TAKE SOME CARE
One thing that we can all learn to do is to take care of and cherish the stuff you own. Whether a treasured vintage find, that coveted Chloé dress that you saved weeks for, or that blouse that you bought from Zara last year, all things are susceptible to ruin, because we are all human. Don't be so quick to toss aside into the trash bin because you got a snag in your skirt, a stain on your collar, or a hole in your favorite sweater. Take a look at it, and just maybe, with a little bit of love, you can rescue your beloved piece from the wasteland of apparel already in the landfills and keep it wearable in your closet.

CHANGE IT UP
With a little invention and help from your trusted tailor, you can make something that isn't working for you into something completely new. Stepped on the hem of your maxi dress and tore the fabric... make it into a mini. A pair of scissors is obviously an easy way to make a pair of cutoffs, but take that same idea to your tailor and turn any pair of trousers into a fun new pair of shorts. A stained sleeve can be cut off and turned into a new short sleeve blouse.
