Tips it from an old pro.

A few of you have asked me to share some tips since this is my second time around with this 30 for 30 challenge. Well, here ya go! Even if you're not joining in the challenge, these tips may offer you a few ideas on how to change up your current wardrobe!
Tip #1: Not what they seem. By day 15 or so, you may feel like you've already exhausted all of your ideas for remixes. This is when things get a little crazy! Try wearing a dress as a skirt, or tucking a shirt into pants and wearing it as a top!
I wore this skirt as a dress:

Tip #2: Inside out. Is one of your pieces lined in a different color fabric? Turn it inside out! Just be sure to cut off any tags. If there are any raw seams, you could try covering them up with a belt or accessory. Seen here:


Tip #3: Make a distraction. It's kind of hard to tell what top I'm wearing when I add a big scarf over it. Co-workers will never notice you've worn the same top over and over when you distract them with a bright colored scarf.


Tip #4: Double Duty. Use a blazer to make a fun dress work-appropriate, or pair a blazer with jeans for a chic night-out look.


Tip #5 Make a chart: I know it might be nerdy, but I totally made an excel spreadsheet last time! It really helped keep me organized. I put the bottoms and dresses in the columns and the tops in the rows. I highlighted it when I had worn it. This way I could know what items I had worn the most/least.

Well, hope these tips help!! Happy remixing!!!!
