Trendy items for cheap prices? Yes, please! If this describes your relationship with fashion, you probably fall in the ‘infatuated’ category. Trendiness and affordability are most important to you and if you only wear a piece once, you don’t really mind. It was cheap, right? Okay, we get you. We like cute pieces too, but how sustainable is this relationship? Who’s paying the price for that item if you’re not?
Our relationship tip: We challenge you to wear your ‘fast fashion’ items as long as possible! Hold on to them. If you buy something on impulse that you’ll never wear again, why not try passing it on to a friend? These items might seem disposable to you with those cheap price tags, but consider that they’ve gone on a long journey before they hit store shelves, passing through the hands of cotton farmers, spinners, weavers, dyers, sewers and others. Respect your garments! Why not try prolonging their life? When it breaks, get it repaired! You’ll save money and might even get to build a meaningful relationship with your wardrobe.
