One oufit worn three ways? Yes, please!
When it comes to shopping for clothes, I like to get my money’s worth.
Will I be able to wear it again?
Will I be able to style it differently without looking like I’m wearing the same outfit, even though I am?
If I put on a few pounds, will it still fit?
These are some of the questions I ask myself before purchasing an outfit.
Okay, you got me, I’m lying. I’m sort of an impulsive shopper so I tend to buy when I see if I have the cash on hand.
Not smart, I’ll tell you that much. I would like to be that woman that asks herself at least 5 different questions before buying an outfit. I want to be frugal and penny-wise and make smart decisions.
But I deviate. The one question I do ask myself – but after I have bought an outfit and worn it once or twice is, how many different ways can I style it?
Most women that I know love clothes (myself included) and we can never have enough. Sure you may hear us say “I shouldn’t be buying any more clothes, but do we mean it? Hell no!
There is a reason this quote exists:
What you will most likely hear us say is ” Ahhhhhhh, I have nothing to wear!”
Every time I look into my wardrobe, I glance at my clothes with loathing. Like, how dare you not be more than what you are?
Granted, I may not even have enough space in my closet for more clothes (even though I give away material things on a regular) but why should that stop me from wanting more?
Because we never feel like we have enough clothes and because we are not celebrities or ‘influencers’ who are often sent clothes for free, you gotta work with what you’ve got. Whether it’s little or a lot.
The best way to make the most of the clothes in your closet is to re-style. Whether you can count on both fingers how many clothing items you have, or have lost count, one thing’s for sure, we all like the feeling of wearing new clothing.
Getting that feeling is as easy as re-styling. Instead of wearing the same look, the same way, all the damn time, get creative!
That’s what I did with this co-ord set from Mr Price clothing.
Look 1 – Original
Casual, professional and fun all in one look.
The real tea on this pants…
Let me tell you, so many people love this pants. I know because they told me on Instagram and on the streets. But I will say the quality is freaking poor! I’ve only worn it once and the button fell out, some threads were sticking out of the fabric and it looks like I have washed it many times over even though it has to be washed.
I can probably only get another wear out of it after washing and never be able to wear it again. It looks good but its far from good, at least in my opinion. It’s a bit like throwing money down the drain but hey, at least I looked good for a day and got three styles out of her.
Thank you so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post. If you did and would like to see more posts of me re-styling outfits, holla at your girl. xo
