Wear It Out


One of my biggest loves in life is fashion. At the same time, one of the things that bugs me the most is mass consumerism. Wear It Out has married the two in a way that makes me very happy. It's all about up-cycling.



No longer have all those pieces to the puzzle? No worries. Wear It Out has figured out how to re-purpose those that remain into clever badges. Aren't those puppy pins awesome? 


Whatever games lose their pieces, they can find a new path in life with Wear It Out. Check out those cuff links above.

I thought these were some really creative ways to reuse those things that we so often take for granted and trash. They're also lovely gift idea's just in time for Christmas. Even better, you feel good about your purchases!

What do you guys think? Are you as excited about these lovely pieces as I am?

  4. I know how you feel! Even before I banned myself from shopping, I used to always pick pieces that don't really look like anyone else would wear them or were too popular in trend, etc. Now that I'm almost done with my challenge, I'm really convinced that upcycled items or thrifting is much more my style now than anything. These are really LOVELY pieces! My favorite are those bird necklaces! I'm also trying to upcycle stuff to make into accessories for my shop!

  8. I totally applaud companies like this as I try to shop as ethically as I can. These are such quirky and inspiring pieces too: fun as well as stylish - and that's always a great combination.
    I have only just got around to replying to your lovely, supportive comment on my scoliosis post. I'm sorry to hear that your daughter's scoliosis has stopped her gymnastic endeavours and I do hope for her (and your) sake that whatever her curvature is at the moment, it stays as it is and doesn't progress any further.

  12. I think that is so clever - great way to make something (adorable) out of something that would otherwise be tossed.

  13. That's a great idea. I'm doing a clothing swap with some other bloggers tomorrow, so it's like shopping for 'new' things without actually buying anything. I love the idea of repurposing old things like this- so creative.
