This quote comes from eNVe Designs about Marissa. I loved the way she wrote it.
This brilliant idea came to Marisa, a young woman entering her 30's, who found herself wading in what she called "a personal creative-funk-crisis". To get herself out of the rut, she decided to stop shopping for an entire year! I know what you're thinking ladies, "yea, that would make a girl feel better alright...in OPPOSITE WORLD!" But that's just what she has been doing for the past several months--forgoing the traditional clothing shopping. Instead, Marisa is only buying vintage/pre-worn clothing and only allotting herself a budget of $1 per outfit, per day, which she then transforms (with the help of her trusty sewing machine and some sharp shears) into chic, current, fashionable garments, giving each old outfit a new life. That's it.. 365 days, 365 "new" outfits, for 365 dollars. That's definite brilliance if you ask me!
And if that doesnt motivate anyone to revamp their wardrobe then i simply do not know what will.
