No Shopping Required!

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I am really bad at buying items and only wearing them in one particular outfit.  Also, how many times do you buy something new that looks like something you already own?   So I thought enough is enough I am going to do a little "shopping" in my very own closet.  So last night I came up with 5 new outfits in just 20 minutes.

So I started with this skirt which I bought on 
clearance at Banana Republic about 3 years ago.
A) Nine West - bought at an outlet on "sale" about a year ago.
B) Ann Taylor Loft - bought on clearance about a year ago.
C) Worthington - bought on clearance at JCPenneys about 3 year ago. 

This is a great Monday outfit because with minimal 
effort it is a cute and polished office outfit.
A) Ann Taylor Loft embellished tank- I bought this as part of my "looking at rings outfit" I have never worn it without the sweater I bought for that outfit and since it is warm out needed a new way to wear it.  
B) Kristen Davis Shrug - I bought it at Belks on clearance about 2 years ago. 
C) Guess - bought at a Guess outlet on clearance about 3 years ago.
D) Xhilaration @ Target - I bought these shoes on clearance about 4 years ago.
A) Merona by Target - this scoop neck tshirt almost made
 it in that give away pile because it is too big but I thought perhaps paring
 it with something else would make it  work and here's what I came up with. 
I purchased this shirt recently without trying it on  because I have this shirt in 
other colors and figured it would fit.  Never buy stuff without trying it on!!!
B) Merona by Target - I bought this embellished
 tank on clearance last winter to spruce up boring sweaters.  
C) Chanel tote - I love this bag.  It is FAKE!  
$10 at the flea market!  I know...HORRIBLE!
D) Steve Madden - I love these shoes I have had them
 for about 5 years.  I bought them on clearance at Belks.

A) Kristen Davis shrug - I bought this on clearance at Belk about 2 years ago.
B) Banana Republic embellished tank - I bought this on clearance last winter.
It almost made it in the give away pile until I remembered this shrug.
C) Patent Leather peep toe wedges - I recently bought these at Ross for $8.
D) Guess - I wanted this bag for the longest time and 
I got it on clearance at Belk about 3 years for $40 ($200 originally).
A) Kohl's embellished top - I bought this at Kohl's about 2 years ago.
B) Nine West - I bought this purse at TJMaxx about 3 years ago for $10.
C) Mossimo @ Target - I recently bought these 
flats as my summer office friendly sandles.

This is a great Friday outfit because like Monday you can just throw
 it on for a great cute polished Friday look without a lot of effort 
and on Friday the last thing you want to think of is what to wear just want the weekend to start already.

So take my advice, "shop" your closet ~ 
you have great stuff in there waiting to be worn!
