Introducing: Styled by Second Hand

I don’t believe that all good things come to an end. I think all good things evolve and change, and whether they remain good things is up to the universe.  If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, the cat is now out of the bag: I’ve been changing and evolving, and so with me comes this blog.

Second Hand Challenge began as just that, a challenge. Could I really shop solely second hand for an entire year? Somehow, with just a few minor cheats along the way, I did it. And I learned a ton along the way. Of those lessons: second hand shopping was not just a challenge for me, it had become a way of life.

I love the thrill of finding treasure on the cheap so much more than shopping in a department store or the fast fashion haunts I once loved.  Second hand challenged no more- my wardrobe, my home and my life are Styled by Second Hand.

On October 1, Styled by Second Hand will be here to share ideas about incorporating second hand elements into your world, and glimpses of how I use them in mine. I’ll share my favorite outfits, DIY home projects, the people and things of the past that inspire me, and hopefully, a new perspective on recycling.

I sincerely hope you continue to read and connect with me; please join me on this new second hand adventure. Until then, look for behind the scenes, inspiration and pretty stuff on the following: InstagramTwitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and bookmark this. See you on October 1!

So I gave up and told you guys last week that I was over thrifting and didn’t miss it. Continue reading
