Tangerine pick

I am the first to say that you use items according to your needs. If you follow labels, where does that leave your creativity? For example if you think that a vase fulfils your need of a pitcher, then use it as one. If you want to use your rain boots as a vase, then do so.  
With this in mind I have worn this gingham garment as a dress and pijamas. I don't know what it is. So I wore it during the day as a dress after a fun morning at the beach and then slept init. I wore the garment for what I needed, here to pick tangerines.
If you limit yourself to what the garment was originally intended to be, you do not give yourself room to explore and to get more out of that garment.  If you don't believe me, see how I wore a vintage embroidered satin night gown and landed a seat a few rows behind the first lady ;) 

One polo shirt 6 ways

I love polo shirts but, I don't wear them much. This one in particular dates from at least 2010. The thick cotton, the fit and the colour all are dear to me. Now that I think of it I don't know how "dear" it really is when it's been worn about 7 times in 8 years.
Anyways, one of those nights I get pumped up with wanting to do laundry I placed this polo shirt with a red pair of jeans. It got stained. I washed it again, nothing. Then again with some stain remover, then washed it by hand and there was a pink shadow right below the last button. 
So I wore it once more with these overalls, which have been my afternoon go to piece, and gave it one last wear. 
What was the last thing you stained? Where you able to remove the stain ?



Healthy Reason

It's April 2013 and I am shopping on line, for 13.80 USD this F21 top is all mine. Four years went by and it's been worn at least 14 times. The top has held up perfectly considering it's from Forever 21 and that it's always been machine washed. Colours are bright as the first day. These days I am not loving how open the scoop neck and at 0.98 cents cost per wear plus so many other things coming into the closet, its healthy to let go. Sometimes all you need to let go it to give yourself a reason. 

What was the reason you edited an item from your closet ?

Below are a few of the ways I wore it: skirt, shorts, blue and coloured denim.
