Overdressed in Cheap Fashion?

MoneyWith the proliferation of fast-fashion stores like H&M and Forever 21, women are able to pick up the latest trends quickly and cheaply. Of course, there is another price to pay besides the purchase price, because these clothes aren’t designed to last.  Author Elizabeth Cline talks about her personal experience and reformation to the “slow fashion” way of thinking in this interesting article in the New York Times about her new book, “Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion”.  As a wardrobe consultant, I constantly deal with this aspect of wardrobe management, as I encourage women to buy the best quality they can afford for the items that they intend to wear for many years to come.  The initial upfront investment for classic pieces in your wardrobe is worth it in the long run. Not only that, we do our part for the environment by buying what we truly love and want to keep, because there is less waste.  How do you feel about ‘one-and-done’ fashion?
