What I Wore: Quiet Sunday, Busy Monday

Leandra Medine | November 29, 2011
t shirt: Sandro, sweater: Alexander Wang, green jeans: J Brand, booties: Chanel, purse: Antik Batik

Taken with my iPhone by Amelia “no brain” Diamond to bring an element of realness to the proverbial equation. Barn doors rock. But back to the title of this post. What I wore: quiet Sunday, Busy Monday…and…just a regular Tuesday! Do you know where I’m going with this? It’s pretty straight forward. Today will mark the third straight day I’ve worn this outfit. But as I say, when you feel an outfits right, you know, really really right, bask in the glory of sartorial victory and the personal satisfaction of celebrating your capability and knowledge to style yourself properly and then wear said outfit into the ground. Not literally, though. That may tamper with the prospect of continuing the marathon into, oh I don’t know, day five, six, seven? Ultimately, you see, clothes are purchased to be worn. This is an important lesson to re-instill just after what I will call a cyber-Monday of epic proportion. Now let it be known, freaks and geeks, chronic outfit repeating is the new black. That said, did you score anything yesterday? Tell me. I have to know. Bye!

    I love that sweater. Need it!

    I'm not a big fan of the white t-shirt sticking out, but apart from that I think this is a great outfit that deserves to be worn often 🙂
    And I agree, no point in spending a lot of money if its just hanging around in the closet

    I love the idea of wearing an outfit repeatedly. I actually wore the same dress Sunday and Monday, I just couldn't get enough. Love it!

    There's nothing like wearing an outfit you truly love, over and over again. Instant gratification. x

    Perfect sweater. Gorgeous outfit, as always.

  • http://www.injackiesshoes.blogspot.com Alexandra

    I love knowing that you, too, have a "uniform." Because your closet rocks, but sometimes you just need to have a go to outfit that gets the job done. Even if it's super-stylish, involving Chanel high-heeled booties, and five different layers of hipness. Love it. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration!

    thank you!! i'm wearing a particular dress twice this week. i'm lucky that no one else will be seeing me repeat fashion so close together, but even if i weren't, i would still do it.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/12918661464750203232 Doni Brown

    I love this post! I repeat my outfits all the time. Most people in fashion blogging try to create the illusion of never wearing the same mixture of pieces twice. I don't believe them and you are the most genuine blogger I've seen in a long time! Thanks for giving us your heart and for sharing the details that make you relatable.

    Luhfff you and luhhffff this because for once high enders get the AOK to do what us everyday ladies are forced to…reutilize! I'm sorry but I'll rock an outfit until it rears up and rocks back at me. unless your town has only 300 ppl in it, its fair game

    this is why i love you.. You're so fucking real it's ridiculous! love it. So right with this whole outfit repeat. People are way too uptight.

  • ddferg

    A twist on the old saying "If it aint' broke, don't fix it" — If it's fabulous, don't fix it." Thank you for making outfit repetition a fashion "DO". With Cy-Mon sapping all your fashion hootzpah (sp?) yesterday, a reliable repeat is what the couture doc ordered . Now, how about the smell factor? Answer me that.

    ha ha ha, I love this! I love the outfit and the re-wearing of the outfit. Can't tell you how many times I've done this. Thanks to pointing out how "awesome" re-wearing a seemingly perfect outfit can be! Love your blog!

    haha you're the best! i wanna try this three day thing… but i think you still might be the only person who could pull such a thing off

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/14371433092789684093 kbezona

    My Gosh!

    It happens to me that when I came back to work with the same outfit I wore the day before, people often thinks Ive NOT SLEPT IN MY OWN HOUSE THAT NIGHT(you know what I mean)…

    I dont know exactly if thats a man repeller or not: same outfit = self conficence but a little of "get-laid-smell-in-the-air". What do you think? Is it really a good idea? XDDDD

    PD: spanish freak in here, sorry for my freak english!

    I love how ashamed you are to admitting that you've worn the same outfit three days in a row! Sometimes I do the same thing but I don't tell anyone! Ha!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/01018559049239753554 libby

    i love wearing the same outfit multiple days in a row. especially when its comfy. i usually do saturday/sunday/monday so that no one at work will know i'm repeating the outfit!

    I have done that where I wear the same outfit a few days in a row, especially if I'm not going to see any of the same people. Hey, if something's that good it's worth repeating and lady those green pants are definitely worth repeating!

    I definitely do the same, but not three days in a row. LoL. But i definitely agree with your philosophy. I definitely wear my favorite leopard print dress every chance I get, but always in a slightly different way. Never wear the same dress, twice. No Way. That's way too boring.
