And recently, this creative journey has taken a hard left into territory that may just end up being my calling. I'm often inspired by a runway show, a gorgeous celebrity muse, or simply something I find in a magazine...
Then I team up with my uber talented seamstress & styling partner, and we hack away... it's been really cool to see just how much we can do, while spending very little.
Case in point: This little red number was a super boxy, unflattering suit (circa bad 90's), but the pants fit so well, I just couldn't pass up the $5 price tag. After some tailoring of the top, I have a daring ensemble that I'll wear in place of a cocktail dress when I'm feeling a bit bold and rebellious.
The rest of the time, I'll pair the pants with my leopard flats and camel cashmere sweater, belted over a tee.
