oldies & goodies

I like to shop. I have a lot of clothes. Sue me. One thing I can say is that I keep and wear my clothes for years. Whether it comes from FOREVER 21 or SAKS FIFTH AVENUE, I will wear it until it can't be worn anymore. This skirt and these shoes are exhibit A & B. I've had both for at least 3 years and although I have purchased plenty of skirts and black heels over the course of those years, I don't plan on getting rid of either of these anytime soon. I love new stuff, but there's something special (and cost efficient) about oldies and goodies
I've also had my Michael Kors tortoise watch for years and I literally wear it everyday. Literally. It's such a good piece to have in your jewelry box and believe it or not (I didn't believe it) it's ON SALE!! Not sure how long this sale will last, so run, don't walk...

wearing: gap sweater, forever 21 skirt, steve madden luxe heels, jewel mint earrings, forever 21 & old navy accessories, michael kors watch (ON SALE!!!!!!
worn: lounging at the W

  3. I am the same way! I still have a lot from high school and even more from college. I just love what I buy and I can't help it! (Plus if I can still incorporate it into my wardrobe and still love it, why not keep it!) You look so cute and I'm loving this skirt on you!
