Wedding Flow: Formal on a Budget using the Kondo Method

Since cleaning out my closet and using the Kondo method, I've been recycling outfits and restyling them. Using the Kondo Method means to really streamline and tidy up things down to the bare necessities and really putting to good use what you have as well.

Today we had a wedding and I pulled out the dress I wore to our rehearsal dinner from Necessary Clothing. My bag was an old one from Lu Lus. My shoes were umpteen hundred years old from Macy's (like I had them from when I was on college....). My necklace and earrings are recycled from my own wedding rehearsal diner. The brooch on the dress was a $2 beauty supply find. It really made it fancy and jazzed it up!

Hubs also has been restyling things. He simply purchased a new bow tie from k&g. His pocket square was from an old set that I got him ages ago. His shoes are his fav Cole Haan slip-ons and his suit is his trusty black Hugo Boss suit. He also got a fresh white Kenneth Cole shirt from K&G to brighten up his suit.

Here are our outfit deets:
