Shopping the Closet: new outfits without buying a thing

As many of you know, I do image consulting as well as jewelry design...Recently, one of my clients and I went through her closet with the goal of re-using pieces and revamping her style. She was kind enough to let me take pictures of some of our progress.  In this post I'm showing 2 dresses she felt were boring and never wore.
 She was on the verge of throwing the gray one out!!!! 

Here's how we revamped it:
Original look (ie dress she hates)
BORING
New Look


The Outfit:
Dress: Tadashi
Sweater: Armani Exchange
Shoes: Steve Madden
Clutch: BCBG


A lot of my lovely followers know how much I love adding a top or sweater to a dress, to totally change the look, as shown in one of my past posts: Re-work a dress for cooler weather


Dress #2 (below) is adorable...I like it how she origially put it together, but I also like the alternative version for when she wants to mix things up:






The Outfit
Dress: Forever 21
Belt: Banana Republic
Clutch: thrift store purchase
Shoes: Pelle Moda

We had fun putting together a bunch of other looks as well. She has a lot of clothes but feels like she's always wearing the same stuff. Sometimes all you need is a fresh eye!
