Hey, guys – remember my last post about shopping your own closet? This weekend while I was home, I found even more pieces that are still in fashion for this Spring season! I forgot that I evened owned some of these. :P
In the Filipino culture, we don’t celebrate a girl’s Sweet Sixteen. Instead, we celebrate her coming of age with a Debut. If you’re interested, read the Wikipedia article I’ve linked to. : ) Anyway, I was lucky enough to have friends that chose me to be part of their “court”. Thus, I learned performed various choreographed ballroom dances. For one of them, I needed a pair of silver heels and my mom bought this pair for me at DSW when I was seventeen.
At that age, I wasn’t even aware of designer shoe brands! Now that I have more of an appreciation for them, I’m surprised that I’ve completely overlooked this pair by BCBGirls for the past four years. Although they’re half a size too large on me, it’s not significant enough that I have trouble walking in them. They’re actually surprisingly comfortable. Definitely going to start wearing them!
Two summers ago, my family and I went on a Caribbean cruise. I’ve completely forgotten which island we bought this tiered dress from, though. The tube top is elasticized, and the flowy skirt goes down to my mid-calf. Pictured below is a close up of the pretty floral pattern featured on some of its panels. I find it perfect to wear while walking on beaches or through parks. : )
Below are two Billabong tube tops that I purchased from PacSun over two years ago. They have paint-splatter print all over them, and bring a much-needed pop of color into my wardrobe. I once wore the black one to a party that was lit up by black lights, and I was glowing in the dark! :D
I bought the black miniskirt pictured below at Charlotte Russe about three years ago. The ruffles are super cute, but I never wore it much because I was extremely self-conscious of my legs. Now that I’m more comfortable with my body, I plan to work this piece into more of my outfits. :]
Shopping your closet is a great way to save money, and maximize the potential of your wardrobe. It’s especially useful to organize your clothes regularly when you think you need to buy seasonal trends – because chances are you might already own something similar! :o
On a final note, I’ve begun to watch the television series Dexter upon recommendation by several friends. Loving it so far! Does anyone have another series that they particularly enjoy that I can start after I’m done with this?
