This event has been on my to-do list for a long time. The best thing a girl can do is continuously revolve her clothing and who better than to give clothes to then her friends? What do you do with clothes you choose to take out of your wardrobe cycle? Donate? Sell? Give away?
Personally I do all of the above. Clothes and accessories that are still in great condition and sellable, I sell to Crossroads (I worked there for 3/4 of last year, I will be doing a post specifically on selling to Crossroads) and clothes that are somewhere in the middle I give away to friends or my neighbors that have 7 daughters.
I was also inspired by the February issue of Matchbook Magazine. In it there is a profile of a duo company called Cuyana and the ladies of Cuyana inspire in their customers a philosophy of buying "fewer, better things". They also started the Lean Closet Movement, "a mission to create more intentional buying and to simplify one's closet. [They] want people to focus on investing in key pieces that they're always goint to wear, and encourage them to take all those forgotten things that they've accumulated and gift them to others who can use them."
Isn't that a great concept? I know, I know, you may be thinking, it's really hard to resist the cheap and fast fashion of Target, F21, H&M etc. but in the long run, it is worth it to invest in better pieces. It's definitely something that I have to train myself to do too!
ps: Thanks Becky for the flyer!
