I've come to the realisation that most of what I donated today is probably less than a few years old, some of which I have owned for less than six months and only worn a handful of times. When I say old, what I really mean, is six months old to me, because the reality is, everything I buy is now secondhand, so the true age of each garment is unknown.

This did strike a chord though, because that's a really short turnover for owning clothes. I wonder if the same time-frame would apply when buying new from retail stores - the answer would probably lie with the quality, and therefore brand of the particular garment.
Funnily enough, one of the skirts I gave away today, went back to the same Salvos store that I bought it from to start with. I do love this little denim skirt, embellished with ribbons, which although is part of the design, would be an easy DIY to do with any denim skirt. The skirt doesn't fit, it used to, but after having two children, I'm kidding myself. I do hope it finds a nice a home in someone else's wardrobe again.

Readers, what would you say is the turnover of secondhand clothes in your wardrobe? If you are an avid recycled shopper, do you notice clothes in your wardrobe come and go at a rapid rate? I'd love to know.
