I LOVE a good versatile piece. They make my heart race. Who doesn’t love to get more bang for their buck? It is one of my fashion obsessions: re-purposing old items to make them new again.
What bugs me on a regular basis about blogs and celebrity fashion is, a lot of the time, they seem to never wear an item more than once OR continue to wear a certain item the same way over and over again. We don’t all have the back accounts of a real housewife (or the closet size!) and who wants to wear one piece and say goodbye forever anyways? I don’t like goodbyes. They make me sad. I like my clothes! That’s why I bought them…and I want to wear them again and again and again!
So, suffice to say, I love how Olivia Palermo (one of my style icons) reusing so many pieces in her wardrobe! This girl is loaded, but she clearly loves her aquazzara shoes so why wear anything else? The best part: you can’t even tell she is rewearing an item for the 100th time because the other pieces she pairs the recycled item with are a completely new style than the last time she wore it. From her hair and makeup to her jewels, she tricked you into thinking the whole outfit was brand new. GENIUS. Recently, I noticed how many times she has worn this Gerard Darel 24 Hour Woodstock Rafia Bag. And why wouldn’t she wear it over and over?! It’s s cute!! I love the amount of different scenarios and looks she managed to pull off with this bag. Check out the master at work…
