Before you snub your nose at thrift shopping let's talk about how good second hand buying is for our world & economy:
Did you know? 85% of all clothing that gets donated ends up in landfills. A meager 15% of what we donate ends up being recycled and most of this recycled product ends up overseas.
These outfits and shoes were all purchased at the thrift store and I cannot wait to wear them this spring.
Gap dress: $3.99
no label: $3.99
Isaac Mizrahi for Target: $6.99
Kenneth Cole: $6.99
Lucky Brand: $3.99
Forever21 dress: $4.99
Tahari jersey dress: $5.99
Vince Cashmere Sweater: $6.99
Ann Taylor Loft skirt: $3.99
All that totals up to $47.91, my bank account will take that any day.
Of course there are some pieces that I still love to invest in, but thrift shopping is not only the cheaper option, it's a fun one too. I love to take a Saturday morning and go looking for clothes. It's a bit therapeutic for me.
