The best way to quickly spice up your wardrobe without adding new items to it is simply to have your beat-up shoes or clothes repaired by an adept cobbler or seamstress. My cobbler managed to breathe some new life into my old suede boots of which I had neglected to take proper care. They were worn to death in the worst imaginable weather, but even though I love the look of worn-out shoes it looked as if there was no life left in them. But hello, now they look almost brand new and I’ve fallen back in love with them again. What a relief! And the same holds good for my other quotidian shoes. Too bad I don’t have a before picture.
These are my go-to places for a time machine fix:
