That Place in Medina | Sustainable Reclaimed Fashion

The recently opened quirky boutique That Place in Medina  offers high quality upcycled fashion. I spotted retro, vintage, designer labels and pieces with personality that deserve to be re matched with a new owner. The size 16 plus โ€˜Moreโ€™ section got my tick of approval! I tried on many pieces that were very modern and great preloved condition.

 

I rarely buy reclaimed fashion because I find it time consuming to find decent items  however all the hard work has been done for me here, making it a successful & fun visit! ๐Ÿ›
I loved the experience of shopping sustainable & I noticed a change in my clothes hunting behaviors.

NEVER would I have gone into a shopping centre and bought this orange H&M dress! 
In That Place I gave myself permission to search for things that appealed to me & would express my personality.  I loved the fabric & neckline of this $19 dress & although I am not usually drawn to orange I tried it on & it was meant to be ๐Ÿ˜
The hunt for the treasures in the quirky boutique was a different type of shopping enjoyment. It was a chance to think creatively & be more in control of shopping for my individual style

Once again I would have walked straight past this number. Its khaki, it’s sheer yet it happened to be right for me! Priced at $22 it offers fabulous value. I love how it looks worn with my mid length shorts and since it gives extra coverage I will likely wear them more frequently this summer. I tend to wear longer bottom options and show less leg but feel I was meant to discover this shirt!

My small collection of Cue & Veronika Maine clothes survive my wardrobe cull year after year. I value their luxurious fabrics and manufacture ๐Ÿ’• Back in the days I could justify the investment but since money isnโ€™t as abundant these days and I havenโ€™t added to my collection in years … until last week when I saw this floral print Veronika Maine blazer* in the racks at @thatplaceinmedina at an affordable $45 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

It has character, is high quality & since the size was right it felt like It was meant to be mine! โ€ข
The green Palomino ring handle bag adds a pop of colour ๐Ÿ’š It was $22 & appeared unused as the shoulder straps were still packaged up inside. A perfect finishing touch to achieve a high fashion look on a budget ๐Ÿ’ธ

This navy Dancing Leopard slip dress was as new with a tag and was ticketed as $49. I love the slits and the relaxed look to this piece. I spotted a $9 long chain necklace that was the perfect finishing touch for the feel of the outfit I imagined. This dress will be well worn on the warm days ahead. Its rather interesting that because it was in my size I didn’t hesitate to try it on. If I had spotted it in a retailer I doubt I would have given it much notice. I would have thought it wasn’t for me due the the lack of a defined waist line. Trying it on paid off because I feel very comfortable in it and I love how I feel in it. Get creative and try things on that appeal to you and you might be surprised.
