Vintage But With a Purpose!

Avoiding fast fashion is a tricky one, especially if you don’t have a lot to spend. Everybody has to go to Penneys to buy socks at some point because that extra fiver they are saving will add to the food budget. But as consuming fast fashion becomes a lot less about budgeting and a lot more about indulgence and FOMO more it becomes a problem. A very fast problem.

Is now a trend to buy a huge amount of clothes only to try them out for social media then, just toss it. I’m not going into that but I do believe there is a much more creative version for this that benefits everybody. Foster It, Don’t Buy It! But with clothes! Right now about 70% of my wardrobe is either vintage or second hand. And I’m going for 85%! Most of the pieces I got are in great condition and are not pieces that I see other people on the street wearing, its mine. It is me! And if I’m ready to let go I just have to take back to the charity shop I got it from as long as it still in good condition.

Thrifting is a lot easier than it seems and a lot more fun too! I honestly hope Thrift shops become just as tech and marketing savvy as fast fashion. It is an easy way to find clothes you will love. But without contributing to the negative environmental impact, water pollution, toxic chemicals and the increasing levels of textile waste. I know it can be hard to think of that with so much going on around us. But we don’t have to be drastic, to cure it or abolish it. Fast fashion does not need to just stop and disappear. It just needs to slow down, and so do we. H&M
