#SECONDHANDFIRST™: Link-up, Project Pao
Chicago artist Pat Otto set about to simplify her wardrobe for a year by upcycling her old clothes. It is now year three.
When Pao started her blog, Project Minima, it was her artist's way to clean up the clutter in her house, namely her closets, and minimize her consumption. Thus, a part art, part sewing, part personal style blog was born.
For anyone looking for a fresh perspective on style and self expression, Pao is your gal. Sewing, crafters, artists: Project Minima may be just the thing to kick-start your own creativity for your upcycling/recycling projects. Women looking for non-conventional, and inspirational +40 women, put Project Minima on your reading list; Pao packs a punch.
Now it's time to share your #SECONDHANDFIRST
looks. Please feel free to leave a link to one of your looks featuring a sustainably shopped garment, accessory or item that's been swapped, thrifted shopped or ethically produced + sourced. We'll be hosting this community event for a week, so you'll have plenty of time to share and be social.
If you know some one (including yourself) that deserves to be featured as a #SECONDHANDFIRST SHOPPER, SELLER or ICON, please let us know in the comments.
