Last night I spent a couple hours combing a thrift shop. At one point, I was loaded down like a pack horse with designer jeans. I had J Brand, 7 for all mankind, Diesel… Blah blah blah. I ended up with a couple pairs of jeans, a cashmere sweater, silk blazer, linen scarf, Italian wool pencil skirt and a zipper dress.


I’ve been thinking a ton about that year (ok, 50 weeks- I caved on a pair of shoes) that I bought nothing new (except underwear and socks). I really fell in love with thrifting and discovered that thrift stores have some of the best clothing. PLUS it was so gentle on my wallet AND I felt like a hero for not contributing to the world’s waste.

So I think I’m avoiding malls again. Not that I shop much anyways.
