Recreating an Old Outfit



I was wearing this navy and white striped tee recently, and it reminded me of the tee I wore in my senior photos. Of course, my reaction was to try and recreate the photoshoot outfit with the clothing currently in my wardrobe.







The only original item from the outfit I still had was the denim thing. We had a discussion about what I'm supposed to call it. Is it a jumper? An overalls miniskirt? A denim thing? There's no consensus. I've also switched from baggy flares to skinnies over the years, though I did still have those black pants from the original photos right up until we moved to China. I wore them all the time during beauty school days.

Oh wait, I still have the watch, too, but it needs a new battery and I forgot to wear it in the new set of photos. I wore my fork bracelet instead. Close enough.



I remembered that the photographers had scrunched me up into some sort of weird position full of lots of angles--this last shot was my attempt at recreating it. I was kinda-sorta close, but I should have been facing the other direction--haha!

Turns out my style hasn't changed all that much. I still love this outfit. The differences between the photos can all be attributed to the difference brought about by 7 years and my current lack of a professional makeup artist, hairstylist, and photographer. Wouldn't those be convenient to keep on hand?

  3. You look great in both and I wouldn't have noticed the difference in hair and makeup if you hadn't said anything.

  10. I love your outfit! Very cute. It is interesting how an outfit you wore 7 years ago can still be something worn today and still look good.

  13. Your outfit is SO cute--both of them! I like the idea of recreating an old favorite. Having the signature denim "thing" definitely helps!
