Making a difference


Most of us have heard of the term ‘Fast Fashion’ as it’s been all over the media in recent years. What does it mean? basically the latest catwalk designs are reproduced at high speed for a low cost.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In other words, promoting a throwaway society.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Due to personal reasons I buy the majority of my clothes these days secondhand or from consignment stores. I’m not ashamed to say it. I love buying one-of-a-kind pieces that are not seen in every store at the local shopping mall. More and more people are looking at this type of shopping as well, there isn’t the stigma like there was years ago.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Besides being good for my bank account, I also feel I’m doing my bit for the environment. Reducing waste plus minimising the impacts of fast fashion on the environment. Huge amounts of emissions, pollution, and waste by the use of synthetic fibres like acrylic, nylon, polyester are having a massive effect on the environment.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It’s one of the reasons we decided to get into the reselling of our own plus size clothes as well as others clothes. To give the pieces that were no longer worn by their owner for whatever reason a new chance, new home, a new life instead of being thrown in the bin. Plus our clothes are more affordable. Win, win!!⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We also like to dabble in up-cycling, mainly denim jeans into handbags. A girl can never have too many handbags, that are all original. It’s amazing what you can make out of ordinary items into showpieces. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We are big believers in Reuse what we can, Repair what needs it, Recycle as much as possible.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It just makes sense to us.⁣⁣
