Mix the old with the new to make the most out of your wardrobe.

My mother’s closet is one of my favorite places to “shop.”   There’s always some gem that she forgot she owned or a piece she is bored with. I am ever so grateful for my trips back home to NY, because I take full advantage of the opportunity to rummage through her wardrobe.

I’m not alone in my adoration of my mom’s stuff.  My friend, Jackie, also recycles her mom’s clothes and makes brand new looks out of them.

The best part about recycling?

It’s completely FREE!



Jackie updated her mom's navy blue wool pencil skirt with a classic white V-neck, funky purple belt, and sassy suede booties.

I topped my vintage-inspired outfit (huge Black Friday finds!) with my mom's chunky cape-style sweater. (White blouse - H&M; Necklace - Ann Taylor Loft; Pencil Skirt - Forever 21; Tights - Calvin Klein; Lace-up heeled Oxfords - ALDO)
