NO. 140 // BUYING VS. BORROWING

THROWBACK // 

Currently thinking of new ways to style this polka dot jumpsuit from last year’s spring dress week post!

Question: Do you own all the clothes that you wear?

Answer: I get this question all the time, and no, I do not! I frequently borrow pieces from brands, showrooms, and fashionable friends 🙂 I know I don’t *need* to own more clothing, but as I love highlighting new brands and upcoming trends, I have found borrowing to be a great way to feature new pieces. I also love re-wearing and re-styling my older pieces, so even as I am showing the new I try to incorporate the old! Borrowing new pieces helps me do this as well. I will continue to buy new clothing, and I do own the majority of the items that are featured on the site, but as I try to incorporate more sustainable practices I have tried to cut back on how much I am purchasing.

This amazing double-breasted star coat (part of #nsale) caught my eye this week – it’s currently sitting in my cart!

    Thanks for that information. Have thought that you have become a multi-millionaire over the years, to be able to wear all those designer and fabulously pricey clothes on almost a daily basis. 🙂
    But any which way, it is how you style your clothes, expensive or not, that makes them outstandingly-beautiful! That’s what makes you exceptional!
