CLOSET CONFIDENTIAL TAG (I tagged myself. Don't judge me!)
|haha! I laugh just looking at this picture! I love this outfit! Can you tell?|
Disclaimer: I did not have enough time to iron these because my boyfriend only had a few minutes to take the pictures. I was in a RUSH!
1. What is the oldest item in your closet?
The oldest item is from middle school! You heard correctly- MIDDLE SCHOOL! I still love it! Me and my sister were probably the worst dressed student in our entire school. Way ahead of our time, but we could care less. I always loved the way I dressed. I remember one nasty girl used to always tell me that I dressed bad. Believe it or not, she tried to befriend me on facebook a few years back. Hello, we were not friends, so no, we are not going to be "facebook friends" either. Why do people do that? Life is too short! Joanna and I got a lot of our clothes from the 70's aka estate sales. This is a top that got fought over a lot because we both really loved it. I am surprised I can still wear it! The tag fell off. It got worn a LOT.
2. What is the newest item?
I have a ton of new items, but my favorite new item is a pair of brand spankin new jeans! They are 7 for all mankind which is not one of my favorite brands, but this pair fits perfect. I feel like it is a brand that everyone loves, so I feel like I should love it. They just don't normally fit right. This pair has a 36 inseam which is great because I need at least 34 in most brands. I am wearing them now, and they are so comfortable.
3. What is the most expensive item?
This is a hard one because I don't buy expensive clothes. I am a goodwill and TJ Maxx shopper. Anything that comes from other stores is bought for me by my sisters or boyfriend. My most expensive item is a dress that my sister bought for me. It was $100 dollars. I normally wait for things to go on sale, and I can afford to wait because as the years go on, I have less and less competition for my size. I have a lot of expensive dresses that I waited 6 plus months to get, and they waited at the store for me to buy them!
I love lace, and I love the color black, so this is a win win!

4. What is the cheapest item?
I am a bargain shopper. Almost everything in my closet is "the cheapest item"! I did get two major cheapos last week. One was a gift from my sister. It is a jean shirt from Lucky Brand, and it is amazing. She shrunk it and had to get rid of it! I have been looking for a light jean colored shirt for many moons so I am so happy to have it! I have worn it 3 times in a week. Bad I know! My next cheapy was a Chip and Pepper (one of my favorite brands) tank top. I got it at Goodwill for a dollar. It looked sort of 70's, and it is they super thin cotton that I love.

5. What is the biggest bargain?
I have a pair of jeans that changed the way I look at jeans forever. I wish I had 100 pairs because I love them so much. They are from Frankie B which in my humble opinion is the greatest jeans brand on the face of the earth. Their jeans are made for me. They could not fit better if they were custom made. I got my first pair about five years ago, and I have worn them once a week for that entire time. I got them on sale for $30 bucks! I wore them so much that I am about to rip one of the seams. I have been looking for the same pair on ebay, but so far no luck. These are my all time holy grail jeans. If you have known me for more than a week, you have seen me in them. I can't wait until I have enough money to buy more of this brand! If I was rich, I would have one of everything they make!
|Frankie B! Best jeans EVER!|
6. What is the biggest waste of money?
My biggest waste of money is high heels. I say it generally because I hate them. I hate them. I HATE THEM! Every pair I own is awful. To be honest, I feel like a drag queen wearing heels. Not that dragqueens aren't fabulous, but I am already 5' 10, they make me tower over everyone. Plus they hurt my feet. I hate wearing shoes as it is, so heels just suck even more. The green pair is Ralph Lauren, the other 3 pairs are Jessica Simpson. Stay away.

BONUS QUESTION- What are the three favorite items right now?
Ok, I cheated! The first one is an outfit! I love authentic 80's clothing. If I come across an old 80's piece that fits me (at goodwill, see the trend), I HAVE TO HAVE IT! That is where I got this awesome shirt! The brand is Banjo from Dallas Texas. How could I pass that up? The pants are from H&M, and the shoes are Keds. I am not going to wait for an 80's party to wear this gem. I sometimes put it on just to line dance around the house. I think I was meant to be a Texan. I love me some line dancing, and I love Texas!
See the window in the background? That is where a creepy kid WATCHES ME! All day every day. I am sure he got an eye-full today! I am not a kid person, and for some reason that just attracts them more...
The next pair of pants was a gift from my boyfriend (he hates them), but he was nice enough to get them for me anyways. I have been wanting flower pants for years, but I was never able to find them in my size. Alas, I finally found them at Marshalls. These are Bullhead Black which I have never heard of, but they fit nicely. I wore them for Easter this year, and I can't wait to wear them again! The instructions were to just get the pants in the shot, but my skin belt is also showing!
The last item is in my favorite print! Leopard print! I was trying to decide my favorite color the other day, (don't ask me why because I don't know) and I was thinking leopard print is my favorite color. I know it is a mixture of colors, but it is fantastic! I have been loving shapeless clothing lately, and this is so cute!
