When the weather cools in New York, I can only think of one thing - New York Fashion Week. In the spirit of Fall fashion, we want to see photos of your refashioned clothing projects. Are you a thrift-shopping flea queen who has mastered the art of upcycling? Did you skip the tailor and put needle-to-thread on an emblazoned blazer? Maybe you took Marc Jacobs lead -- and put your Red Bull habit to good use -- like the refashioned wedges below the fold. Either way - we want to see your refashioned looks for Fall! Click through for details and see the potential for your photo in today's Readers' Commuter Bike Photos and in previous Readers' Slideshows.
