After a dizzying conversation about skyrocketing rents in New York and Boston, I ask friend and rockstar writer, Karyn Polewaczyk, how a woman is to afford a Carrie Bradshaw lifestyle while contending with menacing rents. The answer, make more money. Are you tackling a similar issue? Increasing the size of your take home pay is generally a long term fix. At the intersection of our lifestyles and closets lies a short term solution, re-purpose and re-use.

Here's a simple example. You need a new blouse for work? That mini dress is made for more than shimmying to THIS.

Throw on your non-cleavage bearing mini dress, pull on a skirt over it or a pair of pants (only if the dress doesn't bunch in your trousers) and pair with a jacket, as needed. Voila! You have stretched your closet.

I'll continue to show you more ways to stretch your closet in the future under this themed post title, "Re-purpose Items In Your Closet," so stay tuned.
