A couple weeks ago I was getting rid of pieces in my closet and brought them over for my mom and sister to dig through. My mom came up with the brilliant idea of turning this old Hollister dress into a skirt. I love having a mother who sews (she used to make a good portion of my clothes when I was younger.) I wore it REALLY high up here and threw the sweater my Grandmother made on top. But the skirt goes below my knees if I wear it on my actual hips. So now I have a myriad of ways to wear it.
It's always hard to get rid of pieces, even things you never wear anymore. I try to do it gradually but sometimes I do a big wardrobe cull. But sometimes all it takes is a little bit of re-imagining for a piece to find a spot in your wardrobe again. I have to do that with this leather skirt I bought for $10, it's just too long. I want to shorten it so it is more like this Burberry London skirt. First I have to find a tailor and make myself go, ha ha...
