Outfit Details:
Blouse: thrifted
Red leather belt: thrifted
High waist, pre-teen male pants: thrifted
Brown loafers: thrifted

I have a sneaking suspicion that I've basically worn this same outfit minus the belt, different shoes, and with a cardigan, and posted about it on this blog.  Well, sorry for the repeat but newsflash: I actually re-wear my clothes all the time! It trips me out when I look at fashion blogs that I follow and notice that there is zero re-wearing/ re-posting of clothing. That's is so odd to me. Anyone feel the same way?


A question for all the ladies with long hair: do you have any special tips on how to detangle your hair after you wash it? The absolute bane of my existence is my freshly washed hair because it basically dreads up once water and a little bit of shampoo come into contact with it. I use a wide tooth comb to brush conditioner through it in the shower and I go through Suave children's detangling spray (Apple) like nobodies business. Ack. Help.

  3. I am always surprised at how most of your clothing is thrifted! Such a big save of money. I always just deal with the tangles afterwards ... REALLY bad, I know.

  4. I love this outfit, the shorter length of your trousers is so interesting, and the red lipstick is so glamourous!

  6. Love this look on you! It doesn't matter to me if you're rewearing items and swapping them out as long as you still look stylish and make the looks fresh. It's amazing to me how people can constantly post new outfits!

    As for hair detangling, I switch up my conditioner a lot and brush pretty frequently during my train commute. Unfortunately I haven't figured out a good system yet, but do let me know if you figure something out!

  7. Your loafers are lovely, great look! Haha I know what you mean, I really can't afford new clothes for each post.. although often I come across long forgotten items at the back of my wardrobe which helps! My hair is always pretty knotty..I usually de tangle with my fingers once it's dry :p x

  9. The checkered top is AH-DOR-ABLE. And, yes, it IS nice to see people re-wear items... that's life!

  10. I love your outfits - and yeah, I have noticed some blogs don't re-wear certain pieces. But there are some that do, and these are actually some of my favorite blogs e.g. Blushing Ambition, Late Afternoon, your blog ;)

    And, back when I had long hair, I found that trimming it every three/four months or so to get rid of the split ends actually helps it stay tangled free. And a lot of conditioning in the shower. I also have dry conditioner that I use if my hair is being particularly unruly

  12. You're a little Audrey, aren't you? Not everyone can pull of high-waisted crop pants like you guys.

  13. I also don't get style bloggers who don't remix clothes. How large are their wardrobes? Also, it seems incredibly wasteful to only wear things once.

    My hair is nearly as long as yours but not half as pretty! I desperately need a haircut. A dab of smoothing serum can help with the detanglng. Typically, I find leave-in conditioners or serums are better at detangling than sprays. And you don't have to spend a lot of money; the stuff at the drugstore works too. I change mine up all the time. Also, brushing your hair before you shower is good to minimize the tangles that are bound to happen once it's wet.

  14. Love your hair! I use serum and when trying to get knots out, start from the ends of your hair and work your way up to the roots so it doesn't knot the hair even more and there's less chance of breaking it.

  15. The red lipstick looks really good on you. & the belt accents that. :) I've always loved those shoe of yours! & I know what your talking about. Some other blogs have people wearing new stuff all the time. I find that to be pretty wasteful.

  18. solution for long tangled hair = cut cut cut!! lol I cut my hait short about 3 months ago and dont miss it one bit. Its just so easy and quick to dry and style.

    I know what you mean about re-mixing - although I havent posted enough outfit posts yet for bloggers to see the same items remixed! But dont fear - I LOVE remixing xx

  19. You know I'm with you on the rewearing of items, amiga.

    Re: your hair. Zero experience on long hair. But yours is looking super-long recently! Maybe a trim would solve some of the tangling issues?

  22. I was just trying to work out if I'd blogged today's outfit before as well.. I think only my belt and tights are different. Cellery.

    Well, you look awesome again :)

    When there is no repetetion at all in a blog that 's not brand new I always suspect the owner is either stinking rich, has a severe shopping addiction or is just playing dress up with clothes that are not really part of her closet at all. Is it odd I've thought of all these possibilities? :S

    Happy weekend!

  23. ha I know what you mean about bloggers wearing the same thing, it just never happens. It's a shame really because it's nice to see how you could style a grament differently.

  24. I agree with you about the re-wearing. It's real! I love your outfit and it's helpful to see how clothing can be reworn in a different way.

  25. LOVE the outfit.
    Okay. it's featured now for the modesty feature.

    Yey!!
    You probably have worn it before but it's still amazing to me!

    I usually brush my hair starting at the bottom and work my way up as it detangles. It works really well that way. Never start brushing hair from the top until you've worked your way up!

  26. When you actually are washing your hair thats when you should de-tangle it. Make sure you lather well till its all smooth.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I totally absolutely agree with you. Who buys clothes just to wear/show them once? Everyone talks about versatility and stuff, so they should let everyone see how they use the same pieces varied into a compeletely different outfit!!!

    I think you're hair looks .. untangled:P Which in my case is impossible since I have curly hair. It's always messy. hm. (that's no advice I know:S)

    Feels so strange writing a comment not being a blogger myself. But I love yours, I found it recently and it's just amazing!!

What's up?
