When I left my college apartment for my parents' house I decided to "pack light" and by pack light I mean only bring the outfit I was wearing. I seriously hate packing. Anyway it's always a fun challenge to find clothing around the house for me to wear! Today's outfit was the product of finding old clothes and trying to make them work:
Wrong choice of shoes, but the only pair I brought :(
Hat- my dad's
T-shirt- I've had since I was 9/10
Slacks- I've had since I was 12
Earrings- my mom's
When I opened my old closet I expected it to be full of old traditional African clothing, and it was, but also something amazing happened! As I was reaching up to an old box of books three items came raining down on my head. I was annoyed for a moment until I discovered they were hats! Awesome hats that I've never seen before. Were they my mom's? My dad's? I didn't know, but they were glorious! Unfortunately I have an unusually small head and none of them fit, but I used my mom's scarf and wrapped it around my head a few times for cushioning haha.
My pants are another story. I found them in a tub under my bed...right where they belong! These pants caused me a lot of distress in middle school. While everyone else had trendy flared pants, I had these baggy, pleated slacks and I definitely got teased for them! Now? I still hate them, but not enough to not wear them when I'm desperately in need of clothing!
I'm slowly starting to like my short hair, it makes hats look so much better!
Have you guys ever resurrected old clothing that you never thought you'd wear again?
