GETTING MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK AND HOW WILLFULLY IGNORANT CONSUMERS ARE THE WORST
I can't believe it's nearly the end of January! This year seems to be whizzing by way too fast, or is it just me? I've been chomping at the bit to go for an op-shopping session, but alas, time has alluded me as usual (Amanda too). As our minds are on fashion and shopping we have been reading a lot in that area at the moment. Here is what caught our eye this week.
A crisp white shirt is a classic wardrobe staple. I own two - one organic cotton that Amanda bought for me in Italy which is a fitted style and the other an oversized mens Armani shirt that I scored second hand for $20 (one of my fav op-shop finds!). Now I love versatile clothing but what I love better is being able to wear one item multiple ways. This DIY fashion post by A Pair and a Spare is a cracker. I'm keen to try out the reverse shirt style.
Yikes! This study confirms that people are in fact, the worst. A fascinating look at the psychology behind fashion consumer choices ethical vs. non-ethical and those that remain willfully ignorant to problems in the fashion industry.
In the second part of my fabric blog post series I wrote about the super cosy and fabulous wool. There are still some issues in the industry but that is changing with pressure from animal rights groups and the Responsible Wool Standards organisation. Have a read why doncha.
And lastly, did you see Amanda's super rad 90's vintage Levi denim jacket she scored over on our instagram? I want it. I may have to borrow it. I'm so happy 90's fashion is making a come back.
