Something Old, Something New


Sweater: Old
Cami: Forever 21 (unknown)
Jeans: Lei (Old)
Boots: Target Xhilaration Karassa Slouchy Heeled Boots - Cognac (29.99)
Bag: from China (approx 35$)

Sometimes, you just look like a creepy stalker. I don't know why I have such large dark circles in this picture. But hey, this is the best picture out of the bunch. 

The sweater in this picture is one of the things that I just can't throw away. I don't even remember when my mom brought it for me. Middle school? I remember that first, I wore it because I had no idea what looked good. Then I stopped wearing it at all costs. Then, one day, I didn't do my laundry and I wore it again--only to realize that it was incredibly short. Then I discovered layering and ... I wear it again now. 

This is why I have clothes from FOREVER ago. I keep thinking that I'll do something amazing with it in the future.  

What is your clothing turnover ratio?

  1. I have sooo many clothes that I can't just throw out... sometimes I'll even go as far as putting them in a bag to be taken to goodwill, but I just leave the bag at my parents' house and when I come back to visit a few months later I find things in there that I decide to start wearing again.. it's ridiculous. So I definitely feel ya about the middle school sweater! haha :)

  3. Sweater + boots + bag = super cute! I have a horrible turnover rate - I still have high school stuff in my closet (but I'm much older than you LOL).

  6. Ah, good question. I used to dress very plainly (t-shirts mostly) and kept things till they fell apart. A couple of years ago I got tired of my non-style and started replacing almost my entire wardrobe with better clothes. Now I'm getting tired of some of the new things and trying to decide should I keep them or not? I probably should keep. I like your sweater!

  7. i'm totally like that with my clothes!! Also, cause i always make sure to buy staple pieces that I know have a lifespan of at least 2-3 years (or at least i try to)

  10. I have a couple of T-shirt from junior high that I still wear. I can still fit into them. And I'm 22 years old.
    P.S. I want your boots.

  16. I love your outfit. That sweater still looks brand new especially with the way you layered it. I would never have known it was from Middle School. And the way you paired it up with those boots are fabulous. I love it.
