The Vixen. The Palace. The Lady. They ALL do it. Do YOU?
Vix, Krista and Sara all took the pledge this year, to SHOP SECONDHAND FIRST. And you need to look no farther than their blogs to see the beauty and variety of a first rate, secondhand wardrobe. You can do it too. Shop your local Goodwill, charity, consignment and thrift stores, and don't forget you can also shop online, day or night, 24-7. The internet connects you to all sorts of great secondhand finds from all over the world.
For those of you who are not aware, there's a new vintage shop in town, and by town, I mean online. Which means, no matter where YOU live, you can shop there. Reasonably priced, and full of wonderful finds, handpicked by non other than our glorious goddess of bad-assery, Vix, the Vintage Vixen. Her rails can be found HERE at Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique. If you want to see how fine, shopping secondhand first can be, take a peek at just one of Kinky's many happy customers, Swedish glamour puss, Ulle Marie will take your breath away in her Kinky Melon cotton-candy colored vintage slip of deliciousness.
Lynn of Dylan's Dress celebrated her 50th birthday, and the icing on her cake was thrift store score in the the form of this dress. Krista celebrates, I'm not sure what, but I want to hoot and holler at her in her amazing vintage Pendleton red cape. I pretty much want to hoot and holler at her all the time, but that might be because she has such an incredible eye for colorful vintage pieces. And if you want to see post after glorious post of great secondhand finds, go no further than Curtise's The Secondhand Years. She ticks it amazingly, time and time again, wearing cool vintage frocks for her everyday life.
Do YOU have somebody or something you'd want to share, that celebrates SHOP SECONDHAND FIRST? Let me know in the comments or email me (please see About Me page for contact info) and a future post just might feature your picks!
