I love a bargain, and I like reducing my environmental footprint. That’s why I enjoy thrifting and swapping: They’re great ways to keep clothing out of the landfills and reduce commercial waste (manufacturing clothing uses a lot of resources). Here’s an outfit that I recently got for free at a clothing exchange.
Jeans: Gap via swapped
Boots: Dr. Martens
Necklace: Reconstructed Clothing Co.
The teal, cotton jacket was a Brooklyn NY find but didn’t get enough wear so its owner brought it to a clothing exchange I recently went to. The gray jeans were too snug for their original recipient so I grabbed them. I already owned the t-shirt, boots, and necklace. The necklace, however, is made from a recycled ticket, so it counts as part of the ethical portion of this outfit.
I recently joined the Ethical Fashion Bloggers, run by Ceri over at Style Eyes, so I can share my ideas and get lots of new ones. Check out what’s going on over there for neat ideas you can use too.
