One thing I love about going home is looking through all the “junk” piled up in my room that has accumulated from my many moves to and from college each year. Most of the junk is from my freshman year of college when I bought everything in the world that could possibly fit into my dorm room. Among the boxes of “junk” I always seem to find something useful that I’d forgotten about. Sometimes it’s more craft stuff for making cards or more check books. Other times it’s clothes or shoes that have been abandoned for a few years.
This past week went I went home I found this lovely red sweater tucked away in my closet. I don’t remember when I bought it; I believe from Delia’s several years back but I do remember that it never quite fit right. It always seemed a bit big, so when I tried it on I wasn’t expecting much. But to my surprise it fit perfectly, and it was more cute and comfy than I remembered.
I also rediscovered several other sweaters that finally fit after about four years of sitting in my closet. And as you may have read in Rediscovering Uggs: a [love/hate] relationship, I also rediscovered those lovely little black boots on my feet. It kind of feels like I had a mini shopping spree finding all these old items in my closet back home and getting some great new items for Christmas.
After wearing the same 30 items for 30 days, it was definitely time for a little refresher.
Here are a few of my new items:
A lovely Heritage 81 denim jacket
Bow tights that I’ve been searching for forever from Forever 21
A pencil skirt from Express that I’ve been desperately longing for quite some time
An adorable floral print peplum top also from Express to pair with the skirt
And two beautiful new pairs of boots to add to the collection.
Did you rediscover anything this holiday season or get any new items for your closet?
