In the world of fashion bloggers, people never want to wear their old pieces. Why? It’s dumbfounding to me and personally, I don’t understand it. I’m on a budget. As a college student, I don’t have thousands of dollars at my disposal every day to write a new post about. Now don’t get me wrong, I know people who will buy things, shoot it, and take it back or they get loans from the brands and have a short time to bring it back. Those are all perfectly explainable reasons, but in the blogging world, some people often turn over clothes like they turn the pages of a magazine.
I love my closet the way it is. I’ve got statement pieces and basics, all of which have come together to create the perfect wardrobe for my style. I love shopping just as much as the next gal. If I had the money, I could and would spend all of my days shopping. I feel like a little kid in the candy shop when I go into Zara and get to pull a brand new piece for my wardrobe and *gasp* sometimes two pieces. Shopping and having the money to shop isn’t a bad thing, but sometimes, people need to be real and relatable.

Want to know why I love re-wearing old pieces? Because I can make something great that looks new out of old pieces! I’ve used this Zara pinafore in old posts and this hat among many of my Instagram posts! Some pieces really do never go out of style and I love all of the ones that I use on a day to day basis. When I see a blogger take older pieces from their wardrobes, I feel as if I can relate to them, instead of just seeing how to pair a new Kenzo sweater with a new pair of True Religion jeans on every post.
Let the people know what your favorite pieces are and how much you truly love them! Overall, what I do have to say is use what you have and if you have the money to buy a new outfit for every blog post, power to you! I don’t and many people I know don’t. So try not to be surprised when you see me wearing this hat again!
