Or is it? I’ve always believed that all fashion is costume – change your outfit, change your outlook, change others’ perceptions. We all switch up our style to fit the occasion: job interview; wedding; high school reunion, happy hour. My mood and my personality shift slightly just by changing my shoes. My biker boots bring out a different side of me than my platform cage ankle boots, or my gladiator sandals.
Shopping resale for me is my favorite way to change up my costume, with the added bonus of lining up with my green values. I love saving money, I love finding a treasure, and I love the high quality of better name brands and designer labels. I’ve always had champagne taste, don’t know why. In my early years, I was addicted to sewing Vogue Designer patterns. I was probably the only girl in Nebraska wearing Issey Miyake! What a kook.
