Piece and Portrait No. 1

Hello all!

I was so excited to create my first post that I almost rushed it a little too much but so it goes. I picked out my first piece that I am donating.

The piece is from Forever21. It is at least four years old. It is a dark purple, sleeveless top that has ruffles and buttons down the middle. It has a collar that buttons up, which creates an elegant, professional look. I paired it with a long black pencil skirt,also from Forever21, with a 7-year-old belt from a wholesale shop, as well as black tights and black heals.

When I looked at the shirt hanging up in my closet, I thought, “this dusty thing has got to go.” I think I have only worn it once since I got it! I showed my roommate and she gave it a smirk, but when I put it on, we thought differently. It is actually very elegant and could be a good supplement to anyone’s wardrobe. As for me, it just isn’t my color.
I can’t wait to donate my clothes to someone in need. I feel like a young girl/woman could really appreciate this shirt more than I ever did.

Thanks for reading!

Fashion and Closet Cleaning

Every girl finds their creative outlet.

For some, that may be cooking, creating beautiful works of art, building their career as a professional of some sort. Mine happens to be fashion. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I enjoy putting pieces of my own together to create new looks. Of course, not all women can afford to buy every piece of clothing they desire. Therefore, I am going to start picking pieces from my closet, good and bad and try to rework them into feminine and fashionable pieces, while cleaning out the closet at the same time.

It is so refreshing to clean out my closet and create my beginning/new look. So every now and then I will be posting pictures of what I am cleaning out/throwing away and will begin to let these pieces go—some will be hard and some I will just give a dramatic wave goodbye.
Yes, it is sort of ironic that I will be posing in clothes that I will be giving away (for a good cause), but I am celebrating the past and very much so embracing the future.

Cheers to new beginnings!
