I haven’t really posted for #ownclothesoctober yet but I’d like to talk about those special pieces in our wardrobes that will never be thrown away no matter what. These pieces have not only a permanent place in our wardrobes but a sentimental place in our hearts. For me it is my 2 Alexander McQueen scarves. The first is the iconic black silk scarf with white skulls that was cemented in to our wardrobes in 2007 by people such as Kate Moss, Nicole Richie, the Olsens and Lindsey Lohan. Shortly after every high street retailer was stocking skull print scarves and this trend took quite a few years to die off. I haven’t worn this scarf for many years but I will never get rid of it. For me this scarf is quintessentially what the McQueen brand represents, tough and feminine, skulls and silk and it will stay with me for years to come. The other scarf is the commemorative “GOD SAVE MCQUEEN” Union Jack scarf that was produced after his death in 2010. It is a touching tribute to my favourite designer and a bittersweet celebration of his life and his work. I like the idea of holding onto clothing and looking back on it many years later or passing them down. Too much clothing is thrown out and we should celebrate the memories associated with our favourite items. What’s item do you plan to keep forever? Is it sentimental or are you keeping it for a certain occasion? Let me know! #ethicalfashion #reused #clothesarenttrash #fuckfastfashion #sustainablefashion #sustainableclothing #alexandermcqueen #discoverunder1k #reloved #ownclothes #wardrobestaple #longevity #neverthrowaway

I’m still pretty new at online sales so I haven’t really stepped up my packaging game. I keep it simple for now with tissue, twine and printed thank you cards. I love those fancy mail packages but USPS has free packaging so I’ll probably never stray. I’m thinking some branded stickers would be nice though. What are some of your packaging go tos? ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #packaging #sustainablefashion #sustainabledesign #reseller #resellerrevolution #conciousshopping #resellersquad #fashionstyle #goodwillhunting #thehunt #girlboss #thriftshopper #buyused #textilerecycling #thriftedup #thriftedfashion #getthelook #shopsustainable #chooseused #poshmarkseller #poshmark #poshmarkcloset #thriftedfinds #upsycle #shopsecondhand #clothesarenttrash #vintageclothing #secondhand #slowfashion #femaleownedbusiness

It’s Oct 1. Did you take the #secondhandseptember challenge?? . Things are a changing......✨✨✨ Teens are “interested in buying eco-friendly fashions, like pants made from recycled plastic, not stuff they’ll just throw away after a few uses. 🌟And they’re gravitating toward online second sites where clothes can be used over and over again. In fact, the secondhand fashion business is projected to reach $64 billion by 2028, nearly 1.5 times the size of fast fashion, according to a report by Global Data Retail” ✨✨✨ @apnews . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

I love these jeans. I love the way they fit. I wear them religiously cause they fit! They don’t hurt when I sit, they let me move without feeling like something is constricting me. I got them #secondhand @clementine_rva a few weeks after I had Navi cause nothing was fitting and now they are a bit big on me. Big like I am constantly pulling them up and I am just not meant to wear a belt:( . I need a new pair of jeans that fit 😭so I can wear them everyday! I went on my thrifting hunt and failed. My body has changed and I just cannot handle anything tight. No skinny jeans, no stretch, no mid rise. I want boyfriend, reg fit, high rise. This tummy “pillow” as Rai calls it ain’t going anywhere so I need to be able to breathe and not pull at my waist line EVER. . Since I couldn’t find anything #secondhand at the local stores, I had to think new:( which I hated, but felt like I didn’t have any other choice 🤦🏾‍♀️ ) I was planning a trip to @madewell to try on their #fairtradecertified jeans and every time I had a chance to go something fell through. Then I looked at those jeans I love so much and was like... I wish I could just have these, one size smaller andddd DUH I can. I looked on @poshmark and found a pair and now I am constantly looking to see if they took my offer and when they will get to me🖤 . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork #postpartumbody #lovemytummypillow

