We have dehumanized the people who make our clothes because we have made it ok for their labour to be just a few cents more than worthless. Every time we buy something that costs less than we think it should, we are implicit in that transaction. Money - our money - is what makes the fashion world go round. By disrupting the status quo, we have the power to change things. ~Tasmin Blanchard

This is so hard. The idea is to save money for the ethical, expensive clothes, instead of buying the cheap, exploitive clothes. But with my budget, I have save up for the cheap stuff. There's no way I could ever afford the expensive stuff. And I hate shopping so much that hunting for things in thrift stores just makes me want to scream. Sigh.
