Welcome to the final installment of Curated Thrifted Dressember, where we look at the ethical and environmental way to thrift a variety of dresses. Previously, I have curated the following collections for your winter wardrobe: Vintage Black Tunics, Vintage Sweater Dresses, and Vintage Velvet Dresses. We are rounding out the series today with a holiday that calls for the sparkly, the shiny, and the glitzy dresses to ring in a brand new year.
Whether going out or staying in with friends, you may be seeking a little glamour to go with your champagne countdown. Instead of seeking fast, quickly made fashion, I urge you to seek out your local thrift stores to repurpose the styles from previous decades. Whether you love the 1950s silhouettes or prefer the 1980s over-the-top sequins, there is something for everyone. You can find the classic NYE colors of gold, silver, and black, but you will also find pops of color, such as the fabulous pink dress included below. NYE dresses are fun and really, a thrifted option is not only fashionable, but environmental (repurposing, recycling) and ethical (it's a guarantee your money is not going toward companies who use unethical practices in the making of their clothes).
I hope you enjoy the curated collection below and are inspired to go the thrifted / vintage route for your festive plans this NYE. I also hope you will keep this series in mind in all your future clothes purchases. Plus, check out the curated series of ethical and fair trade companies for my Dressember 2015 campaign, because knowing where your clothes are made makes a difference.
