I will always remember a piece I read a few years ago about a woman who loved a particular white oxford designer shirt. She would pay a premium price of $400.00 for this shirt. Once she wore it, she would discard it and buy a new one. She claimed that it was never the same after it was washed or dry-cleaned. Seems to me there could be a better way to drop $400.00....... but to each his own, I guess.
One of my weekly features will showcase some of our second-hand finds modeled by my daughters. It's a win-win situation for all....they get super cute clothes, I save some money, and we are helping in various ways by re-using a great piece of clothing.
