6 Secondhand Clothing Items I Bought

It’s been a while since I shared my last secondhand clothing finds. 8 months to be precise. I wish I didn’t buy any clothing since then. I wish my wardrobe was perfect and that I don’t want anything else. Reality check, this is not the case (yet!). The past 8 months I did buy clothing again. But as you know me, I bought these items secondhand. Today I want to share these purchases with you. Let me show you the 6 secondhand clothing items that I bought the past months.

All the shoes I own as a minimalist

The past few months I’ve had the feeling of wanting to analyse my closet. I’ve gotten rid of a lot of items this year, one by one. And so, I want to see where I am today. Do I have double items or things I don’t wear? There is one specific category of clothes which I’ve made conscious choices about the past months: shoes. And so, before I analyse my closet I am going to analyse my shoes first in this post. How many shoes do I own and how do I evaluate on the things I have?

6 secondhand clothing items I bought

Over the past months (my guess would be about 6 months) I bought 6 secondhand clothing items. Now that I write this down it seems like quite a bit. Yet, I’ve gotten rid of even more and so I’m still working on that capsule wardrobe I aspire to have. With these new purchases I really feel like I’m getting closer, I’m extremely critical on what I buy. Today I want to share which items I bought, how they fit in my aspired capsule wardrobe and how I reflect on these purchases.

Buying vintage jewelry

A few years ago I graduated and therefore I got some money from my grandparents to buy a ring. I could choose any kind, for them it was just important that I had an item to remember them by. At the time I was a beginner when it comes to buying secondhand, but my dad helped because be knew an auction site. We searched the site for a while and after a while a had found a beautiful ring: I bought it and had a secondhand piece of jewelry.

What I wear in a random week

I’ve written a lot about secondhand fashion already. Whether I think it’s the solution to the fashion crises we’re facing, what clothes I got rid of or bought and even a guide on how you can create a sustainable wardrobe. I always say that I am well on my way to a sustainable wardrobe and that secondhand fashion is fun! But I’ve never really showed you what my wardrobe looks like. Soon I want to document the entire thing and count how many pieces I own right now. But today I want to show you my daily outfits for the period of one week. To show you what secondhand fashion looks like on a daily basis. Continue reading “What I wear in a random week”

How to get rid of clothes in a responsible way

I am on a journey to my ultimate capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe can have many forms and has a different meaning to different people. To me it is a small wardrobe with items that I love and can all match. It is an ongoing journey. And so I buy things, but also get rid of things. When a piece of clothing does not serve me any longer, I want to get rid of it in a responsible way. But how do I do that?

4 secondhand clothing items I bought in August 2019

It’s time again, I bought ‘new’ secondhand clothing. A few weeks back I bought four secondhand pieces of clothing. My mom and I went to the thrift shop by coincidence. Since I got my driver’s license now, I wanted to practice driving in our car for the first time. The thrift shop in Enschede we went to is quite a long way and so we went by car. Not very sustainable actually, but the clothing is! Here’s more about the four pieces I bought. Continue reading “4 secondhand clothing items I bought in August 2019”
