All of these reasons and more led to a little experiment last week...
purple dress + slip extender + blue blouse + navy cardigan + black tights + shiny bracelets + vintage headscarf + blue beads
purple dress + slip extender + plaid button up + red cardigan + polka dot tights + Splurge necklace
purple dress + polka dot blouse + grey cardigan (all secondhand!) + grey tights + headscarf + Anthro bracelet + fave necklace
purple dress + black skirt + yellow polka dot cardigan (all secondhand!) + black tights + shiny bracelets + giant effing ring + fave necklace
It feels good to know I have this much flexibility in my closet, and with mostly secondhand pieces! It feels good to know that I don't "need" anything new in my wardrobe because I am fully capable of making the things that I do have work, and work well. That being said, I totally bought two cute, new sweaters this week but only because it's darn freezing in my office!
Which look is your favourite?
Have you ever tried such an experiment?
