This is why we think Kyung is a genius

It's arguably getting tiresome, but all of us here at Lucky love to wax on and on about Kyung Lee of Albertine boutique. The reason why is that she's always on hand to offer brilliant tips on making everything look better. Case in point: I am a bit of a moth to a flame when it comes to sequined vintage tops. And said tops are often way too costume-y to actually wear out of my apartment. (But while vacuuming? Why not.) I brought one piece—a standard butterfly top in black, silver and red, which you can snag at almost any vintage boutique for about $30—to Kyung, and she took some shears and unceremoniously cut it right down the front, transforming it into a cardigan. She didn't hem its rough edges and it's not even straight, but it looks amazing. Intentionally undone and haphazard, in a very cool sort of way. There's lots to learn from Kyung, really. The primary nugget being that clothing shouldn't be precious—feel free to modify until it works for you. Do you guys have any great off-the-cuff tailoring tricks?
