Confessions of a Fashion Addict: Part 1

Confessions of a Fashion Addict: Part 1

“You give away more clothes than I own,” said a friend years ago when I showed up to a dance rehearsal with a couple big bags of clothes to share. It wasn’t the first time I found myself purging large amounts of clothing, and it certainly wasn’t the last. Eventually I started thinking about my shopping habits, and I began to realize that I was guilty of mindless consumption, but many years would pass before I would make significant changes. I felt okay with the rapid cycle of mixing up my wardrobe because it was fun, plus I would pass along my discarded clothes to friends, or donate them to charities. Little did I know what actually happens with donated clothing. (Spoiler: Almost all of it ends up in a landfill.)
