Dear Fashion, in case you were curious, this (click here for the link to above thumbnails) is what I'd like to wear. You have perhaps noticed that I don't speak often of you in your modern incarnation? It is not that I dislike your recent creations it is that, I think, they dislike me. I do not want to purchase (though sometimes need too) your manufactured in dodgy conditions with dodgy materials garb and cannot presently afford to purchase your lovingly crafted beauteous achievements (my fault for spending all surplus funds on delicious pimple inducing foods) and am therefore destined to wear other people's (grandmas) castoffs. I do not mind this, and never have (evidently as I've made a career of hunting these orphaned garments) I just wanted to make it clear that I do like you, I do. It's just, well, we've got a lot of work to do, friend.

  3. hannah, i totally agree :) i do have a very soft spot in my heart for prettymadeinitalyshoes, but you know... i'm not perfect, hehe... but it's also about the planet. sometimes i wish i could make people understand how much making/buying secondhand does for the earth. almost everything i buy is second hand, even the stuff that isn't vintage... like american apparel, h&m, etc... you can find on ebay used for cheaper. anyways, i'd love to rummage through thrift stores with you :)

  7. I wonder if you'll receive a reply from the adressed! It would be terribly rude of Fashion to disregard such a charming letter.

  8. ooh this post is wonderful. as an art history nerd and generally nostalgic person, this is kind of right up my alley.
