Momo Wang’s Third-Hand UpCycle Collection is a brilliantly colorful example of what can be achieved with reusing found materials in fashion. Inspired by the “third hand” idea of French philosopher Derrida, Wang told Texprint of the 12-piece collection, “They were all made in my hometown Jinzhou in China. I bought all the clothes and materials from local second-hand markets there. The market is very cool.”
Wang finds upcycling to be a creative challenge: “The basic idea is to do what I can to refresh, renew, re-animate precious second-hand materials, and eventually deliver the beauty in them by my realization, and eventually have more and more people doing the same, or at least thinking similarly,” she says.
This is a really cool gift for those going green or “GREEN” veterans. First of all it is really easy, cheap and fun!!
I totally have a bag full of wonderful material that is going to WOW my list of Holiday Eco-friendly people.

DIY Recycled Oxford Shirt Napkin Tutorial from Green Home Guide here. At my thrift stores the more brightly colored ones are always available. *Tip: When I give homemade gifts like flannel shoe bags, food, soaps etc… I always give more than one (or in the case of food a large tin/jar full) and give them in sets so the gift doesn’t look sad and stingy. I’d give a set of at least 6 napkins, probably 8-12.
DIY Cheap and Easy Earl Grey Tea London Fog Bath Soak Recipe from Salt Tree here. This could be made up in large batches and packaged in a thrifted teacups with the ingredients listed on a tag.
Saving money…is hard. I am sick of being a slave to fashion.
Fashion is expensive. So I am on the hunt to make fashion affordable. Here is my first official start of Fall fashion.
These “before” and “after” fashion restyles are my taste ..might not be yours but hopefully it will inspire you to save some cash towards important purchases and to rethink fashion. Get thriftin gals!
