What do you do with a big ol’ bag dress? Jamie found this amazing piece from Buffalo Exchange (1318 14th St NW) for $10, fell in love with the fabric, and knew just where to bring it! The hilarious part is that this dress has a size tag marked “M” sewn in. . . we think the manufacturer may have miscalculated a little.
Daniel brought us an Italian suit he had hanging in the closet but wasn’t quite happy with it. He typically wears jackets that are perfectly tailored, and this jacket didn’t quite do it: it was all around a little too big for what he preferred. We agreed that this suit re-cutting wouldn’t be drastic, but we could definitely tweak the suit a little bit everywhere to fit exactly how he likes.
Everyone needs a few bright red accents in their closets, and I was so excited when Blake brought in this rockin’ vintage red blazer. Even though it was much bigger than he would have preferred when he found it, the red was just too cool to pass up, and he knew where he could bring it to shape it up.
I love my jeans. The older, the better. That perfect worn-in feeling… soooo comfortable, and yet, there’s this much time between broken-in and broken. Perfect example? William’s jeans. He loves them, but years of stepping on the hem wore down the back of the jeans. Luckily, at Ginger Root, we have a tub full of jean hems.
