I Broke the Fast Fashion Rule
I broke my own "no fast fashion" rule recently, without even thinking about it.
I wore uncomfortable shoes while PMSing. My feet were swollen and I still had a few errands to run, so I picked up these loafers while shopping for toiletries in Target. I never even considered the fast fashion rule. That's pretty bad. That just buying shoes because the pair I'm wearing is uncomfortable is such a quick, thoughtless process is terrible. These shoes are cute, sure, and they were a relief to put on, but they're not going to last very long.
I only even realized what I'd done three days after the fact. Fast fashion is so ingrained in our minds, that it can act as a reflex.
This was in January, and I've not broken the rule since. I've got my mind set on a few pieces, but my budget is stunted at the moment. I'm thinking about trying to find some quality second hand pieces. I think that falls in line with avoiding fast fashion, wouldn't you say?
Where do you stand on the whole "fast fashion" debacle?
