April's Cosmo jumps (again) on the recession-era shop-your-closet bandwagon, and lands with a resounding thud.

Most of Cosmo's ideas will seem obvious to anyone with a brain stem. Did you know you can roll up your jeans? Wear a dress with a sweater? Pair a white tank top with β€” gosh, anything? A few don't really seem like they would help much β€” is putting a belt on "last year's bright sack dress" really going to make a whole new outfit? But the whole spread might look better if the model wearingCosmo's on-the-cheap ideas wasn't pictured with a whole mess of designer shoes β€” and the boxes she apparently just bought them in. Thanks for the tip, Cosmo β€” our closets would be a lot more fun to shop in if they magically contained a whole bunch of spanking new Louboutins.
