Tips & Tricks

Great style is first and foremost about finding your own personal voice.  Expressing yourself through fashion can be freeing, fun, even exhilarating!

I also know from personal experience that lack of money, poor fit, and general lack of options can be frustrating to say the least.  Through the years and some of my own personal experiences, I feel like I have become an expert on finding great deals and making clothes work for me.  I never want to be limited in my style because clothes don’t fit me off of the rack.  Most clothes are designed to fit a very specific body type – a body type that certainly isn’t mine.  I blamed my body for years and thought that I was simply the problem.  When I discovered that almost everything can be altered to fit, a whole new world of style opportunities opened up.

Through my blog, I hope to share some of this knowledge I have gained over the years through trial and error with you.  Check out my tailoring and budget related posts for helpful hints, suggestions, and ideas on how to get more out of your closet.  Also, check out the Shop Your Closet tab under Fashion for ideas on how to get more wear out of individual pieces in your wardrobe.
