What for ?

We are so acustomed to being told what to do
with whatever we have around that in
my opinion it numbs your creativity.
Antilia Femme dress worn as top - Jeans Zara - Brown flats Franco Sarto
For example, you buy a product and the indications tell
you what it is for and what you are supposed to do with it.

Brown tote bag Coach - Brown stretch belt Forever 21 - Brown sunglasses Michael Kors 
Unless its something very specific, at the end you can 
make of it whatever you want.  For example, I needed 
to induce sleep during a flight so I took cough syrup.
I was knocked out before departure.
At the end you use things the way you want.
Broken plates can be used to signal a garden.
Earrings can be used as shoe clips.
A necklace can be shortened with an earring.
Possibilities are endless. 
Or it can be something very basic as wearing a 
dress as a top.

Dear Lorena, so true what you wrote! We really should think out of the box and I like it to use things in other ways as purposed :) Love your plaid shirt btw!

I'm wearing a nightgown as a shirt today! I love it! Wise words.

Very wise words - we are limited by our own imagination in the end :)

I like the dress worn as a top - I've done that a few times, good way to get more wear from something :)

I like this idea a lot -- and you prove it beautifully with the dress/top.

That dress as a tunic looks fantastic on you Lorena!


Kim Alston said...

Yep! People need to start thinking out the box.

Plaid shirt is OK, it is really nice daily look, but white belt would be better than brown I think.

I think we have a problem where there are so many things created for a singular use, and we just feed into that and end up with a ton of clutter.

That is so immensely true! I think it's very vintage (specifically, "make do and mend" from the war years) to adopt a creative, outside-of-the-box approach to our possessions as well.

Great outfit! Tunic length tops rarely work on me, but gosh, do I enjoy seeing them on others.

Have a fantastic week, my friend!
