In the beginning, there was the scarf. A gorgeous vintage scarf. And now it has become these amazing shoes.
Purchased at Te Casan in NYC (RIP), the broadway-dancer-wannabe-turned-sales-associate only had to utter the words “one of a kind” and I was sold.
Of course, it didn’t hurt that the proceeds from the scarf benefitted Oxfam, and that the line was designed specifically for Te Casan.
They’ve brought me so much joy, and inspired my new found love of rededicated pieces such as these:
A leather converted lawn chair by Front;
a recycled gold and conflict-free diamond ring;
a ceiling-to-floor chandelier of recycled pop bottles.
Reduce? I would rather not. But reuse and recycle is looking better all the time.
