Since I haven’t been shopping all that much this year (save for my May binge), I have been repeating my pieces a whole lot, but try to do so in a different way each time. Here’s the top I wore last week, and also layered here, with the skirt I wore with Chucks during SXSW.
I’m really aware of how often and how many ways an item can be worn before I buy it these days. If I can’t think of three ways to wear it when I am trying it on at a store, I wont pony up for it. It’s the same thing when I shop for a client. If I am pre-shopping for someone and I see something amazing, I wont have her try it on unless I can see how it fits in with the rest of her wardrobe. Why pay good money for something you can only wear once, in one way, if it’s not a wedding dress or something?
