Why I cut the sleeves off my grandmas Chanel blazer

I had my grandmas Chanel blazer turned into a vest. I knew I’d wear it ten times more if it were a vest. If you’ve been following me, you know I looove vests.

We make a lot of decisions in our day-to-day lives and getting dressed doesn’t have to be one more (stressful) decision.  

 I’m all about ease and looking put-together quickly.

  For me and most of my clients, versatility is vital and it’s exactly why I made this blazer a vest.

What’s in your closet that you could transform so you’d wear it more often?  Maybe it’s as simple as lengthening the arms? Hemming an inch or two from a pant?  Taking your purse to be professionally cleaned?

THREE IDEAS TO TRANSFORM YOUR MAYBE-PIECE INTO -I-WANT-TO-WEAR-IT-ALL-THE-TIME:
• Hem a maxi so you can wear it casually (READ: MORE OFTEN) with a pair of metallic flat sandals/booties/shoes
• Remove the sleeves from a blazer
• Change the buttons on a blazer or a coat

I also RIT dyed it a brighter pink. This was a little crazy so I’m not sure I’d recommend you doing so. I’m suuuuper glad I did though!

What can you transform TODAY?
