YES, I ALSO LOVE LOOKING AT THE SPRING COLLECTIONS ......
( ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE REALLY FLORAL, LIKE THIS YEAR ;)
BUT COME ON !!!
I KNOW YOU KNOW, THAT THESE 'NEW' STAPLES WE "MUST" HAVE TO BE 'IN' THIS SPRING ARE ALL MADE UP BY A BUNCH OF SUITS WHO DIDN'T SELL ENOUGH NEUTRALS LAST YEAR, AND HAVE DECIDED TO HERD US INTO YET ANOTHER TREND (AKA, MONEY-MAKING SCHEME) TO PAD THE LINING OF THE POCKETS OF SAID 'TREND MAKERS', ( HERD MAKERS ) ......
WE ARE SO MUCH SMARTER THAN THAT !!!
YES, THERE WILL INEVITABLY BE 'THAT PERFECT' FLORAL PANT I WILL SWOON OVER SOON.
BUT, MAY I BE STRUCK DEAD ( By a gentle bolt of lightening, or a cushy 'drift off in my sleep' heart attack ....) I WILL NOT BE SWAYED BY SOMEONE OR SOME PRETTY, SHINY OVER-PRICED LITTLE NUMBER THIS YEAR !!!
AND IF I DO SEE SOMETHING I TRULY LIKE, I WILL THRIFT IT.....
ACTUALLY IF I JUST WAIT TIL NEXT FALL, IT WILL BE IN MY LOCAL GOODWILL ANYWAY ;)
SENT ME THIS PLEDGE , AND I HAVE TAKEN IT WHOLE-HEARTEDLY ......
SHE IS STARTING A MOVEMENT THAT WILL CHANGE THE FASHION WORLD AS WE KNOW IT!
I TOOK THE SECOND-HAND PLEDGE !!!
I resolve to purchase items that are thrifted, swapped or handed down. My aim is to limit my consumption, and in doing so I intend to shop from second-hand sources first. I pledge to support business that commits to sustainable and smart design. I look first for upcycled, recycled, and pre-loved goods. I barter and swap when possible, and shop consignment, thrift-stores and flea markets when probable. I pledge to shop secondhand because I put the planet first.
YIPEE !!! I FEEL GREAT ABOUT THIS AND INVITE EVERYONE AND ANYONE TO JOIN IN :)
LET'S START A REVOLUTION !
THANKS, BELLA, FOR THIS GREAT START TO A BRAVE NEW WORLD !
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYBODY !!!!
