Upcycling, Recycling, and Swaps

Eco friendly fashionistas have evolved, it is no longer buying clothes that are 100 percent cotton and pure textiles.

It is also upcycling?

Upcycling is taking old outfits and deconstructing it to make a new wardrobe.  It is taking buttons and trims from that Alexis Carrington jacket your Mom bought that has gorgeous buttons and old sequin dress that can no longer fit.

To make great accessories, ala Etsy tutorials.

Recycling clothes is giving clothes to another person or a charity with the hopes that they would wear it again.

Swaps are going to fashion industry or blogger sponsored events and literally swapping the old clothes for new clothes with your fashionista friends.

Cheers to upcycling, recycling, and swaps!
