I like slow fashion and homegrown vintage. Here are some of my favorite old looks, re-worn in 2015.
Whenever I wear my sex-ay Pilgrim dress by Donald Brooks Couture, I enjoy it so much that I wear it again almost immediately. I originally wore the dress in 2004 to the Committee to Protect Journalists awards dinner, followed by a Golden Globes party in early 2005.
I got the vintage dress from eBay for $60: one of my best bargains ever.
I usually show special-occasion outfits for this kind of post because casual clothes are too easy. I mean, I can wear the same casual look three times in one week. But here’s one casual look with the same top and shorts by JC de Castelbajac, seen in October 2014 and March 2015. Both times, I wore Prada shoes from 2011.
I like to wear my Castelbajac sailor outfit for the 4th of July, though I’ve worn it other times too. Here’s how it looked this July … and on four previous occasions.

I wear this 2004 Versace kilt and knit top a lot.
Even Halloween costumes get repeated around here!
My, how time flies!
