The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Two years ago I decided to stop buying new clothes.
It seems I have a purple tendency in all things including my wardrobe. The other day while visiting friends to check their hive I realised something funny.
My whole purple outfit had a prehistory.
My socks were a gift because another purpl-phile (is there such a word?) donated them.
My new to meshoes (navy) were at the second hand store or kringloop.
The prelovedtrousers had been too colourful for another friend.
My donatedcardigan donated during a wardrobe clearance from someone else.
The second chance fuschia tunic also spoke to me from the kringloop racks.
What an historic ensemble!
The friend we were visiting had remarked that I looked stylish!
Suppose I must illustrate this with a snapshot.
I guess all I need now is a raspberry beret.
