You know the saying: April showers brings May flowers? Well, we are in for a blooming May. With the shift of the season, comes some changes- I'm going to fine tune what's WORKING here at the Citizen Rosebud, and what isn't. For starters, I'm considering shutting down the shutters to SHOE SHINE. I'm wondering if it's time to pass on our kicky community event to another blogger, or just retire it altogether. Any thoughts?
|Shiny Sayonara? Say farewell to our Stellar Shoes link-party.|
AND, I'm thinking of making the Secondhand First™ link-up a weekly thing- open to anybody wanting to post interesting articles and images of people, places and things that are part of shopping secondhand first. It'll be a no pressure, just a way to draw together kindred spirits, and share inspiration and information among us. That way, should you miss one week, no worries, you can always link up to the next one (I'm looking at you, dear Greetje.)
Refresh yourself with our previous link-ups:
Another fantastic read was Roz's post yesterday on Fashion Revolution Day, and the social media event, #insideout. I loved seeing friends from all over participate; it's so inspiring to see so many people cry out for change! Speaking of inspiration, I can't get enough of the Vixen, ever. So good to see her and her Kinky Melon Vintage Boutique get a fair share of good press. We need more like her- too bad the mold broke when the gods made her. Another unique and compelling beauty, always puts a spring in my step whenever I visit her blog...none other than Spanish charmer, Sacramento who seems to blooms madly, 24-7.
Coming up! Aside from roses, we've got some GREAT posts slated for next week, featuring some of my favorite people, and I think you are going to love reading about them!
And now....it's YOUR time to share! Do you have a thrift store score, vintage treasure, or upcycled project that gives you joy? Outfits, interviews, or links to posts that can inspire better sustainable shopping choices are welcome! Link party stays live until April 30th, so add your url to a photo or post and celebrate YOUR Secondhand First™ values.
