When I first began Designing From My Closet I soon realized how important it was to stay true to myself. As much as I love looking at the latest trends, I never want to loose sight of my authentic style. Sometimes this means wearing pieces that are not from the current season.  That is precisely why I keep certain items in my wardrobe for many years and why I purchase second hand.Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

This dark blue laser cut midi skirt is a recent addition to my closet via the SBR Pop Up I attended several weeks ago in LA. I got this Mynt 1792 beauty from the gorgeous Nicolette Mason (yes, I got to meet her!) It is circa 2014, but for me, it translates perfectly to the here and now and more importantly, fits my personal aesthetic.Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

I recently posted on Instagram three ways how I was planning on styling this new-to-me skirt. For its first time out to play I chose to pair it with a boxy quilted top in white that I recently purchased at Old Navy. I love the snake embossed texture on the front and the stark contrast between the light top and dark bottom. Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

To add a bit of the blue up towards my face, I selected my leopard scarf with tassels. This is a second hand piece as well that I got about a year ago at a local consignment shop. For jewelry I added a tortoiseshell and turquoise bracelet I got last week from the Charming Charlie clearance rack. Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

A snake skin print clutch I got over eight years ago at JCPenney completes this ensemble. I have considered purging this piece in the past and I am so glad I didn’t. It gets used way too much.Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

I simply adore how the laser cut skirt gives a hint of skin and gives such an interesting detail to this look.  It is so incredibly soft and well made. I can see why this brand retails at a higher price point because it is made with such quality. Mynt 1792 Navy Blue Laser Cut Skirt with a Quilted White Top from Old Navy, Leopard Tasseled Scarf from LOFT, Tortoiseshell & Turquoise Bracelet from Charming Charlie, Snake Print Clutch from JCPenney, and Brown Pierced Leather Wedges from Franco Sarto | Designing From My Closet | Plus Size & Inbetweenie Fashion Blog

Do you purchase second hand to keep your wardrobe fresh?  Do you have certain pieces that you still use after a long time?
