“May this Festival, Come up with Beautiful Beginning, Fresh Hopes and New Dreams. Wishing You all a Very Happy Diwali”
My first blog may surprise some and shock many. “I probably won’t wear this dress again because it’s already on my social media.” Are you someone to have this thought?
There is a style wave in the country, of fast fashion where we are constantly being served looks and style with innumerable options staring at us through our phones and computers, and as a victim we started shopping mindlessly.
Known as a ”Fashionista” among all my friends and family, someone who’s a Shopaholic and Maximalist is here with a DHAMAKA on this special day of My Birthday & Diwali. Something Ashish and my mother surely gonna love and get delighted for.
I here by take this challenge to “Not-Shop” (Cloth) for one entire year i.e. from 27th Oct,2019 to 27th Oct 2020. Tough for a person like me but like a pro I,ll ace it.
In past couple of years, I have simplified my life and this is one of them. Dressing is not something I agonise over anymore. Ever since this curiosity, I have shifted myself from quantity to quality, fast fashion to classic, maximalist to minimalist, throwaway to sustainable. * Wondering why?? To highlight a serious problem
While scanning my wardrobe prior Diwali, I noticed there are many unsung heroes like everyone else. We all are victims of fast fashion, that encourages us to want more and more. More than half of our closet are pieces we keep to wear once or twice in a year. We also deal with the stress of always feeling like we have to wear something new every time we step out.
Shopaholic almost tend to have materialistic values. These people shop compulsively. The problem has only worsened in our culture of disposability, where repeating clothes is often perceived as a sign of failure: of not being powerful enough or desirable enough to acquire things.
