Ethical fashion, home decor, green living.

A week of thrifted outfits

A week of thrifted outfits

Ethical fashion is not all that accessible. I know it, you know it. Buying a shirt for $100 is outside of the realm of possibility a lot of the time. And while I do save up for some cherished items from ethical brands, my first option for when I need to fill a gap in my wardrobe is thrifting. Often, I’ll see something beautiful from an ethical or fast fashion brand, and make it my mission to find its replica in vintage or secondhand. And half the time, it works (and is way more affordable).

The second benefit to thrifting is how good it is for the environment—no need for new production, no disposal of clothes, just extending the life of something that’s already been made. Yay!

#ThriftWeekClub

Thrift Week is a challenge started by @laurenmarigold as a way to normalize wearing thrifted clothing, and to celebrate how amazing you can look while wearing it. Check out her profile to learn more, and to participate in this (or the next) one!
