England’s House of Lords’ Science and Technology Committee released a report that harshly condemned cheap and chic insta-fashion, calling it “costly and socially unacceptable.” …To bring the harsh reality home, consider this: A closet crammed with cheap, disposable clothes is actually more expensive than a wardrobe of well-made, long-wearing classics.
I do think the article raises salient points. All things being equal, more expensive clothing will be better quality (does that mean that its workers will be treated more fairly? I’m asking a real question here). I think almost every women want to have a timeless wardrobe and flattering fits, but HOW timeless and HOW luxurious depends on personal circumstances. It’s something I struggle with
Theory’s quality is better than Payaya’s, no doubt. But it comes down to the question of: Can I AFFORD the quality in my current financial situation? Do I WANT or NEED that degree of quality in my current lifestyle? WHERE does having a great, classic wardrobe fit on my list of priorities – does it come after saving for graduate school but before eating out 4x a week?
What do you think?
