I love a challenge, especially when it’s with clothes. ‘That’s a daggy old jumper, time to throw it out’ ‘I can’t do anything with this beat up belt’ Oh really!!? What if the men’s jumper is a stunning shade of olive green, 100% cashmere and feels like you are wearing a cloud. What if the belt is butter soft with a wonderful story woven in. It’s fall in NYC, the air is a little crisper and you can start to layer like a boss. Let the true fashion olympics begin. I’m normally such a jeans…
