-two moves overseas
-a family of four + two dogs
-no storage units or shipping crates
-in two and a half years
i'm not sure, but that might qualify as 4 kicks in the pants at least. funny thing is, i kind of liked it!
i do love fashion. i bought my first bazaar magazine when i was twelve. i like to express myself with my clothing. i just found out that i don't need a lot of pieces to do that.
-the working conditions of the people who make the clothing i buy and wear
-the chemicals involved in cotton growth, fabric manufacture, dying, etc.
-the emissions created by the process of moving the pieces of the clothing from field to shop rack
the combination of being happy with less and concern about my clothing's history really changed the way i looked at my wardrobe. my desire for clothing lessened and i was able to step back and see the bounty i already possessed instead of the holes i needed to fill with more.
what's your story?
