Stylish quote

"We are not buying timeless or heirloom pieces any more. Just stuff - and with no thought. We think that cheap t-shirt is the answer because we got a good deal, but ultimately, there's a price we're going to pay somewhere along the way."

  1. I could not agree more with this statement. I could tell a long story about why - but suffice to say that I think Amber is absolutely right.

  2. That was truly an amazing quote. I think with everything we buy, we have to factor in what will last and what won't. Some cheap brands sell dreams they can't uphold. And some expensive brands, that only price their items just to stay in a certain "Circle", isn't guaranteed to give you quality either. I gotta go read this interview now.

  5. Amber is so gorgeous! The quote is so true, too many cheap tees when we should be looking for something special


  6. So true! I was at the mall yesterday and was amazed by how cheap most things looked. It is a lot harder to find quality now.

  7. I sometimes love buying cheap tees and some I've worn for years. Not exactly sure where she is coming from...

  8. I'm totally agree with you. People are not looking at the quality anymore... Amber looks amazing! :)

  9. So true! We all need to stop and think about this for a second.

  10. So very, very true, and sad. I was always taught that it was not the amount of clothing that counted, it was the quality. A few well-made, classic pieces travel much further than cheap "trendy" pieces.

    Thanks for highlighting this very important lesson.

  11. Agree! It ends up in the trash and stays.

  12. I agree wholeheartedly! Wrote a post about fast fashion and how it ends up in landfills, and pollutes..
    I wish, we as a culture, were broader ended and more forward thinking.
    Thanks for this intelligent post.
