You may have heard about Second Hand September. But, what is it?
Second Hand September is a campaign encouraging people to avoid buying new clothing for the entire 30 days of the month. The campaign, organised by the charity Oxfam, aims to raise awareness of the environmental impact of fashion.
This is sustainable living with style. It's not difficult to find great style by looking second hand. Just take a look at a few of my own finds. I'll tell you where I found each of them and how much I spent on the entire outfit.
The jacket in the above picture was purchased on Poshmark for $22, usually priced at around $180. It was brand new with tags.
The layering tee was $10 at Costco and I've had it for a while.
The slacks are from about 8 years ago and were around $25.
The boots were from a couple of years ago and were about $20.
The total for the whole outfit was under $80 and has enough classic pieces that they can move through decades and still be in style.
I love Poshmark, to buy and sell fashion, and know you will love it too! Make money and shop over 5,000 brands at up to 70% off. It's fun and easy - I promise!

In the above photo, the top was found on ThredUp for only $8 and was brand new with tags.
The slacks are the same from the picture before, at about $25.
The ballet flats were from Walmart from a few years ago and were under $6.
The total for this outfit was under $40.
Again, using classic pieces (like the slacks) make it easy to keep items. Any items that you stop wearing and they still look great can be resold on ThredUp or Poshmark.

As you can see, there are some beautiful options to style your wardrobe and you don't have to pay retail. It's worth spending time to look at items like these to fill your wardrobe. Seasonal styles are especially saved on, being that certain styles and colors don't necessarily stay in style.
Give it a try.
