No one knows that one woman’s trash can be another woman’s treasure better than you.
You took a lot of teasing for stockpiling all the table scraps after Thanksgiving. But your fam sure ate their words when you whipped up delicious Turkey Crepes with Cranberry Sour Cream made entirely from leftovers.
You’re the designated packrat at work for squirreling away all those busted computer parts. But you got the last laugh at Christmas when you unveiled your keyboard wreath and mouse snowman bedecked cubicle.
Even the latest addition to your wardrobe—a pair of snazzy straight-leg jeans from the newly launched R.E.U.S.E denim line, is made almost entirely of recycled materials.
In fact, 80 percent of every item in the line, which hit Hawaii’s shelves just last week, is constructed from reconstituted cotton—scraps collected from the floors of garment manufacturers. Only recycled water and eco-friendly dyes are used in their production, which makes for a smaller carbon footprint for each pair of jeans.
What’s definitely not recycled are the line’s fresh styles. R.E.U.S.E.’s ultra-flattering skinny, boot, and straight-leg cuts come in a variety of trendy washes paired with even cooler pocket and distressing details, like the bleached-out light wash reBORN skinnies with crystal accents and the dark wash reVIVED bootcut with whiskering and rope embroidered flap pockets. They're all low or ultra-low rise but sit snugly at your hips to eliminate any butt cleavage.
The mix also includes a handful of equally chic short shorts, Bermudas, and mini skirts, all replete with the same edgy design elements.
Best of all, every last piece is priced under $100.
So you can add to your pile of treasure, while still saving a little gold.
In Hawaii, R.E.U.S.E. is currently available exclusively at Flower Child, 41 Kihapai St., Kailua, 808.263.0288. View the full range of styles online here.
