Do you ever notice something that is always at the back of your closet? You’re so used to seeing it there, that you don’t even consider it as a piece of clothing anymore, its has become something more like… furniture or a decor piece in your wardrobe. As silly as this sounds, you cannot lie to me, I know you can relate.
In my case, that piece is this beautiful and colorful pleated skirt. How could I forget about its existence? I’m not really sure, all I know is that I woke up one morning and I just knew that I would wear it that day. To be completely honest with you, I had never worn it in my life. It actually has been in my house forever, apparently one of my aunts bought it when she was my age, so I guess that it’s okay to call the skirt “vintage”.
I decided to pair it with a plain black shirt and white Stan Smith’s, for accessories I picked the most gorgeous minimalistic necklace that I literally just got from Outcast Jewels, it’s made from antique gold and I have been wearing it non-stop.
I am entirely minimalistic when it comes to jewelry and accessories, don’t get me wrong, I adore layering pieces and stacking up necklaces until my arm is no longer visible (hello, middle school me), but most of the time I keep it very simple, it’s almost something unconscious.
So, now its your turn to admit that you have pieces in your closet that you haven’t worn in ages… it’s time to bring them back! And in case that you don’t like it anymore you should definitely consider donating everything that you do not use anymore, it’s up to you to get the most out of your clothes and why not help other people along the way? It’s a win-win situation.
Make sure to let me know what is the oldest piece in your closet and how did you get it, I love vintage shops and imagining the story behind every hand me down.
Ps. I would love to know what you enjoy to see on the blog, if you have any requests, please make sure to leave a comment below or send me a tweet.
