Fashion Revolution Week is still going strong and will culminate in Edmonton on Saturday April 23rd in the fantastic event, Change of Clothes! I can’t wait! I am literally so excited I can’t sleep! So naturally, I’m blogging (and maybe having some wine). I’ve been in beautiful Banff, Alberta, all week attending a work conference. The setting was really hard to take…
I was surrounded by incredibly smart people – and we OTs are an attractive bunch! But I couldn’t help but wonder how much fast fashion was going on. As for me, I wore ZERO fast fashion, obv. In fact, I wore the same dress all week to prove a point, obv. The ultimate weapon against fast fashion is buying less, and if you’re going to buy less that means you’re going to have to buy pieces you really love that you can wear over and over. So I wore my denim sheath dress, thrifted ages ago for $11 and worn more times than I can count since then. Here’s how I styled it this week…
This outfit represents secondhand shopping at Value Village, Salvation Army Thrift Shop, Hope Missions Bargain Shoppe, Plato’s Closet AND shopping local. There are more than enough secondhand options to suit any style and budget!
I could have worn this dress another 25 ways and maybe after that, people would start to notice what I was up to… Nowadays, we wear clothes a couple of times then they fall apart or are pushed aside for the next trend. Fashion Revolution‘s response to that is: STOP. Buy less, buy what you love, and wear it more.
