Hearing the doorbell go and racing to collect our freshly ordered parcels like a kid on Christmas Day is one of the few joys we can gleam from the ongoing lockdown.
While a little retail therapy has helped us cope throughout the some of the more difficult times these last 12 months, we've also got to thinking about how to make the clothes we were a little more sustainable.
So, step forward Nasty Gal, who have launched their vintage range for us to shop with the environment in mind.
The online retailer has curated a stellar selection of some of their vintage treasures as well as a range of organic denim pieces for us to be stylish and sustainable - particularly as we start venturing outside as lockdown restrictions start to ease.
The Nasty Gal vintage range is described on its website to have been "reimagined, reinterpreted, and remade" so each garment is both totally chic and unique.
The organic denim jeans are all produced through natural processes which support the wellbeing of the ecosystem, while the vintage tops and dresses are all sustainably sourced and re-purposed from materials from eras gone by.
The brand explains: "These v rad pieces of vintage clothing are made to be cherished; taking pride of place in your closet with each passing season.
"Plus, everything is sourced from sustainable fabric, meaning you can help save the environment and look damn good at the same time."
So whenever anyone asked you where you got your new statement jacket from, you can say: "This old thing? It's vintage."
We can't wait to venture out in our upcycled garms...
Cheaper, second-hand clothing has become increasingly more popular in the last year. Shopping app Depop, which sees users flog their second-hand clothes to new buyers, saw a huge rise in users in 2020.
Having just shy of one million regular users in March last year, its popularity soared as people cleared out their wardrobes during lockdown - seeing 2.5 million active users by July that year.
It's good to see we're all doing our bit to shop sustainably.
