Very interesting thoughts about how many clothes we have vs. how many we need and how much we spend vs. how much quality we’re buying. This is my comment:
So interesting. I’ve been thinking about this topic recently as well. The plight of factory workers overseas has really been hitting me. However, being the size that I am, I have trouble finding clothes that fit just about anywhere, but particularly at thrift shops, where at least I know I’d be ethically shopping (not to mention helping my budget). I just kind of hate shopping in general, and shopping with little kids is akin to poking myself in the eye with a sharp stick. I’d like to shop on Etsy, but I can’t afford it at the moment. I can sew, but that leads to its own quandaries: First of all, I need more training in clothes making in particular. Then, where do I find the time? Where can I find quality fabric that’s not too expensive?
I also appreciated the article Michelle linked to: The History of a Cheap Dress
