I've said before how posting regular what I wore photos is really helping me go through my closet to create new outfits that I haven't thought of before. This is another result of that. Why have I not put these pieces together before?!
I didn't buy any of these pieces together. I got the skirt from Goodwill a while ago, because it was a neutral pencil skirt that fit well, so I figured it would be great and versatile. I got the shirt this past summer from a local thrift store because it was short sleeved, and flowy, and a bright shade of green that works in all seasons. The scarf is one that's made an appearance before and was just $5 from Wal-Mart.
The shoes were another Goodwill find, and quite the steal if I say so myself. Shoes are, in my opinion, the most difficult thing to find in good condition at thrift stores. So, when I found these classic black pumps, I snatched them up for occasions like this. Or for professional events, but these outfits are certainly more fun. The leopard belt was a gift from my parents several Christmases ago and I've had the tights for a while and have no idea where they came from.
And of course I'm stacking bracelets again. The silver bangle was a gift for high school graduation and the black wooden one is from an international fair also in high school, so they are oldies but goldies.
Officially, this outfit is a date night ensemble, but is so festive for this time of year, I certainly think it would be great for a Christmas party with friends or co-workers, church, or any other get together this time of the year.
And of course, just another reminder that my closet's not so bad after all and that while I do love shopping for new clothes, there are some gems already at home with a little creativity. What new outfits have you put together shopping your closet?
