I'm back with a renewed spirit about the blog, Thanks to everyone for all the support from my previous post about not keeping up with fashion. It was good to hear other bloggers and readers also feel the same, it really touched me to read the words of encouragement. My readers rock and you make me want to keep working harder on the blog. This weekend for Valentine's Day I took advantage of the gorgeous California weather to shop my own closet once again. Since we had record heat here, had to find something cool to wear. No winter warm and cozy outfits here.
Shopping in my own closet is actually fun, made me excited about what I will find that I forgot about. Also the possibility of creating new outfits pairing items I would have not thought of before. We are creatures of habit, I totally am and tend to wear the same outfits paired together over and over. A great way to mix it up, is to pair up items that you have never worn together before. This Kimono is a versatile piece that I know can be worn with much more than just a black top and jeans. Although that's how I usually wear it, but have mixed it up a bit here. The kimono on top of a tank or maxi dress or with a skirt would also be great. I will have to try these combinations soon
This Kimono from WetSeal Plus is a good example of an item that is a bit trendy with classic style elements. A few years ago kimonos became very popular and trendy. This one has a floral print with fringe (also trendy), but since its black with red floral print it can be a classic item. Black and floral are not going away any time soon. I've had this in my closet for at least 2 years and still looks stylish and on trendy. I see this working for many more years, and one day becoming a vintage classic, Seriously!
Next time you think you have nothing to wear, I challenge you to dig deep into your closet and find something you haven't worn and make it work. It can be challenging sometimes, but that is part of the fun of shopping your own closet. Finding new ways to wear the clothes you already have and make new and stylish outfits.
