45 WAYS TO STYLE A PLASTIC YELLOW BAG
Hello readers and fellow bloggers! How are you doing? Today I will show you forty- five ways to style a plastic yellow bag. I told you I wear this bag often enough for it to be considered a sustainable piece in my wardrobe. However, telling is one thing and showing it is another. So, this evening I have spent more than 2 hours behind the screen of my laptop, going through old outfits published on my blog. Guess what? I managed to find 45 outfits with this yellow bag. I'm sure I could find a few more if I continued looking but I think three hours is more than enough time spent putting together a post, don't you? Not that I consider it lost time. Going through my old posts, I revived a lot of memories. Isn't it amazing that I have been blogging since 2012? That's almost a decade of continuous posting. I've had this yellow bag since 2014 so that's quite some time. I'm not sure what is the real number of times I have worn it because I don't document all of my outfits. I can imagine the real number is quite high, if there are more than 45 outfits on my blog. In retrospective, this bag was definitely a successful purchase. It was an affordable piece as well. I have a feeling I will wear it for years to come.
If you remember, I talked about this plastic bag in my last post and why I consider it a sustainable piece. Some people see plastic items as not being sustainable in the context of fashion, but I beg to differ. I think that any item can be sustainable if we wear it a lot. For me sustainability is about shopping one's closet and getting the maximum out of every purchased item. My version of sustainability is all about not being wasteful and appreciating the items I already own. I'm not saying it is the only way to do sustainable fashion. There are many ways to be more ecologically conscious when it comes to clothes, shopping one's closet is just one of them. I'm sure you all know and understand why shopping vintage clothes makes sense in context of sustainable fashion as well as supporting sustainable brands. However, even if you buy something that is not second hand, vintage or produced in a sustainable way, you can still make that item sustainable by wearing it a lot. Some say that 30 wears for item is a number we should strive for. I think it's a good number in general, but I also understand that not all items in our closets are likely to be worn 30 times. There are some exceptions, such as dresses for special occasions that might be worn only a handful of time. Bags are definitely something we shouldn't have issues wearing more than 30 times. Scroll down to see how I styled this yellow bag in 45 ways!
