I have become such a fan of vintage clothing and shopping second hand since beginning my ethical/sustainable journey. Vintage clothing is a stylish way of recycling pre-loved pieces which would unfortunately be otherwise thrown into landfill sites. Poor-boy is a vintage label that is based locally to me within Hull UK, so I’ve known about the vintage line that the brand offers for a while. However, it wasn’t until recently that I noticed they also create an upcycled line of garments made from unwanted clothing that are remastered into unique pieces more on-trend. It’s no secret that not all second hand clothing is appealing and stylish so upcycling is the ultimate environmentally friendly way of shopping.
The denim dress featured below is a piece from the upcycled range. It is made from high quality denim that is structured and the pinafore straps are held together with adjustable buckles. I love how unique and versatile this item is. From the vintage collection (featured below) is another unique piece. The embroidered shirt holds just the right amount of trend with the embroidered collar and sleeve cuffs, as well as the timeless shirt silhouette.
