Los Angeles, CA 

I am constantly updating my wardrobe. My closet is essentially a revolving door of dresses, jeans and a few new trendy pieces. And while I love nothing more than dressing up in something new, I have learned that a good closet cleanout can bring forth some of the best finds. From classic LBDs to button-down skirts and culottes, this recent cleaning uncovered some real gems.

Unlike those save-it-for-forever types, I am the person who deeply enjoys getting rid of unused pieces (I'm looking at you low-rise jeans). So if I do happen to hang onto something after a closet purge, it means something.


I've had this pleated maxi skirt for years. I remember wearing it to my first fashion editor job 4 years ago! It has gotten me through meetings and lunch dates and even a baby shower or two yet I totally forgot about it until last week. I paired it with this cropped cold shoulder top from Nordstrom and it felt brand new all over again. Is there anything better than making an old favorite new again? What are some of your forever keepers?
