an ethical outfit: thrifting


This outfit may seem a little too put together for thrifting, but it’s a good fit for a few reasons: 1. Slip-on shoes are a must for trying on shoes and clothing, 2. two piece outfits are preferable to dresses when you’re trying to get a sense of how tops and bottoms will look with items you already own, 3. a crossbody helps you go hands free when you’re hunting through the racks, and 4. earrings are a better option than a necklace or rings because they won’t get in the way while you’re shopping.

Preparation is key!

Outfit Details: Green 3 Sweater, Rag & Bone Jeans, Mata Traders Earrings, The Body Shop Tinted Balm, Parker Clay Bag, The Root Collective Flats

    I've taken one too many thrift trips in a dress or high top sneakers that are hard to unlace and it's so inconvenient. I wish I'd discovered this sweater earlier in the season before I'd met my sweater quota.

    Ah, your idea about wearing a two-piece outfit is perfect! I always have to grab a skirt or pant if I haven't already. And I can't leave without saying something about that sweater, just look at that print!
