Not New

 Sweatshirt: Proenza Schouler x NM x Target (old), Sequin skirt: H&M (old), Leopard print sneakers: H&M (recent), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, random earrings, Marc x Marc Jacobs watch, Alisa Michelle, Club Monaco wrap and vintage bracelets, Catbird NYC and Lulu Frost number rings

I'm more proud of this outfit than any other simply because I'm wearing so many older pieces from my closet. They're not so old that they look ratty but they're not new so I know I didn't "splurge" on anything (OK, except for the sneakers that I debuted here...). Remixing older pieces from the closet is not revolutionary but I love the challenge of changing up a look. The glam factor of this skirt is mellowed by my sweatshirt and sneakers. I'm perpetually in love with contrasting glam and grunge and feminine and masculine pieces. It's the juxtaposition that makes it good.
