Recycled Wardrobe: How to restyle without breaking the bank

Recycled Wardrobe: How to restyle without breaking the bank

Often I find myself lusting after an outfit I see on Instagram or in a storefront on a manikin. We all get that FOMO feeling when we realize that we don’t have that exact outfit in our possession – or do we? Our minds are quickly overtaken with the idea that we need to have that outfit, or those shoes or that bag or that jacket… and we are dragged back down to reality when we look at the price tag. Accepting defeat is not part of my personality – I may lay low for a minute, but when I do come back it is always with a plan.

So ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do I have something similar?
  2. Do I know someone who has something similar?
  3. Is this item an investment piece? (SERIOUSLY!)

Target is my weakness. Who else can agree with the previous sentence? EVERYONE! They have always been my go to for just about everything under the sun, it is often a danger to go to the store without a chaperon. You always walk out with 100 things you didn’t necessarily need but couldn’t walk pass. They have the same effect on you even online. I was looking for another faux fur coat but nothing like I had been seeing all over instagram or on the streets. It was always the same cut, style, and feel. Since I am a giant pain in the ass to myself, I HAD TO FIND SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Target answered my fashion prayers with this coat…

Working 9-5, M-F in Midtown may seem part dream and part dreadful. I am knee deep in tourist attractions which means nothing but non-New Yorkers surround me. Once in awhile I spot a native New Yorker walking warp speed (like myself) down the street and instantly get fashion inspiration. Granted I have seen plenty of suits, which are all in various shades of blue, but I hardly ever see a fashionista strutting the streets. Recently I rare sighting of a fashionable New Yorker sparked an idea – A STATEMENT COAT.

“I want to live in LA.” This is a statement everyone has said at least one point or another, myself included. I was obsessed with the laid back lifestyle, constant sunshine and beaches. Who wouldn’t want to live there?? Even going into this recent trip I wanted that dream to become a potential reality.
After finally getting a job in the concrete jungle & away from the forgotten borough, I fell back in love with NYC. I decided I wanted both… a bicoastal lifestyle. How am I going to achieve it? I’ll figure it out… I mean even this little blog could potentially get me there.

Earlier in the summer I booked my trip to California. Not realizing it was during the time of fashion week in NYC. I knew I needed to stay longer than 4 days as I had previously done. Both times I did every tourist attraction there was possible. I somewhat hated myself for doing so since I live in tourist central… but I couldn’t help myself. This time around I wanted to be one with the west coasters, well sorta.

I am from New York, more specifically from Brooklyn (proud) and currently residing in the forgotten borough (embarrassed). What may surprise you is that although I have done a majority of the tourist attractions throughout all of my life, there are certain parts of New York City that I have yet to fully explore and appreciate. Soho being one of…

Create & Cultivate: NYC Conference

I found this event when I originally created my twitter, I was looking for other sites to follow & found this cute website where they had a TON of positive and up lifting blogs. This immediately caught my attention, while exploring their site I saw that they had conferences for bloggers… Not only did it include other fashion or lifestyle…

How adorable are these shirts? I found these on ASOS is so many different styles and I had to hold back buying all of them. For the spring I am trying to defer from buying any more black or white items since I already have 100’s of them. The tiger print caught my eye simply because its different. I like different.…

My current age is that of an adult. My actions are not consistent with that statement, firmly standing strong on my Peter Pan never growing up philosophy …. as I continue to do responsible adult behavior so I can be left alone to act like a free little bird. Maybe not so little after all the pizza I consume but…

Bell sleeves have become one of my favorite trends this season. I didn’t want to overly invest in them but a few different styled bell sleeves won’t hurt no body. Ironically as I write this post I keep having to correct myself when I write the word “bell sleeve.” My dogs name is Belle so it’s my go to spelling…
