Shoestring Style

Giving your wardrobe a creative overhaul need not be a dour drudge!

Here at Shoestring Sally, we seek out fun & cheap tricks for jazzing up old clothes, surprising sources of chic jewelry and other fun accessory ideas that are all about one thing: ditching the slick trend-pimps of Madison Avenue and cultivating looks that are distinctly you. No sewing machines required!

And on that note, I salute the Queen of the Poor Little Rich Girls, a Shoestring Stylista who always broke "the rules," socialite & legend in her own time (and ours) Edie Beale.

Jackie O's cousin, Edie was born into great wealth.

Reduced to penury in later years, she fashioned a black sweater & gold pin into a most singular piece of head wear --and became a style icon.

Edith Bouvier Beale: She always marched to the beat of her own drum.
