Much as I love fashion, and spend ages on deciding what to take when I am traveling, I screw up. Oh man, have I screwed up sometimes. Where do I start? With my pre-college shopping and packing, where I naively assumed that what was in style in my small town would be in style in the big city? Oops. Got that one wrong.
Some people have a personal style image. For instance, they always look elegant and rich, or they always look like a hippie, or a biker, or a business executive, or sexy, or bedraggled, or whatever. That’s a personal fashion style, whatever the specific garments or accessories chosen. Take Kim Kardashian, for example.
It seems that whenever a brand becomes highly popular with mainstream teenagers, the company starts to lower its quality standards, using inferior fabrics and shoddier workmanship. The company then floods the market with these poorer quality products, while keeping the price point at its previous level.
OMG! What am I doing?!! I should be telling you to just buy more clothes from Discoveries. But nope, that’s not what this post is about. This post is about making the most of what you already own.) I like to think of this as a way to maximize your use of what you already have in your closet, while expanding your style...
