There aren’t that many entries yet, but I’m finding the ‘Never Worn’ series on True to Size very interesting because it explores the reasons why we aren’t wearing an article of clothing that we were initially excited about:
“Never Worn’ explores impulsive buying one garment at a time, as told by its owners. No judging or shaming, but a way to understand this behaviour and, together, make more conscious future decisions.”
Here are three to get you started:
- A dancer and her black and white polka dot asymmetric dress.
- A cultural manager and florist on his Comme des Garçons patchwork shirt.
- A space designer and her grey sleeveless dress from COS.

In line with the previous link, Runcarla enjoyed this article about artists who are upcycling used T-shirts.
“That Organic Cotton T-Shirt May Not Be as Organic as You Think.” Kkards found this article really interesting and very disheartening.
Nuancedream is not surprised that the fashion industry, while touting its sustainability initiatives, is producing and destroying so much merchandise. Shameful.
Vildy loves this unique DIY project: a flapper dress made out of 2000 pennies.
Lisa Pippus, of Style Is A Language, is one of Mary Beth’s favourite style writers. She is now also on Instagram, and her posts “are beautifully empowering, illustrated little mini-articles on how/why to identify your personal style brand and colour palette.”
Jaime loved this article, and particularly the introduction to Carla Rockmore, a new-to-her over-50 style icon.
Suntiger wanted to share Imogen’s post on warm versus cool grey hair.
Last but not least, nemosmom thought this post on how to analyze your mood board from m gets dressed was great.
