It's been a fun and creative experience, pushing me to recycle, reuse and refurbish. Big time. Jeans have turned into shorts, skirts have turned into dresses and slips have turned into camisoles. No joke.
As a result, here are the goals I've met so far...obviously my personal life deserves a bit more attention. Such is the life of an entrepreneur...
1. Went to LA for Retail Camp in April
2. Redesigned the Medley business cards
3. Moved Medley into an office space!!!
4. Redesigned the Medley newsletter
1. Going to Nevis and St. Kitts in July
Here are some collages of me making my wardrobe work for me;).
Skirts turned into dresses. Perhaps my favorite fashion-refurbishing technique.
I live for girlie, unique skirts. Every girl should own a few.
This yellow skirt was once my grannies. I had it taken in a bit...sadly I ruined it in the washer since then. But it.was.EVERYthing.
The turquoise skirt used to be a huuuge, floor length skirt also belonging to my granny, but Uche (the miracle worker) shortened it, added some pockets and a cute little heart-shaped button on the side. It's quite possibly my favorite summer skirt.
The middle skirt was a gift courtesy of my friend, Andy. I matched it with a full body slip-turned camisole. Was rushing to get dressed on my birthday and couldn't find a blouse to save my life. Grabbed the scissors...and viola!
The final dress on the far right is a classic from Village Girls Boutique. I bought it about 5 years ago when I was just starting with JONES as an intern. Ha! Seems so long ago. I bought it for an event we were hosting. I'm happy to say that I now know how to wear it, and the few pounds I've picked up really make a difference.
Thanks for joining me along the way...I appreciate all of my girlfriends for NOT tempting me with impulsive shopping sprees. By the end of the year I hope to visit NY a few times, redesign the Medley website and take at least two trips out of the country...we shall see;)!
