pair of pinstriped gray capri length pants
short jean skirt
knee length jean skirt
red empire waist shirt
ballet flats (new, with tags)
leather jacket (from Wilsons, for $8!)
funky blue t-shirt
I also had $75 in Gap giftcards from my wonderful husband. I went and put those to good use on the clearance rack and came up with this:
brown pair of cords
pink waffle knit top
white button down with ruffles
white and red striped shirt with ruffles
thin gold belt
I brought all this home and once again scoured my closet. I found a pair of Old Navy jean in my size with the tags still on. I have no memory of buying those, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth. I laid everything out. I tried everything on. I mixed and matched and this is some of what I came up with
New shoes, skirt and top. Old leggings and sweater
New top and vest, old scarf and jeans
Not sure if I love this outfit, I sorta think I look like Captain Jack Sparrow. New pants, shirt, and scarf. Old boots.
Why am I only wearing one shoe? I don't know where the other one is...duh. New skirt and shirt, old tights and shoe (s)
Over the modeling thing. Here are some other combos I came up with. A mix of old and new.
And there you have it. I now have a big pile of clothing waiting for a new owner. I will donate it to Adullam's closet and maybe cut some of it up to create new things for my kids. Tomorrow will be the last post in this series, a reflection on this whole fashion thing. Hope your feeling inspired to go through your closet!
