I quit

Whelp, it's been FIVE YEARS since I started this blog. Crazy! And I'm ready to commit to something I should have long ago... I'm done with new clothes. I've always been a thrifter and garage saler and always avoided even secondhand things from Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, H&M, Zara etc... Buuuut I'd pick up new jeans or tees here and there (usually Target, Gap, or J.Crew). Or buy a new dress to attend a wedding, or buy a fancy designer item to reward myself once in a while, whatever. But I've got a big enough wardrobe, and take good enough care of it, and good enough care of myself so it continues to fit that I think I can do it. I can still thrift and there are certain things (like running shoes, tights, underwear, etc.) that just have to be new. But otherwise, I'm done. I just can't justify slave labor, child labor, unsafe working conditions, and loss of life for a $10 shirt. And it's exhausting sending myself into an existencial crisis every time I set foot in a store. So no more brand new things. I don't want to contribute to the endless cycle of consumption and trends at such a high cost to the environment and people's lives. So I'm done. FOREVER. Well, I hope!
