We all tend to gravitate towards certain items in our closets all the time, especially when we truly love them. As many tops, shirts, skirts, pants, jeans, sweaters, dresses, shoes, sneakers galore that we have – we wear the same damn things all the time. I know I do, and you probably do too. Lately I’ve been trying to find a new way to restyle some of my favorite items and with this look I’ve managed to do just that.
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:
- Do I have something similar?
- Do I know someone who has something similar?
- Is this item an investment piece? (SERIOUSLY!)
