One of the few things I bought since starting on this journey (along with eco socks and underwear and organic cotton leggings and dress (from my first post)) was a pair of black flats which I eventually bought last year after 6 months of searching in charity shops and on adverts (of course the next week I found a brand new pair (since worn out) in a charity shop).
I justified the purchase from TKMaxx because the premise of the shop is you get high quality stuff that may be from previous seasons, an idea I am not quite sold on, and as it turned out neither was I sold on the shoes.
There was so odd detailing on the front of them, which I was never comfortable with, so I rarely wore them, but kept them out of the guilt I previously posted about. Finally ready to part with them, I was giving them a last long look before letting them go last week, when I discovered I could cut off the superfluous piece of fabric, and now I have a pair of shoes I am much happier with!
It just shows you that you can turn something you down like, into the perfect fit for your wardrobe with only a small change. Not only will you be sorting out a whole in your wardrobe needs, but also removing the guilt of sending something one step closer to landfill.
