"There's an argument that better-made, better-quality clothing is itself more sustainable. Buying a dress for a fiver and throwing it away after a couple of weeks is not environmentally friendly, whatever the fabric."

  1. Agree, I try to be more careful recently and invest in something that can last. I still have some clothes from when I was at uni! Even though reorganize the wardrobe and throw away the old ones always makes me feel relieved :) Have a good day Natalia xo

  2. This is absolutely true! Quality clothing will last longer and save you money in the long run. Some of my favorite pieces in my closet are at least 10 years old.

  7. Interesting quote! Do people actually throw away their clothes though? I always sell mine in consignment or donate them. There are a lot of homeless people in Buenos Aires, so I usually will leave a bag of donations next to the big containers instead of throwing anything away so they see it and can easily take it with them.

  8. So true, and and important message, when we have landfills of unused clothing choking our habitats! That said I have found dresses ( thrifted) for a fiver that have been mighty fine and will last for decades more! Happy weekend love.

  9. Не просто восхитительный снимок, но и слова. Как бы мне хотелось что бы людей разделяющих эту точку зрения было бесконечно больше!
