One of the biggest lessons I've learned when it comes to fashion is the importance of a good tailor. In the past, if I found something at a great price but it was not the right fit, I would be disappointed and not make the purchase. Now, since finding a tailor that I love, I am no longer as limited. For example, I have been wanting to purchase a great burgundy wool pencil skirt for a long time. Unfortunately they sell out so fast I rarely can get my hands on my size. By the time I try to purchase one, the only ones available are either too small or too big. When I found this skirt it was only available in a size that was way too large. I decided to make the purchase online since it wasn't final sale. I took it over to my tailor and had her take in the waist and to take it in on the sides all the way down to the hem. I love the end result and I plan to throw it on for work today with a bright pink sweater. 

Do you have a go-to tailor?
