Sometimes, it's the little things. A little red, white and blue ribbon pin that you bought online for $30 that has already created two amazing new outfits (using only old things) in your closet. (See the other one here.) And that little idea in a magazine photo that inspired you to add that same ribbon pin to a ruffled white shirt, which just happens to go perfectly with a stripe skirt from 7 years ago. The little ribbon pin and a little idea that sparked an even bigger one... sometimes, the little things are the best things!
