Sustainable Shopping: New + Old

I did a little shopping this morning before I even got out of bed. Saturday mornings I drink coffee in bed and read blogs and peruse my Pinterest account. I rarely buy new items. My wardrobe is almost entirely secondhand (except for shoes and undergarments), but this morning I was inspired (by the sale price) to buy something special. I bought this Coralscape dress by Nancybird.  I learned about it via Miss Moss. nancybird-ss15-01

When buying something new I think it is a good sign when I can see myself wearing it in 10 years. With this particular piece, I can see a young woman buying it in 20 years when I bring it to a consignment shop.

I also got this vintage cotton wrap dress from Etsy. It was only $38 bucks.  It’s the perfect thing to throw over my Minnow Bathers swim suit. I’ll wear it with a vintage straw hat and granny sandals. The hat below is by Rachel Comey. The sandals are vintage SAS.


What do you wear to art openings and on lazy summer days? xo jam
