Pippa and I, along with representatives from Goodwill Industries of Houston, showed up to the KTRK Channel 13 studios for an Earth Day recycling drive with an entourage of models in tow.  Our goal was to show Houston folks how they can dress fashionably on a serious budget, all while helping the planet by keeping clothing out of landfills.

We put together some fabulous outfits for the segment. Brands that we used include Anthropologie, J. Crew, Lacoste, Abercrombie and Fitch, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic, just to name a few. A neat fact is that the cost at Goodwill for every single one of our outfits came in at 10% or LESS than the retail price! Take a look at the pic, these aren’t outdated pieces we used either!

We’d like to give a shout out to our lovely models and than them for volunteering their time to helping us, along with Goodwill get the word out to Houstonians about the benefits of shopping thrift. Thanks Victoria, Taylor, Cameron, Hailey and Abbey, you guys rocked!!

Remember to Always Donate and Pay it Forward!

Jen and Pippa are virtual volunteers working to promote non-profit thrift stores in the Houston area.
