Shopping Small Business Saturday!


Who says having sustainable style means wearing a bunch of naturally dyed neutral fibers? Encouraging slow fashion in your closet means you can make room for color through secondhand fashion pieces, like this muumuu! It was great exploring Astoria for Small Business Saturday, I had this awesome hand drawn map that took me to one of my favorite vintage shops, LoveDay31. I also made it down to Gowanus, Brooklyn to one of the most unique sustainable businesses in the city - Build it Green Reuse! This amazing place gives second lives to fixtures in homes. Need a bathtub? Kitchen cabinet? BIG Reuse has one from an old mansion for you! Too cool!

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!
