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.

What I wear in a random week

I’ve written a lot about secondhand fashion already.

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.

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”
