Monster Closet

Blue jean dress DKNY, similar - Green cardigan 525 America, similar - Light blue bow shoes Gio Zanotti -
Grey bag Ferragamo

For some weird reason I feel like my closet has taken control over me and there is nothing I can do. It's like a monster that asks to be fed with new items, one that is always hungry.
I did a three month shopping ban that worked quite well in terms of acquisitions but not so with the organising the closet idea. At the end its a cycle that keeps on going: since the closet is not organised I keep bringing in new things, like these light blue shoes purchased last month, which by the way, have gotten so much wear, that the CPW is at about 2.57 USD.

Why I wear my tops backwards


Black cardigan INC International Concepts - Leopard print top Da Moda, similar  - Jeans Liz Claiborne -
Cap toe flats Zara, similar - Black vintage bag Croft & Barrow - Brown sunglasses Michael Kors, similar 

If there is one thing I like to do is wear my tops on backwards. 

I've done this with tops and dresses several times in the past. 

Most of the times I have done this because:

  • Neckline is too low, as in too revealing for the occasion as in to work, example here 
  • Want to use it as a backdrop for layering a necklace, like here 
  • Looking for a more relaxed look, Instead of buttoning up the back, just wear unbuttoned to the front,  did it here 
  • Max my looks when traveling, wear it in the morning to as a layering piece and then in a more formal way for the evening like I did here , showcasing a brooch.
  • Maximises my overall wardrobe !
Have you worn your top backwards intentionally and if so why ?

Bow on the back

Black dress with white bow Cable & Gauge - similar under 15.00 USD and this one for 12.00 USD
Brown and blue vintage bag Moschino - very similar via Poshmark - Black heels Christian Siriano for Payless

This black dress has been hanging in the closet since February last year, tags on. Today I wore it for the very first time. Its lightweight, has a good length and looks ok from the front, but the back I am not too sold on, the bow seems frumpy and now after just one wear I am wondering if I should have even bought it..
