Fashion // Wildest Dreams

This outfit is an extreme example of repurposing old clothes. Almost every single article of clothing in this outfit is two-plus years old or a hand-me-down. The boots are from ~2011, the top is from my sister (I salvaged it from her Goodwill pile), the mustard jacket is also ~2011, and the skirt must be from 2009 or so! It’s mad old. I used to wear it at least once a month in college. And the scarf is my mother’s.

It’s always a challenge putting together solid outfits on a tight budget, but it’s also fun and extremely satisfying to leave your bank account alone and just rummage through your own closet.

  • Love it! I love thrift store shopping or digging through my closet and putting together a great look. Sometimes I pack clothes away for a while and revisit them later. It’s like Christmas! Haha.

    • That’s a great idea! Things always look a little better when you haven’t seen/worn them in years.

  • Tell me that you’re not serious calling clothes from 2011 “old” and 2009 “mad old”. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around that.

    • Haha! Keep in mind that the bulk of my clothing comes from cheap stores like Forever 21. That stuff does not age well. I also went through some weird fashion phases and got rid of a lot of my college and late high school clothing. The bunny slippers have invariably remained, however. 🙂
