A Secret to Buying Less Clothes

style tip May 05, 2020
 
This week I challenged my Style Insider Academy girls to wear something that we haven’t worn in awhile. It’s going to get us out of going for our “usuals” and help to breathe new life into a piece that otherwise might not have been getting some love.
 
So today I picked the vest I stole from my hubby and had altered to fit me.
