I've fallen in love . . . with a vintage 1950's gold handbag that I managed to find for just £10!
I can't quite believe it. Of course its purpose isn't for holding my nick nacks, no no no. . . it's there to be admired, not used!
I do believe, we as a fashion nation, have grown to lose value in our garments. With the rise of fast fashion, we discard as quickly as we buy. From now on, I want to invest in items I can adore and treasure for a long time. After all, my passion for clothes should be something I choose to engage with positively, otherwise I'll lose out spiritually and emotionally with the act and I'll never be completely satisfied in what I buy and the amount I buy.
What are your opinions on this subject and how do you engage with the act of consuming clothes?
Thanks for reading!
