So why have I started this blog... I have a closet full of high street brand clothes but I always wondered about the circumstances of their production. I am hoping that running this blog will make me a more informed consumer who will make better shopping decisions in the future and maybe I can inspire some people to do the same.
Other than buying products that weren't made in a sweatshop here are some other ideas how we can make a change (I'd love to read more suggestions - add your comment!):
- go thrifting - for inspiration visit Lauren's fabulous blog "Fops and Dandies", look at "Dreamecho", "Fashion Toast", "Karla's Closet" or any of the other fashion blogs that are written by women who love to go thrifting.
- make your own clothes - it's a lot of fun but you need some patience. Have a look at burdastyle.com
- swap clothes with your friends
