Good investments

all items remix'd
top: Banana
dress: Benetton
shoes: Madden Girl
necklace: Jessica Elliot
belt: Ann Taylor

Everything I am wearing today, with the exception of my shoes and belt, are from at least 3 years ago. I've had this top from Banana forever, hadn't worn it in years but didn't want to get rid of it, and finally have been wearing it again.

The dress I bought over 10 years ago! I wore it to the first wedding the hubs and I ever attended together back when we first started dating, so I think it's a good luck charm. I wore it to death when I first bought it, then I became bored with it. Again, it was hanging in my closet for a long time before I started wearing it again.

And the necklace I bought at a Billionaire Babes sample sale (before all those sample sales were online) in the fall of 2007. So I am quite happy that I have managed to make at least some wise purchases in my clothes!

Super cute!! I love those shoes and that belt is really cool! How awesome is that dress too, making it work for so long and in so many different contexts! I hope you're having a great day! :)

Love the shoes - and the idea of "rediscovering" older pieces from your closet!
