Don’t I look like Alice from Alice in Wonderland? That’s how I feel with this cute little dress and pearls. Sorry I didn’t tag the pearls, these are all super old and I can’t even begin to think of where they are all from. And, pearls are extremely easy to find. Anyways, I highly doubt Alice wore converse, I think she had on Keds. I have a TON of stuff in my closet that I don’t wear nearly enough. With that being said, I decided to bring them back to life and almost ‘reinvent them’. So I’m apologizing ahead of time because most of these items are extremely old and probably aren’t online or in store anymore. But no fear, I’ll tag similar options that you can buy and will love, promise. When I ‘don’t have anything to wear’, my first instinct is to buy something new. My new thing is to shop in my closet and figure out a way to make it look new. I don’t know if I’m failing or succeeding at this, so I’ll let you guys be the judge.
This dress – so old. You know it’s old because it’s from Abercrombie & Fitch. Not at all implying that’s a bad thing, I just don’t shop there as often as I used to. BUT, they still have great stuff and have kind of re-branded themselves so their clothes don’t scream I’m as preppy as they come. Anyways, I used to work at Abercrombie back in the day (don’t judge). When I did, I had the privilege of “modeling” (haha) in front of the store during holidays for a few hours. During these hours, I was judged hardcore, mainly by the moms – it was quite entertaining. Nevertheless, I actually still really like this dress although I’ve had it since high school. Don’t ask me how I still fit in my high school clothes, because I don’t know either. But one of the perks of doing this little side hustle was scoring free clothes .
Ok, I’m done rambling. I am really saying all of this to reiterate that you don’t have to always buy new clothes. My new thing is only buying new items when it’s for an event like a wedding or something. You should try it! Your wallet and closet will thank you.
