins and shelves. There were pieces that still had tags attached, or had been sitting in the bin labeled 'mend me' for God knows how long. I was reunited with so many amazing pieces that I had forgotten about. This self-imposed wardrobe-repurpose challenge surely made me realize how much potential my existing closet had. I've decided to take some time off to mend all those loose buttons and rehem all those frayed hems. I would try and spare some time over the weekend to plan my outfit for the entire following week. It will be a long road, I know I can do it and if I succeed- I will give myself a shoutout right here.

  4. Fabulous skirt. I'm trying to buy less - but I'm not very good at it. However, I do wear everything I own until I wear it through (and my daughter is helping!) xx Maria
