First thing’s first: Let’s shop the closet!
After a sit-down with my personal CFO (Mr. Wallet), I’ve decided that it would be a good idea to work with what I’ve already got in my closet before I go out hunting in the Fashion Forest. Mr. Wallet agrees… the hunt can be very dangerous for him after all.
I’ll begin by pulling out all of the old styles that I no longer wear. Whether it’s a tired old cardigan from my preppy phase or a pleated floral skirt that now reminds me of a lamp shade, I’ll pull it. Why waste valuable real estate holding on to pieces that I know I’ll never wear again? But what’s this?… an old pair of brown culottes from Express? First of all, what the heck was I thinking? Yes, I wore them once or twice… somehow I rocked the culottes. Paired with tall boots and turtle neck, they weren’t so bad. To toss or not to toss? That is the question. Hmmmm… I’ve got it! Let’s modify the culottes. Genius!
So I took them to my tailor and we turned them into shorts!
Now the hunt begins! I’m going through my closet piece by piece, thinking of ways to update and recreate some of my old favorites. It just takes a little imagination and a great tailor! I’ll keep you posted 🙂
