Day 224

In an effort to stay on track and yet continue to be stylish, I raided my closet this weekend to see what "gems" I could find and I was pleasantly surprised with what I was able to dig up.  I found numerous pieces of clothing that had ben neglected, mainly because they did not fit anymore or were slightly out of style. I am pretty good at keeping my closet fairly organized and cleaned out, so the things I found are definitely salvageable.  

Last fall I took the cape my Grandmother had given me and had it hemmed to just above my knee. She had given it to me years earlier, but I had never worn it because its Retro ankle-length hem was outdated.  After getting the cape hemmed, it has become one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe and definitely a winter staple. 

It's amazing what a great tailor can do to revitalize an item of clothing. After visiting the tailor this week I will have two pairs of pants and a pencil skirt.  The pencil skirt and one of the pairs of pants have never been worn, because they never fit properly.  It will be nice to have three seemingly new pieces of clothing in my wardrobe! 

Fashion tip of the Day: Find your inner Sass and get yourself some red lipstick. My current favorite way to wear it is with an entirely black outfit. It instantly makes the outfit more playful, with a touch of sexiness. My favorite color is Lancome's Smoky Rouge, just don't forget to use lip liner!
