Before deciding on the fast, we had a lovely, long breakfast at the Wolseley.
Excellent strong coffee, proper croissant and fresh juice. We fortified ourselves and now we are ready for it. The fast fashion fast, I mean.
October is dedicated to shopping with full awareness. No looking into H&M, Top Shop or ASDA. No sneaky visits to ZARA, GAP, PRIMARK and the like. (Emails from j.crew, straight into the junk folder, ok?) This should not be too hard, as already weaned myself from those shops, (with the exception of Top Shop boutique, ‘made in England’ only clothes – I like to support our turf.)
The fast fashion fast
Make no mistake, this is not a shopping ban. It’s a fast fashion fast, you’ve seen my budget. The creation of a tres chic long term London wardrobe has no room for fast fashion. Clearly, we should have no room for cruel fashion either. (have you read this? Pay attention to the last paragraph, the trend for furry handbag thingies (or anything fur) will not seem quite so appealing.) make your own fashion story…here. Or here
For just one month, my goal is to be trully mindful, researching everything I buy. Obviously no fast fashion, but will look deeper into how things are made. If I don’t like what I find, or if more likely, ‘information not available’ I will not buy. I want to know where my clothes are made, who made them and what sort of environmental impact they have.
Don’t forget that overindulging in fast fashion is one of the major four shopping errors.
Who is going to join me on this 28 day fast fashion fast? Do we think we can last that long?
