Whether ruffled blouses are in this season or not’s a debate for the fashion magazines. What I do know is that the upcycled blouses in Urban Outfitters’ Urban Renewal section always look cute!
As with all Urban Renewal fashions, these blouses are refashioned in the U.S. from vintage fabrics. That means each piece is unique — so what you end up getting could be slightly different from what’s shown in the webstore — though the silhouette will be the same. The Plaid Ruffled Blouse on the left is on sale for $39.99; the Oxford Ruffled Blouse costs $58.
Upcycled fashionistas in Los Angeles can get local as well as eco while shopping Urban Renewal pieces. Urban Outfitters gets some of its fashions from SuperLuckyCat, an upcycled clothing company founded by Michael Baffico and Crystal Butler in downtown L.A. Blogdowntown recently profiled the duo, who revealed the process they go through to create their one-of-a-kind pieces — from getting 100-pound bales of pre-loved clothes from the Midwest to mass producing one-of-a-kindness.
