I’ve joined the black hole that is Instagram (psst, I’m @misplacedpen). There’s no denying it, social media is addictive, and I may be addicted. From the first few days of using it, my takeaways are that:
- I love how easy it is for me to see snapshots of what sustainable-fashion and zero-waste bloggers are doing to treat the earth better, and
- I hate how easy it is to lose two hours admiring what said bloggers are doing to treat the earth better. (Not to mention the time spent admiring new offers from sustainable brands. . .)
I’ve been uploading my own snapshots too, including my outfit from this past weekend:
This outfit was also my entry into Beacon’s Closet’s #beaconsturns20 giveaway! (Follow the link for details on how you can enter; the giveaway runs through the end of May and the basic requirements are that you have an item bought from Beacon’s and you have an Instagram account.) Beacon’s is a well-curated vintage & resale store (as I’ve probably mentioned many times before. . . . Can you tell I like them?), and they have an online shop! I spend way too much of my free time checking out their online offerings.
Anyways, if you’re curious what else I’m up to outside of this blog, find me (@misplacedpen) on Instagram and say hi! Maybe even follow me. 😉 I have a couple of detailed shots of my accessories up on there, and a nice photo of my roommate’s cat. Mreow.
I’ve also updated this blog with an Instagram button to the right that you can click on to be directly linked to my profile (if you open up any one of my blog pages or posts, you’ll see a right-hand sidebar full of things to click on). I’m currently extremely overwhelmed with work and life, so I haven’t had the time to figure out how to import the photos from my Instagram feed into this website. I’ll get to it soon, fingers crossed!
Outfit details: Fishnet top (from Buffalo Exchange), denim jacket (thrifted from Village Discount Outlet), silver sports bra (brand is US-made Beyond Yoga, but was bought at Beacon’s), seafoam green high-waisted shorts (made in the US), gold leather bag (from Beacon’s), fishnet tights, navy studded loafers, vintage doorknocker earrings (from Vintage Underground)
