I’m wearing a vintage velvet blazer from Nothing on TV, Ouija t-shirt from Horror Block, scarf & stockings are old and boots VIA Dolls Kill.I‘ve been dying to wear this new vintage velvet jacket, but with the heat waves that have been coming and going lately, I wouldn’t have been able to stand it! Hopefully the weather will start to cool now, and I’ll be able to show off all my new vintage pieces. I’ve missed doing outfit of the days. Did you miss seeing them?
What’s with all the new vintage, you ask?
One of my resolutions that I’ve been so excited about was to take my sustainable wardrobe to the next level – the 99% sustainable level. This year I aim to buy primarily vintage and thrift items. It’s already so easy to find awesome gothy vintage with sites like ASOS Marketplace, Tunnel Vision and Nothing on TV. I’ve been stocking up on all of the velvet. Of course, there is that one percent left for things like my Horror Block t-shirts, which I am not giving up! Horror Blocks are a highlight of my month.
By the end of the year I hope to make my entire closet 99% sustainable. Without throwing anything out – obviously! That would be backwards thinking, wouldn’t it?
Do you think you’d be able to live 99% from thrift and vintage items? A lot of my idols from the eighties already did. They didn’t see Siouxsie Sioux wearing something awesome and run to the local Kmart or Urban Outfitters to buy a replica, they made it theirs.
