an ethical outfit: thrifting

fair


This outfit may seem a little too put together for thrifting, but it's a good fit for a few reasons: 1. Slip-on shoes are a must for trying on shoes and clothing, 2. two piece outfits are preferable to dresses when you're trying to get a sense of how tops and bottoms will look with items you already own, 3. a crossbody helps you go hands free when you're hunting through the racks, and 4. earrings are a better option than a necklace or rings because they won't get in the way while you're shopping.

Preparation is key!

Outfit Details: Green 3 Sweater, Rag & Bone Jeans, Mata Traders Earrings, The Body Shop Tinted Balm, Parker Clay Bag, The Root Collective Flats

UVa students rarely refer to the area of Main Street between campus and Downtown as Midtown, but townies, of which I am one, proudly do. It's a small area - only a few blocks long - but it boasts the best local pastry shop in town, an upscale market, several good restaurants built in old industrial buildings, a tattoo parlor, and a few hoity toity shops.

This outfit would be perfect for a sunny, cool day like today. I'd bring a local paper and a book in my bag then settle into an outdoor table at Albemarle Baking Company with hot tea and a chocolate croissant. Alas! Today is Homecoming, so I'll have to wait for a quieter weekend.
