patronize your local thrift store!

Sure I come out feeling sort of itchy and dirty after trying on used clothing, but it's worth it when you can wear pretty clothes on the cheap and live sustainably. I like a brand new dress as much as the next girl (or guy, ha!), but when you think about just how much STUFF is manufactured and discarded in this world, it's enough to make you sick.

Today's outfit, brought to you by a thrift store depot (read: dumpster) in Long Island City (belt, $1); the Goodwill in Temecula, CA (dress, $5); Urban Outfitters (black cardigan, $20); and Zappos.com (Clark's sandals, $75).
