True story: Once upon a time, I only wore matching suits like today's post. I was so afraid that if I didn't wear them at the same time, they would fade differently and then my suit would be mismatched. Today, my fear didn't come back. I was just plain old lazy. So to make the my outfit a little more fun, I added some pink accents.
So I want to let you in a little secret on buying suits from some of my favorite stores like Ann Taylor, White House Black Market and The Limited. They tend to make suits with the same material season after season. So if you do not have the money to invest in a suit, you can wait and add to it year after year. Typically each year, they will make it in a new style. This is also a great way to take a chance and wait till it goes on super clearance to add to your suit.
If you wear suits to work, do you tend to wear them together or are you pretty good at mixing and matching your various suits?
If you are still reading, you must be wondering - what's up with the New Old Purse title. Why here's another true story....
True Story: This purse was bought over 8 or 9 years ago. And today is the 1st time I am using it. When I bought the purse, I thought it was the perfect combination of colors and I could wear it with everything. Then when I got it home, I realized a white purse is not ideal for a messy person like me and wanted to return the purse. Somehow I forgot to return it and I guess I've let this purse age like a fine wine. Thank goodness even at my younger days, I was wise enough to buy a not so trendy purse.
That's all the stories I have for you today. I would love to hear some of your true fashion stories.
