Sustainable Shopping in 2020

New year, new (to you) clothes!

Posted on Jan 15, 2020 By Kaitlyn Grekoff

Looking to keep up your style, watch your budget and be a little more earth-conscious this year? Two words: secondhand shopping. Many are taking the "No New Clothes" pledge for this year, (or even this decade) and Dallas is up to the challenge! 

Sure you can always scroll through ThredUp, PoshMark, or the RealReal...or you can peruse pre-loved items IRL that you can touch, inspect, try-on and fall in love with for yourself. Whether you're looking for a fresh style that is like-new or stunning vintage pieces, you can find a little bit of everything if you know where to look! There are so many shops that if we included them all, this list would be as long as a CVS receipt, so we'll keep it to some just a few favorites!?

 

Vintage

When someone asks you where you got your coat, do you proudly proclaim "thanks, it's vintage" with beaming pride? Wander through these three shops to find one of a kind pieces from decades passed that you'll adore in this new year.
