I'm not so much into fashion. But when I came over to Marisa's blog, I was hooked. This girl is unbeliveable... I mean take this out-dated 90s fashion faux-pas:

And she turns it into this:

Very Anthropologie!
Or take this:

she converts it into into haute conture:

Marisa is doing that every day. How cool is that! I mean this girl must have an creative energy that is above most others! A redesign once a week... yeah. But. Every. Single. Day.  
Can you belive it?
She made a deal. Here her own words:

So here’s the deal friends, I’m going to be spending the entire year without doing an ounce of traditional clothing shopping. 

Instead, the only shopping that I’ll be able to do is that of pieces that have been used and worn already.  So long to mall trips and hello to sifting through piles of vintage pieces at flea markets and at neighborhood garage sales. Each day for the entire year, I’m going to introduce a new piece into my existing wardrobe that I’ve found from these places.  On top of this, I’m giving myself a budget of $1 a day.
One person’s trash is becoming my treasure this year.
365 days. 365 items of clothing. 365 dollars. 

Here she is right now:

Day 162. 203 days and $200 left to go.

Check out her amazing blog at:  a new dress a day.
I think there is a good chance you will be as impressed as I am!
