FASHION DIET?..."5 Ways to Reuse, Revamp & Shop Your Closet For Spring"

As much as we like new things, sometimes being a Recessionista than a Fashionista can be hard !

But hard times makes for hard line decision ladies! So for all of you who love this seasons new color & trends here's a guide to update your closet even if you have to Fake it!!

1.Sell your Stuff:
Look through your Closet and take out all the stuff that has price tags and you don't use and place an Ad on Craigslist . You get a chance to make extra Cash and go buy NEW stuff . You can also go to Buffalo Exchange or Beacons Closet and Trade your stuff for other stuff.
2. Re-arrange your Wardrobe:
Eg. Harem Pants and Straight knee cropped pants are the coolest thing for Spring 09! Why not take a A line long wide skirt to a tailor and have them sew it in the middle and make them that way Or take a pair of long slacks and have them cut to the knee.???? In addition, Men's Denim oversize jeans are in....go into hubby's closet and roll em up and pair it off with some cool high stilettos...Watch Out!!!
3. Total Access!!
Accessories go along way!!!! Get some Spring cool necklaces, bracelets and 1 or 2 belts and give that dress or top a pick me up. Colorful handbags, cool sandals and you have it made. My favorite places are H&M, Zara's, Forever 21, Strawberry Jam.........they make some great copy cats.
4. Chic, is the new Chick Wear....
There is such a thing as cool grunge ladies. I'm mean you can take a tee or wife beater, add some cut of jeans , pair it with some vintage leather and you are Grunge chic. Great place to find awesome cheap leather jackets are Salvation Army, Thrift Shops, etc.
5. Don't Take Final Sale as an Answer:
Many retail stores are doing poorly so try to even negotiate a blowout me you be surprise what you can buy.
