I've been in desperate need of new jeans lately. Everything in my closet is either too big, too small . . . or just too old. I planned on splurging and just getting a pair I love, but I always feel guilty not at least looking for a pair on sale first. Lo and behold, I found two super hot pairs at the Rack that were marked "Altered or Refinished" and they happened to fit me just right and the exact pairs are being sold at Nordstrom right now (I checked.)!
The moral of this story? One woman's poorly altered clothes are another woman's treasure.
