SB: I love your “ways to wear” posts. What’s your favorite clothing piece that you’ve remixed? 

C: Thank you! I loved finding different ways to wear my cardigan. Because not only can a cardigan be dressy or casual, but I found ways to actually transform the piece and wear it as a halter top or even backwards!
