When it comes to fashion and being on a budget, you have to learn how to get creative. While I'd rather go shopping at some of my favorite stores and new found boutiques here in the city, I've made a promise to myself that I would hold off on spending money on clothes for a few months and focus on handling some more important business things first. Therefore, I've had to learn how to recycle my clothes multiple ways and create new looks.
I mean, lets face it, how many times have you looked at your overflowing closet and said "I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR", then moments later popped out on the scene with "that old thing" you've had for a while? This has happened to me pretty often, because to be honest I have a lot of clothes. I just prefer popping tags and putting on new things. It's fun! But, when you are working on so many things, that cost money, and you're a freelancer, you have to learn how to cut costs to get to where you want to be! If you're like me and fighting the reality, understand that this period too shall past and you will one day be able to literally "throw it in the bag", as Fab would say and buy all the clothes you want! Till then, sis... let's get creative!
I wanted to share some style inspiration to anyone out there who currently needs to cut back on shopping and use what they already have! I decided to style 2 of my go to pieces 3 ways. Lately, I've been a fan of fishnets and obsessed with this flute sleeved dress that I got a while back. The pieces are simple, but when paired with the right things, can be give you a new look each time!
LOOK 1: SPORTY
LOOK 2: CASUAL
LOOK 3: CHIC
Hat: NYC Streets (Similar)
Skirt: Forever 21
Remember, fashion isn't always about rocking the most expensive things. In all honesty, it's learning how to make the most inexpensive things look good and not break the bank in the process. I'm sure you have some go to items in your closet that you love to wear. Now, see if you can take those items and flip them three ways! You'd be surprise what you come up with, when you're forced to get creative!
