Fast Fashion

http://jezebel.com/5040032/we-love-cheap-stuff-but-fast-fashion-is-hard-to-defend
Interesting article about Fast Fashion (i.e., buying cheap because "it's just gonna go out of fashion so it's easier to dispose of it"). Believe it or not, I saw this on the blog of one of the younger guys who played on Chris's men's lax team. As a society, we're so used to just running into a store, trying on clothes and walking out w/ an outfit and not ever thinking about where our clothes come from or what material they're made of. I'm guilty of it. I don't think Fast Fashion affects men the way it does women. I do try to have "timeless" pieces -- a white button down shirt, black pants, a great pair of jeans, good pair of black shoes, a classic black purse, a wrap dress I can wear anywhere, etc. Unfortunately, with my limited social engagements, I very rarely have the opportunity to wear said "timeless" pieces! ha! ha!

you know, it just doesn't make sense to spend tons of money of the latest trends b/c they end up getting donated the next season. i do agree though it is nice to have timeless pieces too, ones that you can mix with the cheap fast fashion. :)
