There is definite connection between eating and shopping. Both are sometimes necessary and more often an indulgence; both are about consuming, after all.
We eat for energy and for entertainment…we shop for necessities and for recreation. You get my drift.
Fast fashion is a lot like fast food: cheap, mass-produced, a quick fix… but not very satisfying.
In 2011 I resolve to think more about buying less; to value the story behind the merchandise and less about the bargain I bagged.
I am drifting away from the lure of the sale; now if only I can remain under the influence… of soulful shopping. Help me, y’all!
