That’s why they call me

Unlike what Barbra Streisand’s song might say, there is nothing wrong or sad about buying second hand. I do it frequently (hello Ebay, my old friend) and would do it more often if I wasn’t trying to avoid shopping.
There are several things to be said about second hand shopping:
- It is fun, nothing like the thrill of the hunt for bargainous stylish wares.
- You find items that no one else will have.
- If you buy vintage, chances are that the fabrics and the way thy are sewn are a lot better quality than what you can buy nowadays.
- It’s good for the environment, as there will be less used clothes going to the landfills and less pollution produced as a result of constantly making new items.
- Tends to be cheaper.
I don’t always get to find everything I like or that fits my vision for a style second hand but I always try it first! #secondhandfirst
I have in the past shared many outfits that included second hand items. Here’s a small selection for your enjoyment.
Was that so bad?
