March to the beat of your own drum...

The famous french designer Yves Saint Laurent once said “Fashions fade, but style is eternal.”

Now isn’t that the truth? Who said we all had to fall into the “Trendy” mode when expressing ourselves?

Has your daughter ever told you that you stayed in the 80’s? But, did she end up being the same daughter who dug through a box of your old clothes and strutted your leggings with one of your neon saturated colored belts? Could you not help but sing the lyrics, “Right round like a record, baby”?

Fashions come and go, and then come back again. Fast fashion hurts all of us... Bargain prices disempower women, exploit our natural resources and contribute to limitless waste. So, go on and play with fashion but careful not to fall slave to it. You have a beat, so march to it!

Remember, consignment stores will carry your trendy “now” items but also those essential items you need and want to be able to flaunt your personal style, remember reuse. Visit frequently to carry on being you.
