Remix: American Apparel

I don’t usually follow up my Spotlight posts with a Remix – but considering the vast amount of American Apparel has dotted my wardrobe over the course of my blogging years, it was a no brainer. It has always been a basics brand I’ve supported! But whilst living in Las Vegas (can you believe it’s already been almost five years since I moved away? I can’t!) I had lots of friends that worked for the brand, and as a student & someone starting their career, their price points always worked for me.

Let’s go down memory lane – some posts will be going back to the beginnings of the blog. You’ll see how much my style (and picture quality) has evolved! Funny enough, there is no way I can even show you in fact how much more American Apparel shows up here. These are just some of my favorites 🙂

I still really like my twist scarves, I have it in black now too!

American Apparel is known for versatile pieces – once upon a time, I wore this as a dress! It’s now strictly worn as a skirt!

The jumpsuit is now gone (I didn’t want to admit it was too short for my torso length), but I had fun wearing it anyway.

I still love my Le Sac dress, even though I rarely get to wear it in SF. It’s the easiest vacation dress because it takes up so little space in the suitcase!

I recently also got rid of this leotard – I loved it while I had it, but since you basically have to wear it braless – those days are behind me 😉

Once upon a time, I would have worn this as a dress too! (in Las Vegas, you get away with wearing really short stuff!). But used it as a top for my trip to Mexico. Eventually, this left my closet because it ripped!

I have no idea where this oversized grey top went! If I didn’t have another similar one by another brand, I’d buy it again.

Why was I so emo here?! I remember buying this because I thought I needed more pink in my wardrobe.

Holy cow this is short! I can’t believe I wore this to work!

Another one of the colorful basics tops! I’m pretty sure these aren’t my wardrobe anymore because I carelessly let them get stained 🙁

There’s a few things in AA stores right now I wouldn’t mind getting – but sometimes their clothes are just way too short for me (when I have to be professional at work!) My first American Apparel piece was a triblend top that was given to me at a 2006 Las Vegas tradeshow for free when they were first branching out wholesale – I still have that top! It has turned into a very soft, almost vintage-like piece that I won’t be getting rid of any time soon.