“Thrifted outfit a day keeps the landfill away.” - @petitelittlebee . This is probably one of my favorite #secondhandfinds . Lightweight, nursing friendly, not tight in any part of my body and I can move in it freely. These days I am often on the floor, on the couch, on the floor, on the couch, half way in my car, then out, fully in my car, then out, almost in my tub to wash a poopy cloth diaper, scrunched up somewhere holding the baby so he won’t wake up, getting stroller out and putting it back in, carrying all the backpacks and the baby! Only thing I don’t love about this outfit is that I gotta take it all off to go to the bathroom.🤦🏾‍♀️ But I think the positives outweigh this problem. . #secondhand Black romper/jumpsuit. Summer look. ☀️ Since I love this outfit sooo much, I am gonna be trying to wear it through the fall and maybe winter. It probably will be come nursing unfriendly like the white linen dress unless I use a scarf again so if you have any suggestions please let me know. I’ll be posting my cooler transition ideas later today. Navi just woke up from his nap while I was taking this pix, that’s who I am smiling at:) . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Rai #secondhand #ootd . .

Rai #ootd. The boots and onesie her lovey pillow are wearing are #secondhand. Those PJ’s are 2 sizes 2 small for her but #lovedclotheslast. She’s been asking for cowboy boots for a while now, but we haven’t found ones that fit. Luck would have it that I went to @cloverkids_rva to return some diaper soap and they had a pair in her size!! . My kids really haven’t been exposed to the traditional buying new shopping experience of one shoe multiple sizes. All they know is multiple shoes in their size. If they can’t find it in their size, then we wait and look again later. I like the wait, consume less and what you really want. . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Do you see that giant stack of clothes being jampacked into one corner of the warehouse? when you see this IRL it actually makes you realize: HOLY $H!t how much clothes is actually out there?? THIS IS ONE WAREHOUSE just one, full of clothes that is being recycled into our ecosystem ♻️ ⁣ ⁣⁣ Shopping second hand clothes could seem odd too many but if you really think about it... How often do you actually repeat your outfits or re-wear your clothes? How many times do you buy something + never wear it? How many times do you buy something + wear it maybe once or twice? ⁣⁣ 🌎⁣⁣ Donating clothes + giving someone else the opportunity to shop, re-use + re-love is so good for the environment! When second hand clothes are reused, they require no new materials to produce - no extra energy, water, toxic chemicals are added into the environment. Keeping used clothes out of the waste stream means there's less need for new landfills. And we're saving energy from having to collect + dispose trash. ⁣⁣ 💞⁣⁣ Thank you @fashionwithouttrashin for setting up this cool experience to network in the @helpsy warehouse to get to see THIS IRL ✨ Thank you + your awesome co-hosts @fashionistasfabfinds + @lillynbloom_ for making this such an awesome experience! You are each such tremendous uplifting leaders in our community + have each been so welcoming, + super SUPPORTIVE to me since I joined the @poshmark community. ⁣ 💫⁣⁣ I had a blast reconnecting w/ some of my favorite NJ/NY poshers + meeting poshers for the 1st time 😍⁣ ✈️⁣⁣ See you ladies soon @ #poshfest2019 ! 🌵☀️Can't wait! 😘⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

Rai #secondhandseptember #ootd . This gal has the exact opposite style of Sana. She picks clothes that will let her perform physically at her utmost capacity. .

