Fun Fashion Quote

This quote from writer and teacher Rebekah Taussig touches on an interesting aspect of consigment store finds I hadn’t considered before:

“I buy most things from consignment stores. They’re easier on the environment, and I’ve grown to appreciate things that are one-of-a-kind. If something has a hole or has been ripped in some way, if it’s been worn and has a story, that’s what I want. And part of that is because I value the uniqueness of my body. I cherish the things that are singular in my body, and that translates to cherishing the weird T-shirt, or the super chunky, ugly sweater that no one has worn in 30 years.”
