Ana Ortiz is the latest mother-to-be to join the parenthood ranks on the ‘Ugly Betty’ set. Co-star Rebecca Romijn joked that if Ortiz’ bun in the oven is a girl, she’ll have a ton of hand-me-downs courtesy of her coworkers.
Here at Trend Hunter, we say that Ana Ortiz’s baby-to-be isn’t limited only to hand-me-downs. There are a number of recycled and secondhand fashions that have been given new life through the reinventions of savvy designers. In the slideshow below, you’ll find fierce recycled clothing for every stage of life, from BeeBee reworked rockstar onesies to couture designs made from old prison shirts.
Whether Ana Ortiz outfits her baby with hand-me-downs from her ‘Ugly Betty’ costars or with recycled fashions from this slideshow, we have secondhand fashion covered.
