Going Out/Conference Formal/Social outing Look – Recycling Pieces to make the most of your Wardrobe

Happy Monday!

Today I’m bringing you a new outfit post featuring recycled pieces that you might have seen on the blog before (Ie. in this holiday outfit post HERE). Since I’ve spent a lot of traveling lately, my bank account is crying right now… so I decided to recycle pieces to create a whole different look!
In this outfit, I wore the bright red lace top I featured  before, with a black bandage mini skirt from Topshop from a few years ago! The outfit was simple and I wore my favorite Nine West heels that I have worn at conferences and are comfy enough to wear for a few hours. This is an outfit you can wear to a conference social (I wouldn’t wear this to give a talk, but for getting drinks after the conference is over, I think it’s fine!).
The accessories make the outfit shine, and I am rewearing one of my favorite bracelets, the Tassel Bracelet from the Yayoi Collection from Boyajian Trend Gallery, and a rhinestone bracelet from H&M I believe (given to me by my friend Samira!).
I used my little black pocketbook that doubles as a wallet from Express. and I curled my hair using my flat iron. If you are paying attention to my social media, I did cut my hair recently, so this was taken before I cut my hair (and I’m missing my long hair! T_T), but I will have some tutorials soon about styling short hair for the lab!
The best thing about this outfit? I didn’t spend a dime, and I created a somewhat different look/look for a different occasion.

Top: Red Lace Top Target | Skirt: Top Shop | Heels: Nine West | Accessories: Bracelet: H&M, Tassel Bracelet: Yayoi Collection from Boyajian Trend Gallery, Sunglasses: Forever 21; Purse: Express

What do you think about this outfit?

Would you wear it to a social networking event? Yes or no? 

I’m obsessed with red and black, I just think they go so well together!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!



PS. I am trying to do one post a week and a youtube video a week – so stay tuned, trying to get my youtube channel up and running! Give me a follow! xo

    I love red and black, dear Andrea, and lace as well! You look stunning! You are so right, to an event, drinks after a conference, yes, very good, for a talk not. You are really so classy! I am sure that your account will be soon fine again, and then you will go to new adventures! Not only, conferences as well, but anyway, combining work and adventures is a good thing 🙂 I loved the bracelet with the tassel!
