When it comes to clothes, people tend to own far more than they actually wear. Stylists say the average woman wears about 20% of the clothes she owns on a regular basis. And yet, people, especially women, often get ready in the morning feeling like they have nothing to wear. At the end of the day, most people go back to the same clothes they wear most of the time, despite going shopping on a regular basis to get good deals.
I’m not a big fan of December despite the fact that it’s the month I was born. It marks the beginning of the winter, and I don’t care much for the cold. The only highlights of December are my birthday and New Year’s Eve. I did, however, manage to do some things and try some products that I really liked in December so here are my December favorites.
It’s been a while since I last made a favorites post so I thought I’d share my November favorites.
I frequently get asked where I get my clothes from so I wanted to make a brief post introducing my favorite fashion brands.
... even if it's a dress.
Somehow I still can't get over how beautiful my ten days in Malta were and keep looking for ways to share more pictures from the trip. You can see a few of them in my Malta sneak peek, my vegan Malta post, and my outfit post.
I thought I'd share a few sunset pictures in which I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses.
I just got back from a long weekend in Sofia so I haven't really had time for a new post. Therefore, I decided to opt for something that still shows you a bit from my recent trip to Malta (check out my sneak peak and my detailed posts on the trip itself and the vegan food I had there).
I have previously written about ethical fashion and the truth about fast fashion and can now happily say that I haven’t purchased anything from a fast fashion brand in over a year. We have to realize that anything that is fast and makes a lot of money is probably problematic with regards to human rights, animal rights, and the environment.
I had mentioned in my holiday wish list that I wanted to get a pair of Oxfords from Golden Ponies. As it turned out, my mother got me two pairs for my birthday: the pink pair I mentioned in the other post, and the brown and beige pair I'm going to talk about in this post.
These are some things that I've been loving lately.
H&M is one of the most well-known fast fashion brands in the world with thousands of stores on all continents. The retailer’s success is based on low prices and aggressive marketing, including collaborations with high-profile celebrities. As any big company, H&M is interested in profits and nothing more. A lot of money is spent on their marketing campaigns and the décor in their stores. The prices are kept low so that the lower middle class can afford to shop there, and yet Stefan Persson, the son of H&M founder Erling Persson, is one of the richest people in the world. His son Karl-Johan Persson is currently the CEO of H&M. How is that possible when we, the consumers, have to pay such low prices, and H&M spends so much money on advertising and nice locations?
