IN THE TRENCHES 🕊️✔️
Be your own kind of fashion soldier and support Fashion Revolution Week my friends
Did you know that 95% of all the textile waste that makes its way to landfill can actually be reused and recycled
It's time to reflect on how we respect the process of clothing manufacturing, be more mindful with what we buy, but it doesn't have to be hard
Ask questions of brands, use services like @goodonyou_app to help you make more informed questions and get your thrift on.
Charities like the Salvos give serious amounts of preloved clothing a second chance and you can too
I found this Country Road trench coat for $20
Then cut, customized and layered some $5 tees to add texture
The jeans are Jbrand and the bag is Michael Kors
Ain't nothin unfashionable about that
Viva la revolution

2nd HAND IN THE CITY ♻️✔️
One of my favorite preloved looks I dreamt up while living in New York and my fashion ode to the ANZACS today.
The men's cashmere sweater and beautifully beaten up vintage belt came from @housingworks buy the bag event
Basically you can search through barrels of clothing that haven't hit the shop floor yet and fill a bag for $5 or $10 I think it was
Needless to say I had quite a bit to take home on the Subway
All classic pieces that I got so much wear out of and I donated back when I returned to Australia
I added my stripe Breton top underneath just peeping from the sleeves to add texture and contrast
The khaki pencil skirt and never been worn leopard print heels came from @salvationarmyus on 46th St right near my apartment and where I created a thrift boutique for them!
Handmade one of a kind bag is by @alhandbags
Honestly his workshop in the fashion district is a fabulous Aladdin's cave
It was fantastic to be able to see the whole process and meet the people behind the brand.
Shopping sustainably and second hand is a great way to get involved in @fash_rev this week
Divert textile waste from spending decades in landfill and as I hope I display
You never ever have to sacrifice style
