Consumerism is an issue that has major impact on our environment and I've been really trying to curb my habit of buying new outfits for weddings and events where I know I'll be seen by the same groups of people and friends. With all the facebook and instagram photos that go around, it's hard not to wear a dress only once before everyone has seen it already.
What these lovely ladies pictured here have shown me is that the trick is to recycling an outfit is to accessorize it differently. Belts, sweaters, stockings, jewelry and shoes can all make an outfit look completely different and new again. If the Duchess of Cambridge, the First Lady, and a huge fashion designer like Stella McCartney can recycle their outfits, then so can I.
