No, this dress would’ve never got to hang in my closet if I saw it in store today. But as we all know, it’s useless trying to change the past. Earlier this year I promised myself not to buy anything ever again in a bad material.
It’s a limitation. There’s so many pretty things that sadly don’t match my nowadays relatively high demands. Sure, I’m tempted to just do a tiny exception from time to time. Panting after that dress, that blouse, those pants…
But then again, it’s quite nice too. I mean, how many pretty things aren’t there today? The answer is WAY too many. Therefore, it’s nice to, with the blink of an eye, be able to exclude a large deal of clothing and focus on the cherry picking.
To know that the things I’m considering are the most precious, luxurious, things doesn’t only make me happy with my choice in the end, it also makes me happy about myself. Knowing that I’ve contributed with my buy, voting with my wallet, influencing the market to take one tiny step towards only developing things with high quality and out of good materials.
Today I ask you the same thing as I did yesterday: do you want to join me?
Modern women don’t choose between sustainability and luxury, we taket hem both
Pssst… If you want to I (of course!) think it’s a good idea to sig up for my newsletter (although it's in Swedish the cheat sheet about materials is in English!). You also get an invitation to Best Secret. On top of that you get a more direct channel to me, and that’s always fun! At least I think so, since I want to talk to you!
