I have not yet posted about clothing or fashion on this blog, but I suppose now is as good of a time as ever to divulge that I buy all of my clothes secondhand to reduce the overall demand for clothing on this planet.

This past week I was in Chicago for Lollapalooza. I believe that festivals are one of the greatest place to get inspired by what others are wearing. In preparation for my week long journey I brought along a small bag filled with a few secondhand items to wear. I made sure all of the items would go together so that I could mix and match them which made packing and unpacking at each stop a cinch.

My festival packing list: 

  • Two pairs of jeans
  • Three dresses
  • Two tank tops
  • One vest
  • One set of PJ’s
  • Underwear and socks
  • One black bag
  • One hat
  • A pair of booties
  • A few pieces of statement jewelry

And thats it! The best part? My day 2 duds landed me on Elle Magazine’s website and my day 3 outfit was the cover image on Women’s Wear Daily! It just goes to show you that living a Zero Waste life does not mean you have to compromise your personal style or the quality of the clothing you wear.
