Something Old, Something New…

While cleaning and sorting inventory the other day I came across an old favorite from Last Call. The whole LC outfit is named Marguerite and I always loved it. Beautiful textures and design, the trademark of Ginny Talamasca. I confess I am guilty of wearing mostly new acquisitions …probably because I forget what I have buried in the deep recesses of my closet!  Oh, so here was the perfect opportunity to put it  (the top at least) together with one of my new favorites from Coco, the Party Dress.  Since the Last Call top is transparent I added under it the top part of another old favorite from Ghost! by Triangle Caudron. (Ghost! is no longer around but Triangle is and has a new store called Triangle so go see it for some of the most imaginative design on the grid.)  A recent purchase was the Goth Necklace from Fashionably Dead….I love the multiple chains and the length. The sash is taken from Day Dream from Sweetest Goodbye, which I modified slightly. I found this clutch bag at +plus and if you haven’t been there you should go, lots of really great goodies there. Anyway after a hard day of cleaning inventory I was happy with this look and have resolved to continue to incorporate older items from my inventory into my daily wardrobe. Those that have the quality and the style will stay in the closet and the others that haven’t stood the test of time will be weeded out and *gasp* deleted.  The point is don’t forget the some of the old favs……bring them out and have fun!
