This dress... as a Topshop Unique Sucker I found it on a resale website for about 30 Euro, with the original price at about 200 GBP I think. I had no other choice but to buy it immediately. Look at the crochet part with the 'cut-outs' and all the lace. The mushroom print reminds me of Jefferson Airplane's song 'White Rabbit'...

My point is: If you really wait for some amazing pieces of clothing come to you instead of chasing after every oncoming 'trend' to look like the images you've seen on pictures of other hip people that you want to imitate, this is when you truly become someone standing out of the crowd. I haven't bought clothes for almost half a year now, simply because I don't need to. Instead, I try to combine everything that I own into new styles, creating new looks and even new pieces to wear.

I know this may sound a little weird and not so conclusive, but I think we are producing way too much in this world. Plastic, waste, emissions, weapons, food, diseases, clothes, everyting! And because of that, we are wasting too much and at the same time we're giving back too little, which creates a huge disparity in this world. For us people from the Western Countries, it is totally normal to buy, to maybe spend hundreds of Dollars or Euros or whatelse on clothes each month, because 'this shirt is so cute, or I need those jeans in that colour, or because I don't have such a pullover in that colour'. But if you start to realize the meaning of the word 'obsolete', shouldn't you be able to realize that sometimes you don't need to do certain things if your survival is not affected? If you still have enough to wear so that you're not going to freeze to death in winter?
I want you all to think about it.

There is one last thing to mention: I have a sister who currently studies in China, which makes me the temporary owner of two closets. The stockings I'm wearing are her's, and I think sharing is the first step to create a better world, for you and for me, how Micheal Jackson said.
I hope his words will never be forgotten.

And I hope I just gave you something to think about.

Thank you for reading my words.

:)

this trully is an amazing dress Tram! It's so sophisticated and beautiful, love that design! And I think that your fashion and life philosophy is very reasonable! when you have too many things and still buy new stuff you stop to cherish them and you easily forget that you loved something once very much;))) Good luck with the contest<3333

great insight. so very true...and also cheap clothes take cheap labor and it's likely someone making a $4 tshirt is sweating and perhaps starving for it. so it's great to have key quality pieces, take care of them. And if you can manage - spend a bit more for fair, quality goods. Nice combo from the mix and match :-)
