Show me what you're made of.
Beside the Green Beret effect of the hard-hitting military trend, fashion has always been "going green." Thrift stores advocate the style-seeker and fashion-finder's green dream: Recycle your own clothing, Reduce your own spending, and Reuse other's clothing. Hence, the circle of cloth, knits, jeans, denim, and all clothing life. The green life is a giving one. We pass on hand-me downs, (which, again, I almost automatically spelled as "hami-down"--a hard habit to break), we share closets, we do giveaways, and we sell our lightly used clothing. Pat yourselves on the back for a green job well done.
You've seen it all before: Retro Metropark glasses, archaic H&M necklace, 33 cent Wal-mart knee highs, $3 thrifted combat boots, thrifted over-sized tee, Wet Seal shorts, and black Claire's accessories sum up my effort towards going green with my closet in this look. Among hugging trees, printing on both sides, and remaining anal about littering, this is how I do green.
"Hands behind your head!" You're guilty of saving the planet we live in. As much as I look like a broken down retro punk with my wild hair flying in the wind, bulky ruffle Roxy bag hanging from my shoulder, shorts peeking out from beneath a long white shirt, and wrists already locked in a plethora of cuffs, I'm just a goody two shoes do-gooder who's feeling a grungy mood.
Thrift stores always has a full battalion on it's shelves, so wear some combat boots to combat the war on waste and save some green while you're at it. Speaking of green waste, that's what this green can holds. Does it seem odd that although everything is "green," the actual recycling can is blue? Think about that while you walk away. In any case, make this green can and the blue can that's going green your best friends and show the world that you don't want it to die at our hands. Trends come and go, but green is always "the new black."
