Are you guys any good at recycling? I’m not. I can get along with putting my cardboard and plastic in the green bin, but I can’t say I’m a regular at the bottle bank. Which is terrible, I know. Must try harder.
What about recycling clothes? That’s where I think I redeem myself. I never, ever throw clothes away, unless they’re completely ruined or stained beyond the powers of Persil. I’m an eBay aficionado, a charity shop donator and a hand-me-down sister. Every few months, I’ll purge my wardrobe of all things unstylish, unwearable and unloved and give them away through my tried and tested channels. I’m utterly ruthless – nothing escapes my critical eye. So what if peg leg trousers are ready for a comeback? Be gone! Maybe I will wear a white skirt come summer but right now it’s February! Get out!
This inevitably leads to fashion mourning. The white skirt was covered in purple pansies and would’ve looked positively dreamy with the grey boots I’m wearing today. And yes, peg leg trouser did make a comeback… and yes, I could’ve worn them with my black leather jacket and heeled brogues. Hindsight, dear followers, is completely useless.
Have you ever gotten rid of something and immediately regretted it? Those shoes you gave to your sister and tried to steal back under cover of darkness? Or the cute clutch you donated to charity and bought again a week later? (Yes, I’ve done both of these things…) I’d love to know!
