Good Evening, Lady and Gentlemen Gaggers; tonight I'd like to present another very special Mytake, on the benifical reasons why we should reconsider pouring out our hard-earned money on sweat-shop threads and rather buy repoupoused items. Now, I don't mean to be a thriftwhore like Macklemore (remember him wearing your grandma's coat) or encourage you to dress like your granny/grandpa; but I thought I'd be nice to inform you of the perks of buying thrift and vintage.
You are Repurposing Recycled Items
Honestly, who doesn't want to contribute to a healthier eco-system and cleaner enviorment. Many sweatshops secrete fossil fuels and noxious fumes from their place of operation.
Did I also Mention You'd Be Supporting Small Enterprises and Anti-Slavery Movements?
In my country we have laws against slave labor; yet it's ironic that we support the slavery in places like China and India, who craft our Mall Hall clothes. Think about how they might lose business if we decided to obtain our garments elsewhere. We may end up giving someone a more dignifyed job. I've traveled all across America with my family to discover some Amazing kitchy clothing stores and fabulous old-timey finds.
You'll Be A Revoultionary Trend-Setter!
Okay...So I white-lied about being like Macklemore-but really, men shouldn't be afraid of donning a vintage pair of bell bottoms from the 70's or that dress coat from the 50's. Ladies, don't be afraid of dressing like Rosie the Rivieter, Audrey Hepburn, or even Marylin Monore, explore the possiblites of what you can be, when you're not wearing yoga pants and jelly sandals.
You Might Save Money
Buying a designer bag and dress for a total of 400 dollars, when you could buy the same items for more than half, should be a reason for shoppers to rejoice. You and Mr. Porky will be proud.
