NOT LIKE THE MOVIES

5:06:00 PM






muddy tank by (X)SML  .  light brown maxi dress  .  tribal necklace  .  vintage belt

I'm not sure if it is only in the movies, but some girls lavishly shop for clothes they would only wear once. Twice is a no go. I definitely am not that type as on the contrary, the only clothes I would shop are those I can wear a gazillion times! It's a challenge to wear an item in many different ways and not look boring, isn't it? 

Though I'm speaking generally, this tank top is a particular example. Still remember how I wore this "muddy tank" with shorts? To a blogger meet-up last week, I put it on over a light brown maxi dress and belted it to accentuate my hips and lengthen my legs. 

I'm not in any way ashamed, in fact I'm so proud that I might as well begin counting how many styles I can come up with for the same item. Haha, forgive me for being dramatic, but I can conclude that the more versatile an item is, the better buy it is!

  32. I knew a girl who bought clothes and wore them once. It was such a waste. I'm very practical with what I buy. I love mixing up items and wearing them differently.
