Item 2- Rust T-ShirtPosted: August 25, 2011
What? Rust t-shirt
How long have I had it? 6 months
Where did I get it? thrift store
What do I love about it? It’s comfy. Nice material. I like the color. I love that it’s made by Banana Republic, a brand that I normally wouldn’t buy due to ethical concerns. This is one of the main reasons that I love to shop at thrift stores. Yes, they’re usually cheaper. Yes, it keeps items out of the landfill. But, one of the biggest benefits to me is that I can buy whatever I want without having to worry about the human rights and environmental record of the company that made it. Sadly, it’s the “buy whatever I want” part that’s made my wardrobe larger than I wanted it to be in the past. Alas, 36/365!
