More Blog Action...Check out Fashion, Evolved.
I read a PR blog about how fashionistas are turning into "recessionistas" and hitting up H&M, Forever 21, Target, and the ilk to get their fix without spending a ton of money. At the same time I'm reading tons of Blog Action Day posts about fighting poverty. Hmmm...
So I sincerely hope my fellow fashionistas won't start sacrificing quality just to have MORE of something. Especially when it's not only the quality of your clothing, but quite probably the quality of life of the person who makes that clothing.
Check out any "best dressed" list and you will find women who have developed a personal style based on quality wardrobe staples and not fly-by-night trendiness that falls apart. And the Fashionably Responsible best-dressed woman knows to look for clothing that is ethically produced while she's at it.
There's a lot of inspiration to be found today, but we were especially inspired by the Blog Action Day post by our friend Amanda Q over at Fashion, Evolved. She shares some startling facts about the disparity between fashion CEOs and garment worker salaries from the Sweat Shop Watch website and has some strong feelings about flash/trash fashion vs. sustainable fashion.
