I recently read a post about whether fashion bloggers should repeat items of clothing/bags/shoes etc in blog posts. Well if you have a lot of money then it's easy to wear something new every blog post but a lot of bloggers, including myself, can't afford to. I'm a student. If I could afford to wear something new everyday, my blog would be professionally designed, I'd have hired a photographer to take my photos and my bags would not be from Newlook.
 Also, one of my favourite things in fashion blogging is seeing how a blogger restyles the same item. Whether it be for a different time of year or just for a different situation, it's interesting to see how they do it. So yeah, you may recognise this dress from an earlier post if you read my blog regularly (see post here). When I wore it then, it was for my brother 18th. We went out in a limo and for a meal so I dressed it up. Today however it's dressed down with a pair of trainers and a cropped denim jacket. The outfit feels and looks different so I decided to blog about it. I do this often because my blog's supposed to reflect my style and in my life (away from my blog) I rewear items all the time. It'd be silly to pretend I didn't. Also, my friends and family see my posts and they most certainly know I outfit repeat.

Do you think fashion bloggers should restyle/reblog outfits?
It'd be great to get your feedback on this issue! 

Happy Thursday!

I definitely don't see the problem with including items of clothing they've worn before; like you said, that's what happens in real life so you might as well document it that way, especially if you're dressing something up or down in comparison to how you did it before. Absolutely love your dress!

i try not to wear the exact same thing in every post, but it's definitely hard! like you said i don't have a ton of money, and it's not reasonable to expect that i would be able to make each outfit completely unique.
