Sustainable Look: Y2K Hoedown
One of the things I really love about curating a vintage shop is challenging myself to create entire looks from only my stock. There's something so satisfying about creating a whole look out of pieces that someone else has written-off - it's actually very addicting. Once you get a taste for it, the "normal" consumptive practice of point and click, instant gratification shopping feels boring.
To that end, I've decided to challenge myself each week to create a sustainable look from my stock to showcase here on the blog. Not only does it tick the box for shameless self-promotion, it's a small step towards shifting our collective attitudes as consumers towards a more sustainable, less wasteful means of cultivating one's personal style. It's also a bit like announcing on social media that you're going to go to the gym five days a week and post it on Instagram - I'm committing to it and you guys are going to hold me accountable, lest I suffer the public shame of being "all hat and no cattle". So. All of the looks I post here are pieces that are in the vintage shop. Many, if not most, you will probably recognize from their first runs during their respective eras.
So without further Ado, I give you today's contribution which I'm calling "Y2K Hoedown"
