Today continues the weekly series, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless, Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.
Last week I dove into the word Flood.
Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:
As in, fashionable finds.
Today I met a totally amazing woman, who is keeping thousands in fashion.
She’s not a stylists or a designer, but don’t be mistaken, she is a fashion diva!
Shannon Wilburn has created a movement of recycling by reselling children’s and maternity clothes and accessories through consignment sales events with her business called Just Between Friends.
Here’s a pic of Shannon and I at Tory Johnson’s Spark & Hustle Tour today in Orlando, Florida.
Here’s what I love about what Shannon created:
- she created a heart-led business with a mission
- she is recycling for the planet
- she is helping other women own “big” small businesses
And, what I also adore, is the fact that she is giving good clothes another chance, for a good cause. Don’t we all need second chances along the road of life?
After I met Shannon I began thinking of my own outfit I wore today.
There I was standing in a half-used outfit.
My white cropped pants ~ from a friend’s pile of clothes headed to the thrift store
My open toed tan shoes ~ from Justin’s Mom as a hand-me down
In fact, ever since I started this little promise not to shop, not to buy frivolous item, not to purchase new shoes, I seem to have stumbled upon a gold mine of fashion finds.
It’s as if the clothes and shoes keep finding me.
Even more so, it is as if the universe is rewarding me in my own brand of “currency” ~ like, said “universe” is looking down and honoring my journey to take care of my head, heart, body & soul by sending me little gifts along the way.
Well, it’s working.
I haven’t missed a day yet…
And I feel committed, excited, and focused.
And, meeting the fabulous Shannon today reminded me of something I feel very strongly about: I believe clothes live on.
It’s why some people save their grandmother’s wedding dress.
It’s why some go gaga over vintage style.
And, it’s why I have a collection of Cindie’s clothes.
Friends and Fashion.
Two pretty powerful F words if you ask me.
And just between us friends…
I think Shannon has proven that good finds are always in fashion.
