Not Bad Plaid, Rad Plaid!

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with the Neicy Nash show "Clean House" - hilarious, because I am not the tidiest. I'll never forget an episode with Cassie Silva (Maybe, you too were obsessed with MTV'S Search for Elle Woods?) where they transformed her father's California home from a hoarder den to a red plaid haven. Cassie exclaimed, "It's not bad plaid, it's rad plaid!" And now I hear this literally everytime I see something plaid. Cue, this jacket. It's rad plaid! Here's a breakdown on some of this week's sustainable outfits!


Annie Hall Inspired

Jacket - Rails via Rent the Runway Pants - Scotch & Soda via Rent the Runway Shoes - Rouge Helium via Buffalo Exchange Top - John Galt via the Queens Brewery Clothing Swap Earrings - Handmade by me!


I've Got Poinsettias on my Mind

Top - The Fifth Label via Rent the Runway Skirt - Romeo + Juliet Couture via a gift from my friend, Lindsey! Shoes - Capezio, gotta love theatre show repurposing!


I just want to live in the world of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!

Top - Reformation Skirt - Forever 21 via a hand me up from an usher at a theater I used to work for! Thanks, Lisa! Jacket - Rails via Rent the Runway Jewelry - Vintage Shoes - Unlabeled via a Connecticut Goodwill

I've really enjoyed this Rent the Runway subscription - it's helped me cut back on laundry, has forced me to get creative with using certain pieces, and has been fun! - Definitely my best Black Friday find!

Just a reminder, The Hand Me Up Club features sustainable #OOTD ensembles! What does that mean? It means every outfit you see here is borrowed, thrifted, gifted, upcycled, recycled, rented, swapped, or sustainably made! It's all happening, it's all possible!
