Give forward by bringing back

I think I have found a solution to my problem of disposing old clothes and old school uniforms that have been bugging me for a long time.

My son gave me this pamphlet from a popular shopping retail company. The pamphlet said the store accepts old clothes in whatever form they may be. The goal is to:

REWEAR (clothes that can be worn again);

REUSE (textiles that are no longer suitable to wear are converted into other products, such as cleaning cloths);

RECYCLE (textiles that can’t be reused get a new chances as textile fibres, or are used to manufacture products such as damping and insulation materials fro the auto industry.

The company’s collecting initiatives aims to lessen the clothes and textiles that end up in landfills when 95 percent could be used again.

“The H&M garment collecting initiative has been created to decrease the waste and close the fashion loop. So if you’ve got something worn, torn, or hopelessly out of style – don’t throw it away or let it pile up in the back of our wardrobe. Bring back all your unwanted clothes and home textiles to your local H&M store.”

As a token for the effort in bringing your old clothes to the store, they will be giving voucher (for each bag you hand in) with a discount for your next purchase. Please visit their website hm.com/garment-collecting ico-spirit.com to know more about this initiative.

I’ll be sorting more old clothes this week to free additional space in the cabinet and do my share in reducing waste from old clothes and textiles.

Our outfit for our relative’s wedding

This is the gown I wore on our niece’s wedding day. Look at my lovely daughter’s gown. Isn’t she lovely in her peach long gown? Our outfits were accentuated by crystal brooch (for me) and gold necklace for her. Both gowns and accessories were provided by the bride.

 

The gown, by the way, is called infinity dress and made of spandex-y fabric. You can easily style it in which way you want. We got our style from a YouTube tutorial. I chose the style for myself to cover my big arms. 😀

Oh pardon the blurry picture. This was taken by hubby outside the Immaculate Conception Cathedral of Cubao where the wedding ceremony took place.

Principal Sponsor’s gown

As written in the image, the Principal Sponsor (Ninang) will be wearing a lilac-colored long gown.

A, the lovely bride, provided our long gowns. N took a picture of me wearing the convertible or infinity dress. I choose this style to at least cover my fatty arms. I will be wearing a corset or something like it to hide the bulges and make the gown looks better on me.  🙂
