The Pack is Back

march312018RFB4
The fanny pack is back! When I brought this fanny pack home from one of my thrifting outings & showed it to my parents, I thought it was quite funny when my dad said “Hey, that is exactly like the one I used to have!”

I wish I would have had a stylish fanny pack for when I went to Norway, it would have made things so much easier! Today I am sporting a microfibre-free outfit by wearing all natural materials! I thrifted these white pants, originally they were huge flare bellbottom jeans and to make them more modern I cut and sewed them to look like jeans that are more in style today – it was ridiculously easy!

Cry to Heaven

batoutofhell3RFB1
It was the first time I had driven after my surgery for endometriosis, and the first time I had gone out alone after the surgery as well. I decided to pop into Better Off Duds for a peek. I was looking through the band t-shirts, I had reached the large section and something told me to flip one more hanger and THERE IT WAS… a vintage Meat Loaf concert t-shirt. In the 7+ years that I have been actively thrifting I have always wanted to find a vintage Meat Loaf shirt. I could not believe I had finally found one. God bless vintage sizes as well because this shirt was marked as a large, but fits like a small. I think Meat Loaf albums are truly creative masterpieces (artistically and musically) and I don’t think I’ll ever stop being excited about this incredible find. Also, check out this vintage suede skirt I found as well… a match made in heaven.

Purple Rain

I was so excited when I found this purple suede jacket at my local thrift store. I wish the items I thrifted came with pictures of how the original owners wore them.

Second Hand News

secondhand3RFB
I am very excited and proud to announce that this entire outfit is all secondhand clothing and accessories. Buying clothes secondhand saves the atmosphere from further carbon pollution and the world from further chemical toxicity that would have been produced to create new clothing. Not only is my entire outfit all secondhand, but it is all made from natural fibres that will break down eventually – unlike synthetic clothing which releases plastic microfibres every time it is washed, which has lead to a massive pollution problem. I also want to mention that this entire outfit costed me around $100 Canadian. You can buy secondhand clothing, save money (and donate/spend it on things that really matter), and still look amazing! I encourage you to scout out your local thrift stores, vintage stores and Value Villages and have fun discovering treasures and embracing your true style through a more earth-friendly alternative.
