OOTD : Shopping From My Own Wardrobe

“Ahhh I don’t have anything to wear…!!!” is a universal dialogue of girls. Typically said while they stand in front of their huge wardrobe. Sounds strange but yes that’s the real problem we all face, many a times.

Most of the girls love shopping (yes I have seen some exceptional cases who doesn’t like shopping at all. #SpareMe). We don’t really need an occasion to shop. Do we? But when we have occasion, we never avoid shopping. No matter how special the occasion is, we tend to buy new clothes to dress up.

If you are working lady, you will exactly understand what I am going to say next – During the start of the month we feel like shopping anything and everything. All thanks to the mobile apps who send you constant notifications about the offers and stuffs. Thus, we end up shopping more than what we need. By the end of the month, you might start regretting the money you wasted on the stuffs which you didn’t need. Ironically, if you clean up your wardrobe, there is high chance that you might come across at least a pair of clothes which you haven’t even worn at least once. Don’t you??? I have. **face palm**

So, to be guilt free and to stop wasting money, I have started a new thing, inspired by my favourite @wanderleen – shop from my own wardrobe.

How??? Just pick a piece of cloth and mix and match with different clothes and accessories you already own. Yes. That’s possible.

For example, I love this palazzo. Which I have worn multiple times with multiple tops/ Kurtis without wasting money on different jeans/ bottoms.

You know how we girls are. We buy nail paint/ accessories and then by matching outfit sometimes (trust me that happens sometime). So something similar was supposed to happen with me few days back.

One of my beautiful friends gifted me this beautiful embroidery dupatta. For which, I wanted to buy a plane black kurti. In spite the fact that my wardrobe is 60% filled with black clothes. #TypicalGirlIAm.

As it was a month end and making a hole in already torn out pocket was not at a good idea. So just give it a thought of having a glance at my wardrobe, check whether if something really goes with dupatta. Guess what??? I got this kurti which I had worn for this post. Where I had created a look inspired by Shraddha in the movie Stree.

From my Look book from the blog, found few more mix and match styles.

Styled this kurti in two different ways. One with jacket and one with signature laal(red) dupatta.

Blue crop top – with high waist jeans for office and with pencil skirt for a winter dinner date.

Styled this lehenga in two different way. One with long slit top and one with a blouse to give more festive look.

I am loving this shop from your own wardrobe thing. It’s economic, yet fun. Instead of going to a shop or shopping online, let’s try and shop from our own wardrobe and see how it turns out to be.

Bring out that stylist in you and try and enjoy the styling game. Let me know how it turns out to be.
