Wardrobe Recycle

Hello Chicas,

"A wardrobe full of clothes, but nothing to wear." How many of you can relate to this feeling? Like any of you, even I face this situation while heading out. We all have this irrational fear of repeating outfits. And more so due to the latest trend of documenting every look on the various social media channels. However, we need to put it out there that repeating an outfit is no crime and yes, you will certainly not be hunted down by the fashion police if found wearing that same red dress. All you need is a little recycling and mis-matching to turn your age old outfit into a new one.

So, recently while planning for an event I literally turned my wardrobe upside down to find something new to wear and I got my hands on this lace skirt. Having worn it once before I was skeptical about wearing it again. However, while trying it out I figured another way of wearing it which is as a tube dress. To add some twist to the plain jane dress, I added pompom balls to its hem line. These little colorful balls of happiness are such a mood lifter. They have the power to brighten any look and one just cannot ignore them. Earlier I had made a diy pompom shoe which turned out pretty good and therefore I thought of using them on an outfit. These pompom balls can be easily bought from local fabric stores. Online shopping portals like Amazon and Flipkart also sells packs of multi color pompom balls, but they are charging an exorbitant price for it so I would suggest you to get it from a local shop. Now the only thing you need is to sew them on to your outfit or accessories, I somehow managed it myself but you can take the help of a tailor. And, ta-da you have your very own pompom dress ready.

I have given this outfit a bohemian look by pairing it up with a kimono. This paisley print kimono is my current favorite as it literally goes with everything in my closet. For accessorizing the outfit, I went for layered silver necklaces and some golden bangles. A tan sling bag and tie up heels completed the look.
