Edit: I just realized I made this post sound like this blog is entirely dead! It isn’t- I’ve just been more focused on trying to live sustainably.
I haven’t written here for the past few months because I am currently more focused on living sustainably.
It’s important to me, to live my values. I hate to say it, but a lot of humor has left my life. I don’t feel most things are funny anymore, but I am feeling happier on a larger scale.
I’m not perfect at living to my values, but I am working to improve bit by bit.
EGL fashion is surprisingly sustainable, versus many other fashion styles. This is namely because of our widespread acceptance with buying secondhand. The lolitas who are against buying used are generally new to the fashion and coming from the “used is dirty and gross” mindset common in a lot of people who primarily buy fast fashion- I’ve even seen it in people I used to call friends.
Note: If you often buy secondhand for sustainability or ethical reasons, don’t surround yourself with people who regularly claim buying used is gross and dirty. This may aid you in betraying your values to fit in. This will result in conflicting feelings, happiness from fitting in, but also guilt from going against your values.
Learn from my mistakes, get away from those people, they’ll only lower your self-esteem as you make purchases against your values.
Now, my closet is greatly minimized. But, there are still plenty of things for sale. I have even more to list! If you are interested in my old EGL, vintage, or other alternative style clothes for sale, check out my Poshmark here.
Where to find me right now:
If you want to check out my blog about sustainable living, check out my blog ZeroWasteCamper.wordpress.com.
I’ve also been cooking more, so I’m also posting bento to my old bento blog: thebentobuff.wordpress.com
I also just started a doll photostory at zerowastedoll.wordpress.com but as I only have one chapter up, I’ll note it could be dead by the time you check it out.
My new Instagram handle is @bentobuff, if you’d like to contact me.
Maybe I’ll streamline everything into this site, but I don’t know. My sustainability journey blog, among others, doesn’t feel like it fits the tone of Thrifted Luxe.
There’s also issues with the site. Each and every post has “Allow comments” enabled, but it doesn’t show on wordpress or the blog, on mobile or PC. So it limits interactivity, which upsets me. I don’t know when it stopped working, or how to fix it.
I’m also hanging out in various Facebook EGL groups, maybe I’ll see you around.
