I was giggling with glee this afternoon when the Herve Leger dress that I purchased from Paula Abdul’s closet arrived, but before I get into how/where I got it (what you really care about), I just want to take a few sentences to talk about how that relates to my passion for preloved clothing. If you’re reading Clossette you probably know that this site all about taking fashion into your own hands, hunting for secondhand and vintage pieces you love instead of fast fashion you’ll throw away and using fashion for good instead of evil. But I know that shopping at thrift shops and wearing stuff that other people already did hardly seems glamorous, which is why I think a lot of my friends don’t do it. That’s why I’m really excited to see more celebs selling their own used clothing online and giving more people a reason to try out buying secondhand. Not only are the pieces usually like new, but they’re deeply discounted too. If I’d bought this Herve Leger dress brand new at a store, it would have been more than $1,000! Instead I bought it for just $144, it’s practically new and what’s more, it was worn by Paula Abdul! So if you’re reading this and thinking, hmm, I want to pay much less for something designer that was worn by a celebrity, I really urge you to consider getting into secondhand shopping. It’s true that most of the time, the things you find weren’t worn by celebrities but you’ll find amazing deals on stuff you would never be able to afford otherwise (at least not on a writer’s salary like mine).

Anyhoo, read on for the deets of where I scooped up my beautiful new Herve Leger (my very first one!) or read my interview with Paula Abdul about how she feels about vintage fashion here.

You probably know Paula Abdul for her unforgettable pop hits (Opposites Attract is my personal fave) or for being one of the “nice” judges on American Idol and X Factor, but did you know that she’s also a vintage fashion aficionado? I recently got the chance to ask Paula if she would straight up now tell me why she loves vintage fashion and donating her preloved clothing instead of throwing it away. Read on to see what she said and get a peek at the adorable silk and cotton Abaeté dress I purchased right from her closet through one of my favorite new collaborative consumption sites, TheRealReal.

DIY: How to Make a Retro Clutch Out of an Old Video Tape Box

I recently dug up this old Paula Abdul cardio dance video with the intention of burning some calories when I realized that A. I’m allergic to exercise and B. I no longer own a VCR. Downtrodden but not completely hopeless, I inspected the relic like an archaeologist and was impressed with both its uber-simplistic 90s colorblock design and the sturdiness of the box’s closing mechanism when it came to me – this could make a really unique DIY clutch. After all, the dimensions are pretty much spot-on and it’s just so wonderfully kitsch/nostalgic/ironic. And the beauty of it is that you can pretty much use any video box that you want for your own clutch (I highly doubt anyone else owns this Paula Abdul workout video or will admit to it?). Technically, you could even use the box as a clutch unmodified but I wanted to add a few touches to make it more obvious that it was an actual purse and not just a video that you’re carrying around.

Another really cool thing about this DIY is that if your video case is the kind with a transparent sleeve and piece of paper that slides in and out, you can swap out the graphic with whatever you want to make this a really versatile clutch. For example, if you have a piece of paper from another video – say The Breakfast Club – you can just remove Paula Abdul and slip that in instead. Or you can even leave the clear sleeve empty and use it as a white clutch. The possibilities are endless!
