Kyleigh Kühn lives out the dictum “think globally, act locally” with the launch of her new ecologically conscious initiative called 87 Days of Vintage. During a period of roughly three months Kyleigh has vowed to eschew buying any newly produced clothing. Instead, Kyleigh will express her style using only clothing already in her closet or that which can be purchased from vintage and thrift stores. Kyleigh cites as inspiration an Earth Day column by Maya Singer that ran on Style.com that details the ecological price exacted by the global fashion supply chain. After breaking that chain, even if only for three months, argues Kyleigh, “we’ll know exactly what pieces we might need to add, and flex our quality over quantity powers to build a more carefully curated wardrobe.” This is no mean feat for even the most frugal amongst us, but for a public figure such as Kyleigh it is massively impressive.
