What’s Your Response When Someone Tells You Your Not Very Fashion Conscious?
Fashion, what’s your thoughts? In season, last season, colour coordinated or do you even care?
Well, here is my take on fashion, for one I am so LAST SEASON and I will tell you why.
I go into the shops and see something I really like then I look at the price, now I’m not a cheap skate here far from it but when I see something that I think is rather overpriced that’s it, I ain’t buying it.
Nope, instead I’ll be like ok I will keep an eye on it and when it goes on sale I will grab it, although if I feel this is an item that will fly off the shelf and I really do love it then I will make an exception.
Here’s the thing though, I may wear it once then it goes in the wardrobe or packed away until the weather permits me to wear it again, I have on occasion been very guilty of not wearing it at all and the label still be attached.
What do I do with it? I give it to charity along with countless other items even household goods. I can’t be the only person here that does this.
The way I see it why throw it out when someone who may have nothing can get some use from it.
While I’m on the subject, something I noticed about retailers many years ago and I’m not sure if this still happens? When they put end of season cloths in the sale and those that don’t sell are all either gathered together for another store or put in a skip.
Now I know for a fact that they do or did this because I worked in retail, my thing is why not box everything up e,g men and woman’s cloths children’s cloths even household goods and put them in lorries/wagons and take them all to those in countries that are less fortunate than we are?
The homeless here in the U.K? Even people from war-torn countries who have had their homes bombed and are left with nothing.
Maybe it’s just me and yes I know those who know me are like; ‘Come on B, you want to put the world to rights but it’s not that easy’ Well actually it really is that easy but I’m not going to start ranting on about that because that is another story.
I am however and always have been colour coordinated the colour of my top must match my shoes and my handbag, even my eye makeup has a style all of its own.
I do have scruffy day’s like most people but only if I know I don’t have to leave the house and more often than not you’ll find me in my jeans.
Send me in some of your best shots in fashion I will feature them in an issue of PERUSE.
