Okay guys, I think it’s time we let hand-me-downs off the hook. I mean really, what’s better than getting new clothes without the decision making and temptations of shopping? Maybe that’s the older sister side of me talking because I don’t have bad memories of leftover sibling duds. There’s not much I love more than getting handed a box of clothes that someone didn’t want anymore.
Maybe it’s my love of 2nd hand clothes, or maybe my expression screams “someone please dress me!” but I tend to be the go-to when friends are cleaning out their closets (does that mean I can start to blame others for my bulging wardrobe??). Apparently this gift of mine knows no technological boundaries because recently I had the good luck to receive a box from my friend through blogging- Amanda.
She has some of the best thrifting luck I’ve seen and has collections to die for. This summer she was paring down her vintage wares and I had the good fortune of inheriting a box of clothing, belts, a couple bags and some nick-nacks. Are you kidding me? I couldn’t believe my luck- it was like months of good thrifting days all arriving on my doorstep! This vintage skirt was in the box and has been one of my favorite outfit staples this summer.
Erin wrote a post back in August on her love of hand-me-downs that I whole-heartedly agree with (and check out that adorable outfit!).
