Closet Confidential Tag: The Blogger Version
I have seen this popular tag on YouTube a lot lately and it seemed like it would be a fun tag to do. I thought about recording it and uploading the video to YouTube. Then I remembered I kinda suck at making and editing videos so I figured I would do the blogger version of it instead. Sometimes its good to know when to stay in your own lane. So come a little closer and lets get confidential.
1. What is the oldest item in your closet?
The oldest item in my closet is a bracelet that my grandmother owned as a young adult. She gave it to me when I was in high school and it is still one of my favorite vintage pieces.
2. What is the newest item?
The newest item is this mesh black skater skirt that I purchased at H&M while on vacation in Dallas. I instantly fell in love with it’s grandeur and decided it was a must have item for my wardrobe. It was $50 which is a bit pricey! Luckily I know it is an item that I will wear for ages. I love a full circle skirt!
3. What is the most expensive item?
Next to my wedding ring, the most expensive item in my wardrobe is probably my Henri Bendel No. 7 Quilted Satchel. I received it as Christmas gift nearly 3 years ago from my husband. It is still one of my favorite handbags. It cost around $300 at the time which was a huge splurge according to my standards.
P.S. Aren’t my nieces adorable?
4. What’s the biggest bang for your buck?
T-shirts are a staple in my wardrobe and always the greatest bang for the buck. They are so inexpensive ranging anywhere from $3-10 and I can pretty much wear them with anything!
5. What was the biggest bargain?
I think my Ralph Lauren and Levi’s jeans that I got from the Goodwill were probably the biggest bargain. They were only $5 a piece and they fit like a glove in the hips which is rare!
6. What’s an item in your closet that everyone hates, but you love?
I love love love my Steve Madden studded combat boots. My husband, mom, and best friends hate them! They have pleaded with me not to wear them anymore but I couldn’t bare to part with them. They are extremely comfortable and edgy. I seriously do not understand their objection.
7. What was the biggest waste of money?!
The biggest waste of money in my wardrobe were high heels. I recently eliminated about 20 pairs of heels from my closet due to the height. It surprised me how many shoes I had with 5 inch heels! Unfortunately I can no longer wear heels that high due to an ankle injury from a nasty fall I took years ago. I fell down some stairs at my grandmother’s house and I ended up in a boot. I was being crazy and decided to take the boot off 2 days later because it was too uncomfortable to work 12 hr shifts in it. So instead I hobbled around for weeks and as a result my ankle never healed properly. In retrospect, that probably wasn’t the brightest idea and I knew better. I am a registered nurse after all- at least thats what my license says. Now I have to wear heels with a height of 3.75 or less. They don’t make me feel unstable or like my ankle is going to give out at any moment.
