Recycling the Closet

Who doesn’t love getting new stuff? I certainly get excited when a package arrives, though my hubby just rolls his eyes and asks, “don’t you have enough (shoes, jewelry, bags, clothes)?”

Yes, I do. I probably have a lot more than I need, and sometimes it’s easy to forget some gems bought from a season back at the back of my closet. Today I decided to mix some oldies but goodies with a couple newer pieces.

Jacket, Forever 21 Plus. Black tunic, Victor. Gray t shirt (underneath), Charlotte Russe. Leggings, Forever 21 Plus. Boots, Forever 21.

The faux leather jacket, boots, and leggings are newer purchases from Forever 21. I’ve become a fan of the Forever 21 Plus line, as everything I’ve bought is definitely made for a curvier gal. Stylish, comfortable, and very affordable!

I had some fun today “making new earrings” by taking parts of necklaces and other earrings that were broken and made new hoops! I also found this necklace I bought from Claire’s Accessories a while back and pinned it to my black tunic! I’ve had this tunic from JC Penney for about four years, and I still love it. It’s great for layering over a t shirt!

While on my therapy walk today, I couldn’t help but try out some ballet positions:) I can’t wait to take a class again!

"Fifth" position -though it's closer to fourth. I'm on my way to getting my turnout back!

I’m going to keep pulling out some “oldies but goodies” and mixing them up with newer things. Plus, it’s a good time to figure out what to donate. Clothes should be worn and loved, not left to sit at the bottom of a drawer. So…the purge begins!

What are some things YOU’VE rediscovered or recycled? Comment below!
