Everything old is new again, or more specifically, nothing gets old in my closet. I’ve had all these items for years. Except the tights. They’re about six months old and $5 at F21. I love recombining older things in new ways. Really I would say that’s the secret behind real style: being able to constantly create unique looks with existing items.
Now yes, sometimes you’ll hit on a combo you really like, and by all means repeat that. And yes, there is a finite number of combinations that look good together, but then you work within that *rather large* finite number of combinations. All I’m saying is that style comes from the ability to combine and create within the given set of materials.
Of course, that’s not to say I have style. I just have an idea of what style is.
