Have clothes that fit you strange? Or that you never wear, but won’t get rid of?
Make it better!
Being someone who doesn’t like being wasteful, nor do I have the wallet for buying new—- I’ve become more inventive/creative with my wardrobe. First— I’ve stopped buying new. Fact: There are already more clothes produced in the world, that we can give GIGANNNNTTIIICCCC wardrobes to each and EVERY person in the entire world! Can you believe we continue to manufacture clothing ? What’s worse—- to combat the decline in economy, new fiber/textiles have been created in replacement of natural ones— which now make the clothes you find in Forever21 or H&M cheaper (no not yay), but cannot biodegrade and fill landfills!!! What the heck is happening?!?! Enough politics for now, but just remember that instead of buying something new next time—- look in your closet to see if you can make something new outta something old.
