Make Fashion Sustainable Again – Wear Convertible Clothing
Can #FastFashion be #SustainableFashion?
In the sense of production – probably not.
But since getting out of the vicious circle of consumption requires education and time, maybe at least we could try to use the stuff as long as possible?
As long as we still will be buying new things, or simply couldn’t afford the clothes that are more expensive, and made with respect for resources, we should work out other ways to decrease the bad impact of fashion industry.
So instead of throwing them away after one season, let’s think about how they can serve us longer.
High Street Temptations
Price-Less Yellow Dress
- my belly isn’t visible when I wear it ⠀
- that shade of yellow is so juicyc) it doesn’t crease (almost)⠀
- the fabric is quite airy
- it’s convertible (I ‘m gonna show it in a moment)
- I feel gorgeous in it!⠀⠀
- it’s made of poly
- it’s fast fashion
So despite the fact I’m a conscious person – this time I need to admit that this purchase will stay with me longer. My mission of #sustainablefashion has been saved!😁 ⠀
That dress is awesome – I can wear it in many ways (the newest idea is to mix it wit skinny jeans or cigarette pants). Loose – if I need an extra space around my waist area, wrapped with jewelled belt in my more confident days.
But wearing it as a skirt has been entirely the idea of my 8 years old daughter.
Firstly I was like – nah, it would look too odd.
But out of curiosity I tried. And it was IT!
Cheap & pricey
Looking like million dollars when you actually own million dollars is easy (although some rich people screw it anyway).
But mixing high and accessible brands requires some skills.
The best practice is to start with accessories.
I pimped my look up with a big black hat, bought on a trip to Mauritius last year. I found it on a souvenir stall and it was 10x cheaper than hats in my hotel boutique.
This little chain purse (can be worn also around the waist) is vintage Chanel – I’ve got it from eBay. Camelia thong sandals were purchased last year at Chanel boutique in Nice (on sale), and the belt (to uprgade that chanel-y vibe), studded with glass pearls, is from Bershka.

Czy #FastFashion może być #SustainableFashion?
W sensie produkcji – pewnie nie.
Ale skoro wyrwanie się z zaklętego kręgu konsumpcji wymaga edukacji i czasu, to może przynajmniej starajmy się używać kupionych rzeczy najdłużej jak się da?
Bo przecież ciągle kupujemy nowe rzeczy, albo po prostu nie mamy pieniędzy na droższe, wyprodukowane z poszanowaniem zasobów, ubrania.
Zamiast więc wyrzucać je po jednym sezonie, zastanówmy się, jak mogą nam służyć dłużej.
