Treasures of Lost...

Inspired by today's Fashion Blanket's blog entry (http://fashionblanket.blogspot.com/), I decided to gather all my bravery and rummage through my closet (and eventually my step-mom's and brother's). I mean why not right? Jennifer (from fashion blanket) found a great jean dress in her's. I left her the comment, and I quote [myself] lol:
"closet digging is quite the sport... good can only come from it. One can A. find buried treasures of lost or B. relieve themselves of a painful history (outfit) lol in this particular case you have uncovered a gem!"
I might as well live by my own words, eh?And I must say, I found a few gems! In my step mom's closet, I found a great gray voluminous mini-skirt and in my brother's closet I uncovered an amazing black blazer that he, to my great delight, has grown out of (yay)! All of the other pieces in the following photographs are mine... and with a little luck and elbow grease I was able to come up with an three outfits (minor variances in the outwear) that I am quite proud of!


Unfortunately, I took photos that I am not proud of hah!
My usual photographer, my 11 year old brother was MIA! :(


(Tank, Old Navy. Skirt, Gianni Bini. Tights, Target. Wedges, Old Navy.)

Variance: (Black Vest, Urbanoutfitters.)

Variance: (Black Blazer, Brother's Closet... not a brand, but literally hehe)
I also bought an amazing pant romper with suspenders...sounds weird, but its cute I promise! I'll post the picks as soon as I wear it.
