Introducing our May 2013 Theme: Men’s Refashions!

We’re excited to announce the May theme for Refashion Files: Men’s Refashions. We’ve looked at women’s and children’s clothes — and we’ve looked at home refashions. But we haven’t looked at refashions for men, and that’s just not fair :).

Looking forward to a great May!
