Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Gussy – are you wearing green?
Gussy wears it every day and thinks you should too. It’s easy, will make you look and feel great – and hey – save you from getting pinched (in the wallet)
How to be fashionably green every day you ask?
Choose to Reuse.
- Take a look in that closet and reinvision a couple things – can those beloved jeans become cutoffs for the spring? With a little snip and stitch can that sweater become a vest? That poofy sleeved, light pink, to the floor bridesmaid dress a black strapless cocktail number? Want that favorite shirt that’s now too tight (it’s not your fault, all the rain this winter forced you to stay indoors, away from the gym and in front of the TV watching Netflix marathons of Glee) – Gussy can turn it into a matching set of earrings and a bracelet. Take a second and new look at things you already have before buying something new.
- Let others reuse your wardrobe by selling or trading your old stuff at a clothing exchange store like Crossroads. Not only will your things find new homes with others, you’re keeping them away from landfills and getting paid to pick up and shop for new (to you) finds of your very own…
So, apple, sage, forest, reused…all shades of green are worth wearing…every day..
to green wonders and wanders,
