I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could pull of a week straight of wearing second-hand clothing/items! So, this past week, I put my money where my mouth is, and tried it. Since my wardrobe is not 100% full of second-hand clothing… I mixed in some clothing I already had in my closet.
What I found was, challenge or no challenge, I usually am wearing a vintage or consignment piece of clothing! So, this really wasn’t a huge challenge for me. The true challenge would be wearing outfits (top to bottom) that are 100% from a second-hand store…okay, maybe not the underwear, but you get the picture. Either way, I had fun compiling these outfits and hope you see that you can shop second-hand and still be stylish and SAVE MONEY.
