I’ve been shopping my archives for years now. Bin upon bin, stored in the cellar of my co-op building, contain the remnants of my previous fashion life, arranged by season, arranged by category. Heavy coats in one. Pants in another. Vintage furs carefully and loosely folded in a couple. Some house thrift store finds, others sample sale scores. There are those with my 14th Street dollar store “steals” that I just can’t part with…and high-heeled shoes, boots and sandals ~ stilettos I can no longer walk in stacked in several.
A relatively recent recessionista necessity, “shop your closet” has become many a fashionista’s seasonal mantra. But now, surprisingly, according to an article by Stephanie Clifford in today’s New York Times, even apparel companies are shopping the archives.
Just found it interesting. That’s all.
