Feeling creative, ambitious and disciplined? Take the Wardrobe Refashion pledge for a minimum of two months. Wardrobe Refashion is a recurring virtual club of people dedicated to reusing and refashioning instead of buying new garments, founded and hosted by the effervescent Nikki, Head Refashionista, on her blog.
The next round begins in July, and you can sign up after June 15, where you can also read the pledge and rules. If the idea of not buying anything new fills you with anxiety, note that Wardrobe Refashion does allow you to buy handmade clothing and grants you one Get Out of Refashionista Jail Free Card for every two-month period.
Nikki also asks that you post on the Wardrobe Refashion blog once a week to update the group on your progress. The project is definitely in fun, but also serious about using what you have and what you can creatively source before buying new. In a world where we’ve given up so much self-sufficiency, this will test you and strengthen your sustainability muscles, and you’ll find a virtual group of like-minded friends to inspire and support you.
