The up side to this reinvention of my style 5 years later is that I finally have a great foundation wardrobe to get me from work to play to fancy shmancy dinners. The downside is that I am still in the mindset that I need to build my wardrobe. I find it hard not to pick up a cute top or dress at Target or Forever 21 for $10 here or $20 there(mock if you like they have great pieces!).

However, I grew up in a family where we thought of finding a deal as a sporting event. Day after Thanksgiving and Christmas are like the world series for my mom and I. We are out of the house before the sun is up and home by 8am with a car full of deals! It will be very interesting to see if I can make it though that without shopping for me....
To get myself through the urges to shop I am going to go ahead and try to inspire myself through pinterest and polyvore to reinvent my current wardrobe. Perhaps it means splitting up a suit or even learning a bit of sewing to tailor items. Not sure that I will post my outfits or creations here all the time, but I think it might be a good place to keep me honest and hopefully you can inspire me on how to reinvent everyday looks...
Today I actually managed to reinvent a summer dress into a fall look by adding tights and boots! Perhaps this won't be as bad as I think!
