Well just when I told you that I wasn't going to post on fashion again, I do.
I just can't help it.
I've been having a fun time figuring out this fashion dilemma I had found myself in.
I found on Pinterest a website called Putting Me Together. It's this young girl who remixes her wardrobe. Remixing just means she takes what she has and mixes and matches her outfits. Just like me, she found herself in a rut wearing the same outfits over and over just one way and decided to educate herself on changing things up.
I am a total copy cat. If you see something incredible that I have sewed, crafted or cooked, I promise you it was not an original idea. What I had to do was take my iPhone to my closet, look at her step by step tutorial on what to do and look at her photos for ideas. I started with her link called "Building a Remixable Wardrobe." Knowing myself and my limited short term memory, I threw out outfits on the floor and took photos of them based on the photos of her outfits. It was really fun and within 30 minutes I had about 50 photos taken. I could have done much more, but 50 was good for me.
Now what I'm about to tell you might sound a bit OCD, and I assure you, I am not OCD, just extremely forgetful and visual. I saw Walgreens was having a deal where you get 50 prints for $5.00. I figured it was worth $5 to eliminate all thought in getting dressed each a.m. so I ordered prints of the outfits I had thrown together on my floor.
After reading through that blog, I also decided to run to Kohls and Goodwill and grab a few things that could increase the number of outfits that I can make in my closet. At Kohls, I bought a few skinny belts that were on clearance. They were about $3 or less each and I got a 2 pack of gold and leopard and a 2 pack of silver and black and white. Then I went to Goodwill and found a wide woven black belt and a wide woven brown belt, for $1.99 each. I also got a fitted, short blazer - one chocolate brown and one gray for $7.99 each.
I'm stepping out a bit by belting it and it's been years since I've worn blazers, but her blog convinced me that I don't have to have an hourglass figure to try this remixing idea. Check it out and let me know if she inspired you too.
