Day 3- A Closet Full of Goodies!

The Nipped-at-the-Waist White Dress

As promised and mentioned yesterday, I am endeavoring to not purchase any new clothing, shoes, or jewelry for 365 days. This is day 3 and, phew, it hasn't been easy. Just kidding. No problems yet. The real trouble sets in when I'm out shopping for a client. All this good stuff is just IN MY FACE screaming, "BUY ME! I'M SO CUTE AND YOU WILL BE CUTE, TOO, IF YOU ARE WEARING ME!"

Anyhoo, I'll be out for a client later this week so I'll have a real opportunity to test my resolve. In the meantime, I've put together an outfit based on things currently in my closet that are on trend for this transition/spring time.

The nipped-in-at-the-waist white dress is on trend and speaks to the feminine, sophisticated look shown on the runways. I have one in my closet from a couple of years ago- eyelet, not lace like the one I've pictured here but pretty close. I also have a cute cropped leopard print jacket with 3/4 sleeves. I'm picturing a leopard belt at the waistline with the jacket (matchy is in!) and some colorful shoes. I have some close-toed raspberry pumps as well as some deep green peep-toes. I think either will work well. Of course, I won't be bare legged, especially this time of year, so I'll wear my old standby, the nude fishnets. Et Voila! The perfect transition to spring outfit made entirely of things I already own. I'll snap a real picture when I actually wear this...
