Visited our friends at Vibrant Vintage and was awarded a lucky dip in their trunk of scarves. I like to braid them into my hair like so ...
... oh, the pallor.
I mixed my prints like a good'un ... red and white print silk shirt, print tunic length top, cotton voile block print skirt.
Judgmentalism and Primark, discuss.
I didn’t post what I wore yesterday, because some of it came from Primark. This makes me uncomfortable because it often feels like a judgement call - and I find myself searching for a justification that I do not want to make.
If I’m honest, the reason I don't (often) shop the High Street is because I don’t want to be wearing something someone else will have (even if I wouldn’t wear it the same way) - other than for some high-minded resolution on grim working practices/sustainability.
But, having said that - I do click on environmental policies (or greenwash to the more cynically-minded) on a website - or go visit www.ethicalfashionforum.com/the-issues in order to keep myself informed.
Then again, reading sites like www.cleanclothes.org make you despair at ever being able to do the ‘right’ thing. And then there's the writing about it on your electronic gadget of probably equally dodgy provenance? Where does it end?
I’ve decided to post/wear/buy what I choose to, without justification to anyone other than myself. What others choose to do is none of my damn business - and that includes judgmentalism. This is not to say, I’ll be ignoring bad working practices/sustainability - just trying to navigate it and not be a hypocrite.
