Part of my plan to spend wisely (particularly on shopping) this year is to really work on my wardrobe wisely. With the recent #ootds (outfit of the day) that I've been documenting in my Instagram account (follow me, cassey_cakes ;-), I believe I've been successful in doing that. I've come up with some really new combinations that I've never thought would work before. While documenting (aka taking pictures) is really helpful, I recently realized that doing the laundry is the time when my fashion creative juices flow. LOL! You know how they say that shower is their time for thoughts and decision-making? It happens to me whenever I am handwashing a certain cloth and ideas of ways I could wear that item comes to my mind. Our laundry's location being on the rooftop where you can breathe fresh air could also be a factor. Haha!!!
Digging deep into my closet and finding things that I've never worn for more than 5 years or gives me such an amazing feeling. Here's why:
#1 Bayo knitted top. This top is one of my favorite top to wear in college. IN COLLEGE. I mean seriously, how many of us can still fit into dresses from way way back? Haha! Also, I can't help but feel a sense of pride for my choices of clothes back then. A purchase from 10 years ago that can still be worn today can be considered an investment and a wise buy. Agree? Hehehe.
In hear, I wore it with a Topshop lace skirt with blue inner clothing details that I got on sale, a Cotton On necklace on sale and Dorothy Perkins top that I bought on sale as well. :)))) Sunnies are from a market at the night pub in Siem Reap.
#2 Le Donne shoes. Oh em gee. I don't remember ever buying in this shop anymore recently but I can still recall from where I got these when I unearthed it among the boxes of shoes in my room. Such a thrill to wear it again. It's still somehow in good condition. It amazes me how I already consider it such high heels (or wedgies more like) back then which maybe is a good 8 years ago compared to the shoesies I've beenwearing now. Hehe. This just simply proves how I'm utterly capable of taking care of my things. ;-)
Wearing a Tomato top, Jose Celine-inspired design bag and Mango red skinny jeans.
#3 Karimadon dress Once again, I had the sheer joy of wearing this dress again and layering it fresh with a floral to floral theme! This dress is approximately a 2008 purchase.
In here I paired it with a Forever21 vest, Dorothy Perkins braided belt, Plains n Prints scarf and a Cole Vintage bag.
This will be my last post for this week. An early happy weekend greeting! =)
