It's Time to Stop Bragging About How Little You Paid for Your Clothing

We all know the common style compliment response…..“ Thanks, I got it for $10” or whatever great deal the consumer feels they received. But quite frankly this is not something to be bragging about……low price isn’t always a good thing. It’s usually a sign of fast fashion which involves slavery, disrespect, and suffering.

I’m not saying this is always the case in a cheap find, but a lot of times it is. It’s time to rethink how we respond and focus less on bragging about the price because as Lucy Siegle says “Fast fashion isn’t free. Someone somewhere is paying.”
