Memo 240: Something Old and Blue


Before my days as the online influencer and personal style blogger of The Werk! Place, I used to have outfits on reserve for any occasion lined up and ready to go. Not so much, these days. As a regular and consistent shopper, I loathe the idea of scrambling for an outfit at the last minute. I mean, who wants that kind of stress and pressure in their lives?

Well, having to create look after look from my own closet has depleted the reserve of looks that I so proudly boasted having pre-blog. I know I can still come out of my closet for the most part but it requires a bit more werk to create something completely new.
Well, last weekend, I had another wedding and was all lined up to purchase some new pieces until I remembered this embellished flower dress from ASOS. I’ve literally never worn it and knew it would be perfect for a Spring Wedding. I definitely went for a Sixties vibe by adding the blue three-quarter length chevron coat which I adorned with a little brooch party and the Chanel cap-toe pumps.
Winner! Just a simple reminder to shop your closet even when you think there’s nothing there.
