Created by: artr

Pronunciation: rēˈsīk-ˈklōði ng

Sentence: Jenny was so proud of her recyclothing. She had carefully packed away some of the stuff her mother had wanted to give to charity because it was so out of date. Now the style was hip again and she had a new wardrobe that cost her nothing. What she didn't count on was that this new version featured a whole different color scheme and fabric choices. She also found that thirty-year-old food stains that seemed minor when she squirreled them away were now beacons of cheap.

Etymology: recycle (convert (waste) into reusable material) + clothing (clothes collectively)
