My Outfit Monday: A good deal -- and I ain't lion
Remember that movie The Lion King and that catchy Elton John song “The Circle of Life”? That popped into my head as I dressed myself this morning in an outfit that represents that revolving-door concept (and features a bit of animal print to boot).
I think I’ve mentioned how I recently purged my closet. Unfortunately for me, it’s also slowly refilling as I sell old items at stores like Revolve Clothing Exchange – then end up with cash or store credit to buy new stuff.
I know. Tooootal fail.
Or is it…?
Today’s outfit is a mix of items from Plato’s Closet (leopard print top, $6-ish), Crystal Expressions & Drew Street Bargain Resale in Clearwater (navy blue DKNY jacket, $14), and the Goodwill (gray slacks, which I bought too long ago to remember the price but am sure cost no more than $5).
The earrings were a gift from my mom. Feeling crafty lately, I made the bird's nest necklace myself.
I think it’s a good trade off. I’ve downsized, and still managed to breathe new life into my wardrobe by replacing a few of those outdated, ill-fitting or never-worn duds I purged with inexpensive things I love.
But enough about me! I wanna hear from you guys: Are you a fan of this outfit or no?
