Everything old becomes new again.

dress: C & C California (3 years old!); sweater: Sleeping on Snow (bought last year for $22 at Anthropologie!); shoes: BCBG Girls (goin' on 4 years...super comfy and re-heeled twice!); necklace: Express (purchased with my sweet employee discount 5+ years ago)
floral top: French Connection (bought on major clearance at Bloomie's 2 years ago!); sweater: H & M (cute, cheap and 3 years old); pencil skirt: Express (another great employee purchase from 5 years back!) shoes: Madden Girl (God love DSW, still cute after 2 years)
blouse: Express (Ruffles. Been lovin' 'em for years!); sweater: Banana Republic ( a timeless classic bought last year); Express pencil skirt; shoes: Arturo Chang (my big shoe splurge last fall...can't wait to rock these with tights this year!)
dress: Jovovich/Hawk for Target (Twenty bucks two years ago!); sweater: (bought at The Garment District in Fort Collins, CO in 2001, pricey, but obviously worth it!); belt: Express (5+ years old and still awesome); boots: Fornarina (I have these in black, too. I'm normally against duplicates, but these are comfortable, versatile and my Shoe Girl at Nordstrom gave me an AWESOME deal!)
floral top: still French Connection and still one of my favorite pieces!; skirt: Gap (circa 2003, can you believe? A birthday gift from Aunt Patti); belt: came with a twenty dollar dress from Forever 21!; shoes: Aldo (purchased 2+ years ago, a black patent peep toe stiletto will ALWAYS be fabulous!)

I've been really in to trying to make the most of my wardrobe lately. A true fashionista, I've never cared much for the trends. I like to be current, but more important, I like to be me. I know what works for me. I know what works for you, too. It's great to love fashion and hit the streets in the hottest trends, but if those hot trends don't make you look your best, go back to the drawing board! I'm very sentimental about my clothes, so I've been reworking my oldies-but-goodies in Fashionista-turns-Recessionista style and I'm loving it! Check it out!
