National Secondhand Wardrobe Day

At the beginning of the year a friend threw out a challenge, all clothing must be purchased secondhand. Why I never thought about this is beyond me, since I own a shop that sells 2nd hand maternity clothing. But back to her challenge, pretty simple right, since I absolutely love shopping secondhand, but all my clothing?

It's now almost the end of August and I realized I haven't bought ONE article of clothing that didn't come from a 2nd hand shop! Oh hold up, lingerie does not count! I'm not buying them secondhand, I'll go without first!! So in celebration of today, I'm going to start blogging about my wardrobe.

Today I'm wearing:
Studio 1 dress 100% polyester and it's lined, $5.00 from Value Village
Gap belt (leather) $1.00 from St. Vincent de Paul
So, what's in your secondhand wardrobe?
Tschuss,
Elizabeth

Whenever I meet a new romantic interest, the first question I ask her is, "Are those silk panties yours?"

In Mofo from the Hood FeedTacoma has its very own Sassy McButterpants. Thanks for the good advice.

The silk panties solution to prolong marriage:

Wives should organize a secondhand silk panties exchange to keep things interesting for their husband.
