In previous posts I’ve written about how shopping your closet can help you to explore new ways to wear your clothing. I’ve also talked about how you can save a ton of money doing it as well! The holiday season is fast approaching and we all know how expensive holiday party dresses can be. Instead of buying a new dress this season, why not recycle one of your holiday party dresses? We all know that what goes around comes around in fashion. So it goes without saying that you’ll definitely be able to dust off one of your old dresses for this year’s parties! When it’s time to clean out my closet, I have a few rules I like to follow when deciding what to keep or give away. One of them is that if I paid through the nose for the item, then I have to think more than twice before I give it away. LOL!
The dress I’m wearing today is a Black Halo dress I bought back in 2009. Yep, you read that right…I bought it back in 2009! Black Halo is a brand that’s well known for making clothing that’s classic. You can wear a Black Halo dress forever! I love this dress SO much that I haven’t had the heart to give it away. I’ve always been good at taking care of my clothing so it’s in pristine condition. What I love the most about this dress is that it’s simple, yet sexy. The neckline really makes it stand out. Simple jewelry is all you really need for a classic dress like this one, so I didn’t accessorize much.
Here’s my look:

I’m not sure I’ll EVER want to give this dress away. LOL! Before you start looking online and in stores for your holiday dresses, make sure you check your closet first. You never know what treasures you might find in there!
Will you be recycling one of your holiday party dresses this holiday season?
Until next time…
