shopping my closet

sweater: american eagle (aerie), top+bottoms+necklace: forever21, 
bracelets from top to bottom: h&m, luna (local boutique, h&m)

finding ways to shop my own closet and combine pieces i already have is definitely challenging, but i think it's a great way to stretch my creativity and also stick to a budget (because i've been trying to not buy too many new pieces!). 

something i've learned is that even though you might not think the outfit will work when you see the pieces separately, sometimes if you put them on and keep tweaking, the result can surprise you. try just the front of the top tucked in, or just the side tucked in, or roll up the sleeves, or scrunch the sleeves, or belt the bottoms, mix colors, mix prints, add jewelry, add accessories. modify it until it either works or really doesn't work! good luck! :)

  1. oooh grace, i'm liking the straight & new hair cut! :)

  2. Even when I'm just shopping for affordable trendy jewelry, I can't go overboard. I like your idea of "shopping your closet" for new looks. I'll have to go digging through my own to see what new styles I can come up with. Thanks!

  3. Very true...I need to shop my own closet too once I get it organized! I am too much of a shopaholic...*sigh*

  4. Hey grace!

    that is some solid advice , couldn't agree more with you.

    Buying new pieces is great but it's constantly dents my wallet , So I try to turn to my closet to put together different looks.


  5. Yes, a new closet is great but it is constantly dents your wallet:)
