This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Hunt for a New Outfit…

May, 14, 2014

…in your own closet! Sometimes a girl wants a new look, but her budget doesn’t call for a shopping spree. Old pieces can feel fresh if you give them a creative recombination.

Fashion A

I took a jeans jacket that I’ve owned for a decade…okay, not quite, but it feels that way…and paired it with one of my prime going-out-dancing pinched tops.

Fashion B

Then I pulled out a necklace and bracelet that had finished off a fancy formal dress. Good memories. My date to that one was A+!!

Fashion C

I mixed in a skirt from the depths of my closet that once went with an adorable top… I’d trotted it out so many times that it had turned to tatters.

Fashion D

After a trip to an arts and crafts store, I spiced up the skirt by gluing on blue crystals. Now I have a new outfit that I love without bending my bank account!
