what's old is new again

one of the best ways to maximize your closet is to get creative. i am a repeat offender of making impulse purchases and only wearing an item once or twice before throwing it in the back of my closet. ironically, at the same time i can never bring myself to get rid of it. sound familiar? case in point, my wide leg leopard pants seen here. although i loved it at the time of purchase, i only wore it once and left it sitting in my closet for months. that is until i had the brilliant idea to re-work it into a maxi skirt, which is a lot more wearable! i enlisted the help of my tailor, since i am all thumbs when it comes to sewing...and voila! a "brand new" sheer maxi leopard skirt that i love! so i encourage you to rummage through your closet and find the items that you once loved and re-create them into pieces that you can love all over again!
