The Sustainable shop
One of the best ways to buy less stuff is to buy fewer, but higher quality items, and to keep them in good repair.
Clothes have a lot of potential problems. Popped buttons, fallen hems, running tights, holes, stains, and scuffs. The list goes on and on. Fortunately, this graphic will show you how to fix the most common clothing mishaps.
Clothing Repair Made Easy
Damaged clothes can be a real nuisance, particularly when it is an outfit that you really enjoy and appreciate. The good news is that you do not have to throw away a favorite item of clothing because of minor damage or have to pay out a lot of money for repairs.
A stuck zipper, for example, can be caused by something as trivial as friction or some kind of blockage on the teeth of the zipper. One good tip is to draw a #2 pencil over the teeth; the use pencils contain natural grease within the graphite that can get the zipper moving again. Candle wax, lip balm, and petroleum jelly can also be used for the same purpose.
If your zipper pull has broken off, you can easily replace it by using a keychain. Use pliers to pull off anything attached to the keychain and then use the open ring to attach it to the zipper.
A button falling off of a shirt is not the end of the world, or of the shirt! Most shirts have a spare button sewn in, if not then replace it with a button from your sleeve which is less noticeable and use a closely matching button on your sleeve instead.
Just a little effort can easily fix the minor damage and save some of your favorite items of clothing. For more major repairs or alterations, leave it in the hands of the professionals rather than risk making the damage worse.
Independence day- yet another year to feel happy in unison...! This year too we have infinite reasons to be happy and proud, like really! In between all the political and social news, We are super duper happy with India's performance at the Global stage.
Happy Independence Day, everyone! Wearing the tricolor is a yearly affair that every office, school, and parade put on to honor this very important day. What did it mean to us? While for some it was about bringing out their ethnic stash, for others it was about the freedom to dress the way they want; free from the moral police! Take a cue from our trendy-office peeps, and up your patriotic style.
While the best way to showcase these pride-worthy colors is to go all out desi, the neo-Indian could wear it with a show of modern aesthetics. You could play around with your colors by mixing and matching your pieces to create a colour-blocked look. Palazzos with blouses, a bodycon dress, a sporty tee with jeans- you literally have endless combinations that’ll help you brave your sartorial style.
When it came to men, If mundu-style isn’t for you, there’s always the humble kurta (preferably khadi) and a Nehru collar jacket (just avoid trying to look like a Neta!). Or follow in line with the rest of the men, who showed off a check and stripe parade in the flag’s colors. And in case you’re playing it casually, the polo T-shirt with its bold stripes can always make-do.
Money is tight for us right now so paying full price for items isn’t an option. Let’s be honest, even if we had the money, I can’t bear to spend a lot on everyday clothing. A few special occasion pieces now and then, of course. But for the “everyday uniform” type clothing, I’d rather put that money elsewhere.
The untried shop is an online shop of used clothes and new surplus high street brands. If you worried about trying to use, don’t worry, this is no frugality shop. Untried is super picky about what it accepts.
Now, here’s some advice for making the untried shop work for you:
Have an idea of what you want.
The site has thousands of unique items. It can be overwhelming to browse through them. So you need to have some basic idea of what you’re looking for to narrow down the search. It helps to know some brands that have worked well for you in the past and narrow it down to those. The more modifiers you can use the better. Search for your specific size, desired color, and cut.
Order more than you want.
If you ordered a few items, you might be more likely to keep the pieces you don’t love & no disappointed if most items go back. A good guideline is to return half of what you order. At least until you become more comfortable with choosing sizes and styles that will work for you.
Have pragmatic expectations.
When we spend an entire day at the mall trying on clothes, Often we go home empty handed too. You spent very little time compared to choosing clothes and trying them on. So you won't feel as frustrated as you would have had spent an unproductive day of shopping at the mall.
Research your sizing.
We propose you stick with familiar brands – you can check things as of now in your Wardrobe for sizing. (In spite of the fact that with the free shipping and full refund, don't be reluctant to experiment with some new brands, maybe ones you've generally appreciated.)
We trust everybody need to have helpful and moderate access to the brands and styles. You can locate the same products which you'd find in retail locations yet at up to 85% off.
