a couple months back, the british charity/aid organization oxfam teamed up with “stylist to the stars” mrs. jones (who, according to their website, has dressed the likes of the killers, kylie, scissor sisters and goldfrapp) for a PR campaign that includes a spate of fun DIY how-to’s (which include instructions on making a skirt from a pair of old jeans, turning a tee into hammer pants, and spiffing up a pair of shoes). they also have a very cool collection of refashioned clothing designed by mrs. jones available for sale on their site (which is just plain fun to peruse) and a gallery of styled up discards that look anything but (see bottom photos above, and/or scroll down to the bottom here). good ideas abound, for mere pennies and the cost of your time and effort!
