One was another installment of How to Make an Old X New Again and the other two are a surprise, surprise, puppy surprise. Much to my discontent, however, what weather forecasters suggested would be a mere morning of flurries snowballed (for lack of a better term and my propensity for bad...

How To Wear First, choose a knit that's lightweight and long enough to be a dress. No pants, no problem — as long as you can't see underpants. Layering your knit over a white shirtdress with structure and crisp appeal is another option. Heels need to be towering for this look, and edgy...

But what makes one best dressed? This is a question asked by many, but answered only by a handful. I got to ask a few of these stylish ladies who they admire the most, and what their requirements are to make it to the best dressed list. Who knows? You just might make it to next year's...

I started with the dress and then layered a tight black mini skirt from All Saints over it, letting the pleats run free like coyotes in the wild. Then I placed a white short sleeve shirt by M. Patmos over the top of the blouse and looked kind of like a disheveled history teacher until I...

And that's it! I hope you enjoy making a maxi skirt out of an old dress! Do you like this DIY? Have you ever revamped old clothes into something new? Do you like to wear maxi skirts? Leave a comment and let us know!

Chiefly because about a month ago, I had the idea to start an installment called How to Make an Old Dress New Again where I would, you know, take old dresses and make them feel new. I'm at this curious crossroad right now where I don't want to be buying new things — instead just making what...
