charity shop challenge - march

charity shop challenge

the charity shop & second-hand rummaging i did in march further cemented my love for recycling via clothing & avoiding fast fashion. as well as the above shoes & the trousers seen here, i added two cardigans & a top to my wardrobe (perhaps i'll share them next month - i'd done my photos by the time i found them this morning). i'm starting to think i might have to have a one-in-one-out policy with clothing if i keep finding things. it's nice to think that if some items from my wardrobe made their way to a charity shop, someone might like them as much as i like my finds.

i'm so glad you got all the internet stuff fixed! i was sad that i wouldn't be able to see your blog anymore!

but these shoes are so lovely! about 95% of my clothes are thrift store, hand-me-downs, garage sale, & flea market finds. i love going that way for clothes. because then your wardrobe is unique!

one in/one out is a great idea for clothes. I just instituted that rule for recipes in my recipe file...now I'll do the same for clothing. Hmmnn, where else can I apply this??
