Wardrobe Refashion pledge

Wardrobe Refashion

I signed up for Wardrobe Refashion again. So here’s my pledge:

I, Edie, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new” manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 6 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!

I find abstaining from buying new clothes wonderfully easy, unlike some of the fashionistas out there, because I hate clothing stores (borrring!!). Shopping for thrift store finds is more fun than buying new, but I find that I do most of my shopping at the transfer station. That’s getting harder and harder to do, as more people discover the treasure trove, and I have less time to check out the recycle area. But, lucky me, over the last year or so I’ve collected plenty of pre-loved items. And yes, I’ll be hitting some thrift stores in Ireland, and will be coming home with a (hopefully) small selection of awesome Irishness!

See my previous projects.

And some inspiration: Unique clothes and retail store ideas.

  1. I also enjoy this type of shopping, although I don’t get to go to the transfer station. I have heard and seen the amazing items and clothing friends have found there!! I am excited, but I haven’t done that just yet. As far as thrift stores….Love them! My Mother brought me up right. I find the neatest and coolest things there. If you go often you can find some unforeseen treasures. Hope you find some in Ireland, happy searching…

  2. What a great post! It was a pleasure to stop by. I particulary like your banner.

    OWOH was really wonderful. I’m stopping by to keep in touch and send you good wishes.

  3. Awesome pledge. If everyone could just do this for a little, I think they would learn a bit about how little they really need new things – even though they really think they do.

    Way to go! Recycle.

    it’s easy for me… I hate shopping for clothes! and clothing is so resource intensive-MUCH better to recycle!
