Shopping in My Closet

March 14, 2013

Hello lovely readers!

Honestly, sometimes there's no place I like to shop more than my very own closet!! I've gotten a lot better about it, but I have been known to buy something that's SUPER CUTE in the stores, but upon bringing it home I realize I don't have the right shoes to go with it, the right accessories, the seasons change, or various other excuses...which leads to items hanging in my closet that still have the tags on them. 

This makes me feel bad UNTIL the awesome day arrives when I am looking for an outfit and just when I start to give up hope finding something I want to wear, I shuffle through my clothes to find that little dress that I never wore, brand new with tags. I then realize that I NOW have the perfect shoes and accessories to wear with it! It's like fashion serendipity, I'm telling you! Before I know it, I have a whole "new" outfit to wear....and that's what I like to call "shopping in my closet." The cheapest kind of shopping there is!! :)

A few weeks ago this whole scenario played out with this little dress I bought from forever ago at Macy's, hanging in my closet with the tags still on it. It's a short-sleeve sweater dress that came with a super cute dark brown belt. Problem? I never had the right color of brown boots to wear with it. I had light brown boots, but not the dark brown shade of boots that this dress calls for. Fast forward to present day.....I now have dark brown Frye riding boots that are the beyond perfect shade of brown to wear with the dress! I was SO excited to finally put together a look with this dress (including a dark brown leather jacket!). Here's how shopping in my closet turned out....

 Dress/Belt: BCX at Macy's
Boots: Frye
Bracelet: Brighton (Thank you to my sweet bf's family for that awesome Christmas gift!)
Earrings: Charlotte Russe
Leather jacket: Gap

So do y'all like to shop in YOUR closet?! Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks so much for reading dolls!
