So far in this series, we’ve discussed modern slavery and how to fight it, what ethical fashion accomplishes, and I showed you the ten things I’m wearing this month. This week let’s get personal, and practical.
Every item in our closet tells a story… beyond where we bought it and what we wore it to.
I decided to look in my closet to read the story behind the barcode of what I’ve bought. Note, I made this video a few weeks ago; that’s why my hair is considerably longer!
I was totally channelling that Capital One card commercial at the end.
Try it! I think you might be surprised by what you find!
If you know you have a closet full of clothes, but still feel like you have nothing to wear, I recommend shopping your closet (the instructions are in the “homework” section). You might remember this from last year’s Fashion 101 series. I find it helpful to shop my closet once a season; looking at each item reminds me that it’s there, and inspires me to create new combinations.
Have you shopped your closet recently? What’s the story behind the barcode on the things you buy?
