Celebrities, They're Just Like Us! Rewear Edition

Posted by DIANA NGUYEN

Don’t you feel especially validated when you see celebrities doing something that would otherwise seem incredibly mainstream for us mere mortals? That’s how we feel about the rising trend of celebrities outfit repeating on the red carpet. The world of celebrity is progressively catching on to the rest of the world’s efforts towards sustainability and eco-friendly fashion. More and more we are seeing A-listers opting for sustainable choices when it comes to red carpet looks. Whether that be in the form of the old fashion faux pas “outfit repeating” or selecting pre-existing vintage looks–either way this is an overdue and welcomed evolution.

Let’s face it, we are all ready to get as far away from home as humanly possible! With COVID-19 restrictions lifting across the globe, two (or three) shots of the vaccine in our arms, and a savings account that screams, “I’ve been staying home for the past two years!”, the world is ready for travel again! And we’re not just talking about a weekend away in a charming town in our state, province, or surrounding area. We’re talking about jet setting to a warmer climate. Escaping to a destination unknown.

Posted by TESSA HALL

It’s no longer a surprise, or a trend, or a niche for corporate fashion brands to get on board with sustainability efforts. Many would argue it’s gone into hyperdrive, and honestly, we love to see it! Of course, these efforts come after years and years of experts shouting from the rooftops that we can no longer avoid climate change. It's already having it’s devastating and tangible impacts on many parts of the world. 

Although this is grim news, there are real positive strides being taken by the fashion industry, as they are the second most polluting industry in the world after oil.

At Lux Second Chance we strongly believe and champion authenticity. It is a core value of our company.

Posted by TESSA HALL

We refuse to use the words “strange,” “unprecedented,” or “uncertain” one more time in 2020! But when describing this year’s holiday shopping season, let’s just say it will be like none other before in the history of holiday shopping!
