  • Crystal Rey, You Are An Outfit Repeater.

     Lizzie Mcguire you are an outfit repeater. popsikle shop Miranda Sanchez. Kate Sanders Hilary Duff

    Kate Sanders, you are officially irrelevant. The Lizzie McGuire Movie came out in 2003, I was a 13-year-old girl obsessed with everything Hilary Duff, Disney & Pop Culture. How I remember Y2K being was, it was the decade of learning superficiality. If we all weren’t watching Paris Hilton, we were refreshing PerezHilton.com for the next stream of gossip. But hey, it wasn’t all bad. Y2K was the start of Social Media (thank God for Tom & his MySpace). We all learned how to selfie, had top 8’s & Marketing to the younger generation took on a whole new meaning with the internet.

    In the early 2000s, fast fashion was reaching a whole new high. Consumerism was something we all did and didn’t care to think of the long-lasting effects of what we consume. As that decade rolled out we rolled into the most harmful fast-fashion decade of our History.

    “While people bought 60% more garments in 2014 than in 2000, they only kept the clothes for half as long.” - McKinsey & Company, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

    For 10+ years we learned to grow a habit of consuming and tossing. Through this consumer habit, Big Business learned how to cheapen their clothing products, manipulate/abuse human labor & filled our air with toxins we all now breathe. Being aware of this I started Popsikle Shop in 2012 after attending 2 years at FIDM, I learned that the only consistent thing about the Fashion Industry is that they were creating their own demise with the direction they continued to walk in.

    It’s 2021 and I’m here to tell you all, “My name is Crystal Rey and I am the Queen of Outfit Repeating.” To prove this to you, I will show you how to style one Mustard Turtleneck & one pair of Vegan Doc Martens in multiple ways. I hope this inspires you to challenge your style and what you can do with it!

      What i do to reduce my textile waste is trying not to buy from fast fashion brands, borrowing or looking for things second hand, and wearing clothes for as long as possible before donating them or handing them down.

      Hi I’m Ladypotter12 on instagram, to reduce my textile waste, if an item of clothing that I have has tears or holes in it instead of throwing them away I use them as fabric scraps for sewing, or using as filling for stuffed animals that I make. Also I donate clothes that I outgrow, or don’t want anymore to people in need.🙂

      To decrease my textile waist I started by educating myself and others on the effects of the fashion industry, especially after watching influencers that thrift and do their part. I started trying to solely buy second hand and get hand-me-downs when possible. I also try to shop from small businesses. I’m still learning more every day!