#secondhandseptember White linen dress. Winter look. ❄️ K forget nursing in this.🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️ I’d add a coat and stockings, I just could not handle how hot I was already so just imagine it. And...we are not doing the no white after Labor Day thing anymore right? . After some thought and relooking at the 2 previous posts for this linen dress, I was gonna nix it for any fall/winter wear cause I can’t nurse in it......BUT I forgot about my staple accessory in cooler days....a scarf!!! It will keep my chest warm and then I’ll add a jacket/cardigan. But....I have a weird thing of wearing sleeveless without something covering my armpits before putting on a jacket/cardigan of any sort. Any ideas on how to deal with that crazy issue and be able to nurse?? . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Grateful and inspired by youth around the globe standing up for environmental justice today 🙏🏻 We all share a responsibility to make choices to support the healing of our planet 🌎 Joining the #reappreciationrevolution is one big step. All you have to do is choose to appreciate what you already have instead of feeding the insatiable consumer impulses we have been programmed with by media and megalithic marketing campaigns. You don’t need new stuff to have killer style. In fact, new stuff gets in the way of creating a style unique to you! 💃🏻 Love this post from @mindful_mending #repost ・・・ That new top you saw online isn't worth polluting the earth for ❗️Don't support fast fashion.

#secondhand White linen dress. Fall look. 🍂 I put a burgundy shirt under the dress, cause I need my chest to be warm to feel warm....but now it is impossible to nurse in! 🤦🏾‍♀️ The dress fits a little loose, which I like and the straps were too long, I pulled em up and did a little stitch job. . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Earlier this summer I went on a #secondhand “shopping spree” cause nursing was not working out in the clothes I had. I bought a few pieces and now that we are maybe wrapping up summer I wanted to brainstorm how I could use these pieces into fall and maybeeee winter. . #secondhand White linen dress. Summer look. ☀️ Worn rarely cause kids and I am too scared to stain it 🙄. Def a bad choice on my part to even buy this dress, but it did get wear on our anniversary and a bday party. I need to just suck it up and wear it more cause it’s nursing friendly. . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Sana #secondhand #ootd. #getitgirl . When I used to shop new I loved the thrill of finding something awesome for a ridiculous low price. You know that feeling right? I know better now, that low price is the sacrifice of someone else’s life and the planet, so no thank you! . How can I still get that thrill and not contribute to injustices in the fashion industry?!?!

This almost ended up in a landfill. Stitched it into a useful bag too cute to part with 💗 Here is an example of a zip bag created some months back. Discovered at a local @goodwillintl , the fabric is a mid-weight denim with floating white threads weaved in to create the “polka dot” affect - It has become an absolute FAVORITE for storing adored heirlooms 💗 #goodwilltreasures

Navi’s #ootd. All #secondhand. . Saving money is the number one reason for buying used clothes. BUT...it also keeps good items out of landfills and decreases the demand for new manufacturing.

What’s your waste size? Did you know that it’s estimated globally that only 20% of our discarded textiles are recycled. Which means 80% are incinerated or landfilled. What do you do with your old clothes? Did you know that most torn or stained textiles can be recycled/ downcycled? Here are 10 pieces I’ve parted with over the past 10 years. Some are secondhand pieces that I resold or donated. Some I dropped off at Wearable Collections and Goodwill. Others I sold on eBay and Tradesy. #clothesarenttrash #wearitagain #wearablecollections #secondhandseptember

My sister and I used to wear these bracelets when we were kids, I just gave them to my girls. We hold a lot of sentiment, care, value, timelessness in jewelry.

Back to school, 2nd grade and Kindergarten!Sana’a trying to put her hand around Rai for this pix, Rai is not having it. Rai’s jeans and shoes were on her back to school second hand shopping list. . When I was younger, I don’t think I even knew about second hand stores. If I did, I think I thought they were only for people who couldn’t afford new clothes. Every year we went and got brand new clothes for back to school. It was soooo much fun to have “new” clothes. These gals love their “new to them” clothes as much as I loved my “new” clothes and it makes me so happy that they don’t see a difference. Parents spend an average of $200 per child on back to school items, most of that $200 is on clothes:( Our household, we spent +\-$60 on second hand clothes and +\-$115 on supplies for both girls. Check out my stories for our second hand school supplies from @scrap_rva . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork #backtoschool

