How to Revamp Your Wardrobe Without Spending a Single Dollar

A few weeks ago, I found myself sitting on the floor in front of my closet with a pile of clothes at my feet. I had pulled out piece after piece trying to put an outfit together for work, only to toss aside everything I tried on in frustration. I had reached a saturation point with my wardrobe; I was guilty of overwearing my favorite pieces, and I wasn't feeling inspired by, well, anything. If you too have found yourself exasperated and uninspired, you know that even with a closet full of clothes to wear, some days you just don't like anything. 

Luckily, that evening a friend was stopping by for wine (read: rosé), and as I explained my frustration, she listened, patiently sitting and sipping until jumping up and volunteering to look through what I had. After 20 minutes of rummaging through my stuff, she managed to rearrange my closet completely, pulling out dresses I had pushed into the corners and left to get dusty. Watching her do an edit of my closet—a friend refresh, as I'm calling it—was exactly what I needed.
