This is a skirt I bought in like 2006 or something? It's really cute because it's thin faded navyish gray and light gray stripes, with off white lace at the bottom. Very now. But a below the knee skirt on me? Not so much. The wide band at the top is just wide enough to cover my boobs, but I have to wear a belt to cover the line/make it actually fit like a dress. Not that I'm complaining, I wear belts like this all the time anyway. I sewed on a couple straps that I tied in the back like a halter and VOILA!
With vest to shape and hide seam instead of belt. I bought this tan corduroy vest in like 2006 from walmart. IT'S STILL GOOD!
This is my favorite. I bought this corduroy blazer in like 2005 or 2006? Not sure. Super glad I did, though. The only things new in this entire outfit are the belt and shoes, totaling a NEW cost of only about $30. Hurray!
Here is another skirt, which I purchased in 2007 from H&M. It is also supposed to be worn at the hips, and hits around the knee. On top I'm wearing a Banana Republic shirt I found at a thrift store for like $5. Steal. I'm also wearing a belt from Urban Outfitters I got on sale for around $10, and today I am wearing this outfit with Target tights and shoes, for a total NEW cost of around $35-$40. GO ME.
With Urban Outfitters cardigan, about $12. So many ways to wear it!!! =D
Anyone else like to rewear old stuff in new ways to save money? I think these turned out pretty great.
Thanks for reading!
