cleanin out these closets

 
I like traveling light, and as a general rule of thumb I limit myself to one carry-on when I'm going home. I always try
to reinvent old wardrobe remnats while wearing garments from the past - like this vintage bag, my little brother's pajamas (complete with pockets - this is going to be my new styling go-to on lazy days...), an old beanie from middle school days.
 
 These Anne Klein gladiator heels are the first pair of heels I ever purchased for graduation in 2008 (besides my tacky prom shoes), from TJ Maxx. I remember discovering fashiontoast in fall of senior year (2007) and lusting over all her shoes :) Gladiator was big, and so were t-strap sandals. The tank was a clearance purchase from F21 (definitely <$5...) during college. Bridging my middle school, high school and college days to the present with a recent rainbow jacket purchase.

    1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
