My name is Norma, I am a small town girl with very little fashion sense which is why I decided to start reselling fashion… welcome! Come see what I do and WHY I do it!
I am a pastor’s wife, a mom to three adorable littles, and we all live in the beautiful state of Vermont. I love to be active and take my kids to activities, some days I prefer to sit at home and watch the bird feeder action. My days are full of diapers and I more often than not can be found wearing sweat pants or yoga pants, so I am highly unqualified for a fashion blog (just so ya know). But, nonetheless here we are.
I wasn’t joking about the fashion sense,I always think that maybe if I didn’t have young kids who wipe their noses on me, spill stuff on me, spit up on me, etc. that MAYBE I’d dress up more…
but honestly I never was one to consistently try to put together cute outfits and dress nice. I wore makeup sporadically and poorly until I got married when I decided I’m not meant for makeup. Like seriously,
So…why the fashion blog?
Well, I wear clothes! And I am a clothing reseller (hence the name ResellerStyler). I’m learning about sustainability and I’m learning about fashion and I have enjoyed the process and wanted to share what I’m learning as well fashion-related stories from my past, and maybe share some sustainability ideas as well.
Focusing on reducing waste
The used clothing market is booming. And that’s a huge plus for those of us who are resellers (like me!) but it is also a huge plus for the earth! Clothing production requires a LOT of water and if we each commit to buying used clothing at least in part, we’ll not only reduce water waste, but we’ll save those items from hitting the landfill long before they are past their glory days.
Clothing can be worn a long time if we buy quality made pieces (not fast fashion), and if we take good care of our clothes. Plenty of people donate their excellent condition clothes to places like Goodwill, Salvation Army, or other thrift stores, and you and I can benefit from their waste.
Join the movement
Plenty of people are giving up great clothes, so shop around! Whether online or in store the options for shopping used are basically endless. Here are some sites to get you started learning about buying used!
