just a lil' slip

I'm enjoying taking outfit photos again. I'm also really enjoying that most of this outfit is is thrifted for two reasons: it cost me very little and it means I am sticking to my "no fast fashion" policy. About this policy: I just feel like as a person who likes fashion and personal style, I can use my voice to speak out on how depressing it is to me to think about how wasteful the fashion industry can be. It's certainly hard to avoid buying cute lil' things at H&M and Zara (who I am boycotting for being thieves more than fast fashion culprits) but when the thrift stores in your tiny hometown have fun nighties like this one, it gets easier. I love this ditzy little print, especially with these earrings I got from a peddler's fair. I kind of feel like an 70s hooker in this, but maybe that's just me.

  1. There is so much I love about this outfit - those shoes! the earrings! The fact that so much of it is thrifted (I'm all about the thrift!).

    Fast fashion sucks. I so often crave new fashion and am so tempted to go into the easy stores where I'm sure to find something new and exciting. But I 100% agree that thrifting is actually MORE satisfying. It's like a mcdonald's cheese burger (which actually seems gross to me now, so let's say mcd's fries) versus. a home made healthy salad. One has better lasting effects ;)

  2. nice earrings...super cute shoes


  3. Oh you look fab! I am guilty of buying from Primark and H&M, I wish I didn't but sometimes I just want new clothes and being a student makes me poor. Our thrift stores are always sooo overpriced too! (I think they assume that they can call it vintage and charge silly amounts.) xxx

    1. Yeah totally, it's definitely difficult to commit to as a student and just as a person with very little money. It's a process and I still cave sometimes, but I just like it being something I strive for.
