Recycling Your Wardrobe

Not a bad idea considering even our First Lady is doing it according to the latest news reports.

 On last night’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Michelle re-wore her $148 pastel green "Pembridge-Dot" J.Crew pencil skirt – which we first saw when she visited 10 Downing Street in 2009 – paired with a shimmering gold short-sleeve sweater by Michael Kors and a jeweled statement belt. The ensemble came across as effortlessly sophisticated, and the cool palette was a great way of using color in winter.  Styles go in and out of fashion almost as fast as we change our underwear.

With prices soaring, job losses ever prevalent and the value of our currency teetering to and fro, why not be fashion savvy.  There are certain styles that will be forever ageless like the "Little Black Dress" and who's to say you can't look glamorous in something 2, 5 or 10 years old.  There are lots of ways to transform, alter, embellish and reconstruct older styles into a fashionable and trendy wardrobe. A little imagination and creativity can go a long way.

Do you think this is a fashion faux pas or a great idea?
