197. (Do the remix!)
Dress H&M | Belt ASOS | Scarf Forever 21 | Cardigan Thrifted | Tights Simons | Boots Thrifted Dr. Martens
Only one picture of this outfit. Why? Because my camera is sucking and I think it's time for me to invest in a new lens.
I can't believe I got these babies for $7.00 ... that's right, $7.00 ... best part about buying used Dr. Martens is that I don't have to wear them in so it's SUPER comfortable!) Oh, sorry about the fur. My pug sheds A LOT.
Beautiful detailing on the tights.
I'm trying really hard to remix my items as you can see. I mean, isn't it obvious that my blog centres around remixing? Personally I'd rather wear a bunch of items over and over again than buy one dress or one garment and NEVER wear it again. My mission as a blogger was never to flaunt my new items each time I do a blog post, and it never will be my mission. This might be how other people run their blogs, but it's not how I run mine. I blog for myself, to keep progress of my personal style and personal growth as an individual and to meet like-minded people in the world. Besides, I'm one of those people who really LOVES and wears the hell out of the garment until I get sick of it.
Here's reasons why I remix:
1. It's more sustainable, less wasteful.
2. Forces you to think about your outfits.
3. I'm not rich. (I never intended this in the first place. I'm not trying to be a fashion blogger who flaunts a bunch of designer brands and wears Jeffrey Campbell Litas. That may be other bloggers prerogatives, but not mine!)
4. I like wearing the hell out of my stuff.
There's lots of great remix blogs out there. My favourite is Clothedmuch.com. Elaine is a great blogger and is PRO at making new looks with what little clothes she has. She is my inspiration, do check out her blog if you haven't yet!
Do you remix? Do you prefer blogs that integrate remixing garments and outfits? What are your opinions on this issue? I'd love to know what you think!
In addition to remixing, I just like being cheap. I think I will make a post on thrifting and my overall frugality another time. Even though I have a lot of clothes, I don't pay a lot for garments. If I had a lot spare cash, I would definitely invest in brand new clothing... but I don't think that's gonna happen any time soon - that's the life of a student, huh? :P
Anyways, until next time!
