The first time I bought a second-hand piece of clothing I was already in my mid 20’s and living in London, the vintage’s capital! But somehow I have always owned pre-loved clothes, as all younger sisters know sooner or later you inherit your sibling old stuff, which by the way was not as cool back then. Also, my mother was and is a very fashion forward woman, so using some of her clothes and accessories it always adds a certain flare.
In 2015 Livia Firth, a well-known fashion activist, started a movement known as #30wears in which she challenges consumers to wear the clothes they buy 30 times or more.
Personally, I have never been a shopaholic and actually using a garment 30 times doesn’t feel like a challenge to me. That is the reason I have chosen this outfit today, I think both pieces are a good example of how to increase the mileage in our wardrobe.
