Recently I have been going through a wardrobe re-vamping trying to figure out what my style is. In the process of taking quizzes and digging through my closet to see what I actually like and what was just trendy, I discovered tons of information about fast fashion (inexpensive clothing produced rapidly by mass-market retailers in response to the latest trends) the problem with this is when the trends go out of style we throw out these once trendy clothes and buy more. All of this goes out into the landfill creating massive havoc of the ecosystem. Here is a video essay by Jordan Theresa who can colorfully breakdown this topic of fast fashion.
After watching her video I went down a whirl pool of videos on YouTube about what affect companies like pretty little thing and fashionnova who produce fast fashion are having on our planet. It was honestly very informative and depressing. so instead of buying my new wardrobe I am challenging myself to thrift those pieces instead.
I have always long adored the effortless minimalist fashion look. That is the revamped look ✨minimalism✨ you know the I woke up like this, fabulously put together with a snap of a finger look.
In honor of Trying to reduce my carbon foot print and have a more eco friendly and sustainable closet I am creating a capsule wardrobe (a capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe containing a certain number of pieces that you can create 10-20 outfits out of.) Having a capsule wardrobes is what I am told will help me look put together and will cause less stress when looking for an outfit.
unfortunately I went shopping before I learned all this information and bought a few pieces from Zara 1 of them being the infamous white collard button down shirt. It was pretty pricey but it has lasted me a few wash cycles and is still in great shape.
