WVW: Recycled and Remixed*

The elements of this look—worn for a casual day at home and errand-running—have all been included in other posts. I’ve never reworked them into this look, but I rather like it myself. I shopped my own closet for a change.

*WVW = What V Wore
Old Navy jacket, The Julia Dress, Target belt, Justina Leigh bracelet, Sportsgirl socks, Target legwarmers, Jeffrey Campbell clogs.

    You need some kind of award for reworking those leg warmers! Sweet idea, I have both the clogs and leg warmers at home – never thought of associating the pair of them!

    PS: your hands in the pockets reminded me of the Alanis Morissette song!

    I’m broke but I’m happy
    I’m poor but I’m kind
    I’m short but I’m healthy, yeah
    I’m high but I’m grounded
    I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed
    I’m lost but I’m hopeful baby

    What it all comes down to
    Is that everything’s gonna be fine fine fine
    I’ve got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is giving a high five

    I feel drunk but I’m sober
    I’m young and I’m underpaid
    I’m tired but I’m working, yeah
    I care but I’m worthless
    I’m here but I’m really gone
    I’m wrong and I’m sorry baby

    What it all comes down to
    Is that everything’s gonna be quite alright
    I’ve got one hand in my pocket
    And the other one is flicking a cigarette

    Fab outfit! love the legwarmers + clogs combination. What a good idea when the temperature drops and you still want to wear a dress and keep your legs from freezing! – I should drag my ballet legwarmers out .

    Lately I find shopping my own closet to be more satisfying than buying something new. It forces me to be more creative with my looks and it’s good for my bank account. I love how you put this look together and that you showed us how you reworked the pieces from other looks. As much satisfaction as I get through shopping my own closet, I think Fall might require me to buy a jacket like yours! xx

      Thank you Brooke. I’m soooo bad about buying, buying, buying. I need to do more of this, for sure. Thanks for your comment, honey!

    i love how you did this, showing us the three pictures you’re choosing items from and then remixing them to create a completely new outfit. what a smart idea. you’re never-ending creativity is such a huge source of inspiration.

    and i love the new outfit. perfect fall comfy chic. you should join the blog event, fall weather suits you! (unless you joined already and i missed it of course!)

    hugs!

      Hey doll, thank you! I hope I have time to do your event. I just never know! I want to think seriously about it before I commit. That’s me….150% or zip!

      Your comment really made me smile. Thanks again.

    I think you’re the first person I’ve seen wearing clogs in a way I’ve liked: I’d never have thought of the legwarmers, but they really work: such a great look for colder days. And stripes are like crack to me, so obviously I love the dress, too :)

    (Also, thanks for your lovely comment yesterday – have added you to my blogroll/Bloglovin!)

      Hi Amber, thank you! Don’t know where the inspiration for the legwarmers with clogs came from, but it’s so fun to wear. And definitely warm.

      Stripes are like crack…love it! I, too, love a bold black-and-white stripe!

      Lacee, hello, thank you, and welcome! I LOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEE your blog. OMG. I’m so glad you dropped me a line. I’m going to be visiting you regularly!

      Thanks, Jen! It’s actually several seasons old. But so many retailers are doing the utilitarian look that I’m sure you can find something comparable.

      Also, I think Location Central is a lovely idea…I would totally participate if I weren’t squeamish about divulging my locale. Good luck with it, though!

      Thank you Steph! Actually, shopping your closet is very popular amongst the fashion blogging world. I just don’t do enough of it myself, or I don’t tell you when I am. Will do this more often in the future, however.

      Hey B, thank you doll. Miss seeing your name over here! But you’ve been so busy rocking stellar copies I know you have no time left!

    • says

      HA! I do what I can. Thanks for your comment, and welcome! They do kind of work with the leg warmers, don’t they. I only every wear mine with flares or like this. I can’t seem to get into them with tights or bare legs.
