You and your clothes… it’s a love/hate relationship. You love the way a dress looks, but not the way it fits. Or the color of a sweater is fantastic, but the neckline just looks wrong. Maybe you’ve found an amazing skirt at your favorite thrift store, but it has a noticeable stain in an awkward spot. What’s a clothes-loving girl to do?
Changing Your Clothes is all about discovering the creative possibilities that already exist, right in your own closet! Everything I post here is my own projects, the solutions I find to my real-life clothes quandaries. (And I have a lot of those.) Follow my fashion-filled adventures as I alter, repair, knit, sew, recycle, reimagine, and reinvent my own wardrobe– and find fresh inspiration in your own closet!
It’s about time to change your clothes— and love them all over again!

I have a question for you – this occurred to me today as I was walking my dog. It’s cold here, so I typically wear a warm cable knit hat that fits over my ears or a beret/beanie that’s warm. However, as you know…it doesn’t protect my skin from the sun like my “summer hat” (a large garden hat or wide-brimmed beach hat), and I sometimes forget the sunscreen in the winter. Besides always wearing sunscreen (which I should do anyway!!), is there a winter hat style that is warm and also provides sun protection for the face? Thanks, D

That’s a GREAT question! It’ll be easier to reply in a new post; do you mind if I copy your question into it?

Sure! That would be great! Can you send me a note to let me know when you post it? I want to know the answer! 🙂 Talk soon.

Great! I’m working on it right now. I’ll comment here again when it’s done. Thank you!!

I’ll be so curious to see what you find– will you post a picture, please? Also, this is a great time of year to find bargains in the Anthro stores; last Christmas, I found a fantastic cloche hat for my daughter for $10!

Thank you, ladies!! I’m trying out a darker hair color along with the new asymmetrical cut. It’s good to experiment, yes?
