Wearing this dress all month taught me how to truly value my clothing. It validated my "less is more" approach to my personal wardrobe. I learned more about the fast fashion industry (how parallel it's to our plastic disposable problem) and its detrimental effects on people, environment, and the devaluing of materials and possessions. I also learned more about designers who are truly creating thoughtful, lasting, sustainable, and adaptable clothing. This black linen dress (from @prairieunderground ) held up beautifully this month and I know it still has many years of wear to come. Drown out the noise of fast fashion trends and invest in items that you can take ownership of. Put value back into the makers, materials, and the planet!
