Reinvent your summer wardrobe: Local boutique owner Cora, of Coriander in the Old Market, continues to impress with a project called Reinvent. The project seeks to breathe new life into old things by repurposing used clothing and accessory items into trendy and original one-of-a-kind pieces. Over the past week, Cora posted photos of newly re-dyed vintage gloves and must-see headbands made from vintage silk scarves on Coriander’s Facebook page. Omahans should stop in-store at 1028 Howard St (Old Market Passageway) to see and purchase goods from this renewable project.
