Forgotten In My Closet

I swear my closet is a treasure trove of surprises! As I was cleaning it out and doing the mandatory summer to winter swap, I came across this top that I had purchased this past summer at a 50% off sale...

I got it for something like $22 - or was it $12? Either way it was a bargain. While the oversized style isn't something I usually go for, the not quite olive color, super soft fabric and details made me fall for it. I had only worn it once and then it disappeared into the depths of that all too small space of a wardrobe.

(Back view.) I love the rusching down the back, it sort of becomes skeletal. To top it all off, it's so comfortable which, after a few weeks of crazy allergies, is exactly what I've been needing.

So what amazing finds have you lost and refound in your closet?

Wow! That is a phenomenal top - I am so glad that you refound it; it looks amazing on you! I recently refound a Forever 21 tweed double-breasted Grandpa sweater/cardigan that I bought over a year ago, wore once, and promptly forgot about. Now I can't take it off!! :)

I also have this little "corner of a closet" where all the best pieces are hiding from me, hehe. I love finding them and wearing them as new ones :). The dress is really nice, specially in the back :).

Hey babe, LOVE that top, the ruche detailing is amazing, and I am guilty of the same "sin" too, overcrowded closet and when it's time to cleaning up, I would usually find lots of items that hasn't been worn :), guilty as charged :))

Wishing you a beautiful day

XOXO

I love re-finding things in my closet and it happens all the time. Mostly because I have too much clothes :( haha any way, I love this olive green top on you! Complements your hair colour and I love the way it drapes.

I'm trying so hard to have a proper clear out but i find it so hard to be ruthless, which is really what i need to be

I love slouchy tops with fitted bottoms-- what a great find! I've been discovering shoes in my closet lately, particularly heels from past seasons that I never got around to wearing. I'm still trying to get up the nerve to wear them with cute socks!

Yes here it's really cold but... do you live in Texas ??? Oh gosh I could kill to go there !!! :D You're really lucky, I would like to visit that place one day.
By the way it's great to wear warm winter clothes but sometimes walk in the snow with high heels it's an hard thing to do XD aghaah.

I love your blog, it's really nice and you have such a great sense of style, well done !