• SMALL SPACE, BIG BOXES • my bed had taken the place of an open floor space, folding table, packing & shipping area, desk, research center, and so much more. • TODAY • it houses the empty @uspostalservice boxes as they wait to be filled with items from the @helpsy warehouse. • SOLUTIONS • it’s better when faced with a logistical issue to just search for and accept solutions so that the job can get done quicker and I can move on to the next task on my list. There are lots of other ways I could have done this but this felt like the straightest point between two lines. And as much as I try never to use my bed for work... there’s only so much space. • WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS THAT DISRUPTS YOUR HOME? • I’m curious to hear about ways your home business clashes with your living space. • • • • • • • #poshmark #poshboss #helpsy #clothesarenttrash #recycle #textilerecycling #poshmarkseller #mysterybox #youtube #unboxing #anthropologie #yesusps #poshstyle #poshpackages #poshmarkpackages #reseller #poshlife #secondhand #thrift #thriftedfashion #theifted #thrifter #sustainable #sustainablefashion #sustainableliving #sustainableclothing #vintage #ecofriendly

Another summer night a few weeks back in NOVA. I loveeeee the imagery of a carnival. I feel like I am in a movie, it’s just so dreamy.✨ The girls lost their minds going on all the rides. See more of my carnival obsession in my stories.🎡 . One of my favorite things I love about second hand shopping is that you shop by size not style. How many times have you found a cute XYZ and pushed through every hanger only to find out it’s not in your size. Then pondering if you should just get the one that doesn’t fit as good because it’s just so cute and on sale and you just really want it. You then buy it and never really feel that great in it so you just don’t wear it as often and then it just hides in your closet only to get donated or trashed😬 in the future. We have all done this, right!? Raise a hand in the comments if you have. No judgement, just comradery. . I think I would much rather go through an entire rack of XYZ in my size of different styles, knowing that anything I see I can try on, than find a super-cute XYZ and find out they don’t have it in my size. . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Living that last bit of summer life. ☀️ This was a few weeks back in NYC, it was the most beautiful day! . The three of us are in our consignment shop clothes. In the past I’d go to one huge consignment sale per season and shop for the girls. Now they have opinions on what they like and don’t and how they like it to fit so we go to the consignment stores with a list of what they need and they pick it out themselves. We have way less clothes and they wear every single item because they love it!🖤. . Do your kids wear all the clothes they own? If not, why? . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Our throw away culture is putting pressure on our planet and people and it is unsustainable. Here is your chance to start to make some changes. For this whole month, I challenge you along with @oxfamgb to only buy second hand. The focus is on clothing, NO NEW CLOTHES for 30 days! . #secondhandseptember #fastfashiondetox #clothesarenttrash #shopsecondhand #challenge #sustainablefashion #climateemergency #peopleoverprofit #changemaker #sustainableindian #ethicalfashionblogger #browngirlsgoinggreen #ethicalinfluencernetwork

Clothes aren’t everything but their history is meaningful and they can deliver joy. Some of my favorite memories of my mother were shopping with her. We often argued about colors. I see this as pink orange - she would probably call it red. She was a genius print maker and was probably right. We’d call a truce in the food court at McDonalds. I wonder who wore this 60s nightgown to bed? I can’t imagine wearing something so beautiful to sleep. I have a hard time spending money, mostly because I’ve never had much. I also stress about mainly buying used, which can be time consuming, expensive and frustrating. I bought this nightgown from over a half century ago, that I’ll wear as a dress. It is the pick me up I didn’t even know I needed. #clothesarenttrash

Still working my way through photographing all the pieces I have bought so far. It’s proving a longer task than I first though alongside working full time 😓 It will be worth it in the end and I’m enjoying the process along the way and learning new skills. Here’s a few pieces that are stand out to me so far. A silk twist front printed top, a monochrome printed shirt, a linen shirt and the lovely #wyldr print dress. Aiming to get a few more pieces up over the weekend! . . . #sustainablefashion #thriftstorefinds #silkshirt #secondhand #ethicalfashion #flatlay #nevernew #clothesarenttrash #printandpattern
