In 2016, I spent $6500 on fashion. In 2017, I bought only Australian-made clothes. In 2018, I spent $9 on a pre-loved outfit, but otherwise, bought no new clothes. Yep, I tried the minimalist thing and bought nothing for 365 days.
This entire outfit has made by a woman who I’ve known for more than half a decade. She has children, she is passionate, she is incredibly talented, and she has never swayed from her values, remaining ethical and Australian made.
Values are what make us human. Values are what connect us, but they’re also what separates us. I value ethics and sustainability, and Burberry values their ‘reputation’, which is why they burn their end of season stock.
We all tend to make New Year’s resolutions, but what about new month resolutions? Sticking to one goal for a whole year can be hard, and let’s be honest, it’s pretty easy to fall off the wagon every now and again.
