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.

Trot Out Your Old Clothes

January, 10, 2014

As you know, it’s the Year of the Horse, so if your budget was blown over the holidays, you can trot out your old clothes and still be on the cutting edge of style. Seven years ago, I bought this shearling-like jacket. Last weekend, I saw something similar hot off the designer’s table. So I pulled mine out of the give-away pile and wore it with pride.

Your Old Clothes

In the same outing, I spotted black leather-like pants, which were almost carbon copies of a pair I got three years ago. The only differences were that the current ones had a narrower leg and cost about five times more. So I continued my fashion-recycling binge and had the legs narrowed, for free, at Nordstrom.
