You know that the recession has hit an all time low when the bastion of all things stylish and sophisticated dedicates a section to buying second hand. Granted, it was billed as "buying green", which is every bit as admirable (and necessary) these days as saving coin.
I think that if Town & Country is going this route, they ought to check out the Columbia (SC) Design League's 4th Runaway Runway on April 19th at 701 CCA on Whaley. Read a blurb about last year's from the blog Leonardo's Notebook. It is a fashion show where the model's costumes are made entirely of recycled materials. It is a fun and chic event, and yes, you'll be able to come back here and read about it, too! :) Now, as far as I've seen before, these are not outfits that one would actually want to wear out and about, but the show presents fantastic ideas and a message of reusable chic that I think we all need to hear (and act on) these days.
Alright now. Jr. is napping and Mr. M has headed off to do some more work, so I'm headed back to my haven of blankets and books. Have a beautiful day, all!
PS- Be sure to tune in March 28th and 29th, when I'll be posting from Charleston Fashion Week!
