A New Year’s Resolution

For 2011, why not make a resolution that is good for the planet, good for the community, and good for your conscience? Buy less new things the things you need, buy secondhandthe things you no longer need, donate. And the things you love, wear with confidence and look like a million bucks. Case in point:

From CultureMap Houston, by way of Unconsumption:

First lady Michelle Obama surprised the fashion world when she appeared at the recent “Christmas in Washington” concert in a black dress with a black lace overlay purchased from a New York vintage shop.

It is believed to be the first time that a first lady has worn a second-hand dress to a high-profile public event.

We can’t wait for 2011. Our resolution? Let’s make it a year of style and substance!

    1. You’re welcome – thanks for posting! Have you found any great secondhand finds yourself lately? We’d love to see ’em either here, on our Facebook Page (facebook.com/agoodlook.goodwillnynj) or on Twitter (@goodwillnynj). Happy nearly New Year!


      1. Yes, I found a really interesting pair of “Unity” jeans at Buffalo Exchange. They were actually brand new. I didn’t realize until looking at them a bunch of times that the stitching & tags were reminiscent of a whole bunch of brands. I have been meaning to do a blog post about this very topic and include a photo. When I have 1 I will share on FB. Happy New Year to you too.
