Ankara in Autumn

I recently seized an opportunity to wear my custom made ankara skirt again, originally worn here.
Don't you just love wearing your favorite pieces again and again? 
I chuckle to myself whenever I read about a non-celebrity saying that they only wear their clothing pieces one time. Why do I chuckle? Because, I personally ENJOY wearing my clothing multiple times, and restyling my looks! I don't purchase clothing that I have no interest in wearing more than once, unless it's a bridesmaid dress...
Dressing is something that makes me feel happy, something that I anticipate and look forward to. My husband teases me that he knows when I really love a new purchase, because I will wear it at least three times in a row! That would be true of the shoes in today's post. 
I had been looking for the perfect pair of navy pumps, and when these arrived in the mail and I tried them on, I was elated! They are in fact excellently made, and fit my feet like a tight, yet comfortable, leather glove.


Sunnies: Betsey Johnson (worn all the time, everywhere)
Striped sweater: Nordstrom
Ankara skirt: Custom made (also worn here)
Navy blue stilettos: Victoria's Secret online (recently worn here)
Tote: Coach (it's been a staple since this summer)

Now it's your turn, do you look forward to wearing your clothes over and over again?

  1. You pulled this off like only in Joi can do. And I agree...Why buy something with the intention of wearing it once? How wasteful.

  3. I totally agree with you that I love wearing my clothes multiple times, I don't understand when people only wear things once, it's such a waste. Plus I really do enjoy restyling them too and sometimes when I really like the outfit I'll wear it a lot. But yeah your outfit is gorgeous, that skirt is just beautiful, I would totally wear that skirt all the time.

    1. Hi Nina! I can understand receiving an item for review, and then deciding not to wear it again, but otherwise...what in the world?! I enjoy and anticipate opportunities to re-style items from my wardrobe over and over again, plus I then repeat my favorite combinations time and again. Thank you!!

  9. What is the point in having stuff and not wearing them, huh?! Makes no sense! Good for you, wear them 3, 4, 5 times. I do the same with favorite items.
