A lot of pieces from I Dress for the Applause’s wardrobe including clothes, shoes and accessories are worn more than once in the posts. It doesn’t mean I don’t own anything apart from the ones that are featured in the posts or I’m too lazy. The reason is that I invest in stuff that goes with a lot of looks. There was a time when I rarely used to repeat a dress. In fact I was known for it. Probably that was due to my lack of experience. And that led to quite a huge collection of outfits and accessories with no space to store them. And every piece was too good to part ways with.
As I grew, I realized there isn’t always a need to shop something for every occasion. I learnt to style every piece differently without making them look repetitive. It’s so inspiring when even style icons like Olivia Palermo don’t shy away from recycling their wardrobe. I feel it’s all about pairing things interestingly every time and challenging yourself to not repeat the entire look – the same dress with the same jacket or scarf, the same top with the same skirt, denims or palazzos. Unfortunately, I do come across a lot of people doing that, which is quite sad. I think it all comes down to how much one enjoys dressing up. Also when shopping, I always go by what the legendary Karl Lagerfeld said- “Buy what you don’t have yet, or what you really want, which can be mixed with what you already own. Buy only because something excites you, not just for the simple act of shopping.” Be wise.
Coming to this look, I’m wearing all of my favorite colors – Black, White and grey with my comfy lace-up shoes.
Currently listening to Godless by The Dandy Warhols and so damn addicted to it!
