New year, new wardrobe! I read this recently and I thought that I would love to run out and buy a whole new wardrobe imagining I had that wad of cash just like Julia Roberts did in Pretty woman or a more wholesome version in the character of Anne Hathaway as Andrea in Devil wears Prada. Sadly, reality strikes, and I realize that I told myself that this year is the year I start saving. At 37, I should be able to put money on better investments. Believe me, it was difficult to accept that my shoe collection is not an investment! So, I vowed to be a saving Nazi! The challenge here is to get creative. Since I work for TV, I am thinking , “I cant wear this because I’ve worn this before.” Really though, who cares? How many people just wear their clothes once? I think this all the time, but in the end I find a way to tweak an outfit and make it look new again. An example is this ensembles: a Joey Samson tulle skirt from a gown I wore to a friends wedding and my Zara chambray shirt. Who would have thought tulle and denim can wok together? Sometimes no one really notices… but I know and I feel good about being able to wear something over and over again because I get to convince myself that my clothing purchases are good deals.
