Taken at a secondhand shop in Katano, Japan
I don’t buy new clothes. It’s made me the recipient of many a raised eyebrow, and just like asking a vegetarian out to a steakhouse, I’m probably not the first person you’d ask to go to the mall with you. “Oh, you don’t? Hmm, okay…” has been the usual response, and the few friends who I have taken thrift shopping with me seemed a bit ill at ease – “Someone else wore these, right?” Having worked in the sustainable fashion world for so long, the reasons for my shopping abstinence are so obvious to me but I’d be lying if I said I’ve explained them clearly to others. But what’s the point if the only people gaining knowledge about buying clothes in a more responsible fashion are the people who already do it? So let me take this opportunity to explain my reasons to you. I could be totally wrong but I think if you read this, you might rethink how and why you shop. This is in no way meant to be preachy or didactic, so I hope it doesn’t come off the wrong way. I just think it’s information you might want to have. So if you read it and hate it, just discard it from your mind. But if it makes sense to you, there is a possibility that it will change your life for the better.
After a grueling four years, my sister is officially a doctor! Her graduation couldn’t have come at a better time because my mom had a bad case of the shingles and I have a nasty fever. Good thing she hasn’t begun charging us because I think I asked her to check my tonsils at least 5 times. Anyhoo, here’s the outfit I chose to wear to her graduation at Carnegie Hall. If ya don’t like it, I blame the fever for impairing my judgement…
Quick update here – we’re extending the shop for Japan sale through May and June too so that we can raise more money. So if you’re in need of spring dresses, cute shoes, bags or one of a kind jewelry, now’s your chance to buy and have 100% of the proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross.
Kanye West may not be saying she’s a golddigger, but this costume certainly is. This wonderfully tacky getup (complete with horribly uneven shoulder pads) is a punny play on words that’s sure to get you some attention – whether it be good or bad.
What you get with this costume:
Gold lame shirt (you could probably wear this to Vegas after you’re done with it)
“No prenup” sign
Dollar Sign $ necklace
Sunglasses with $ and <3 * Chanel bag not included! (duh) Size: This could fit a S-XL Note: All of these items are secondhand
