** Because I have many new readers (and now hopefully listeners), and because I am constantly carry on about being a conscious consumer, cleaning out your closet and learning how to live with less which should ultimately sharpen your style, I wanted to revisit this podcast with journalist/author Dana Thomas. You might want to buy her book; it’s an eye-opener. (Considering adding more podcasts, love to hear if you want more.)
I have known Dana Thomas for years and was so thrilled to catch her on her book tour from Paris recently to have a serious fashion discussion. As Dana says, “What Should I Wear?” is one of the fundamental questions we ask ourselves every day. But choosing what to wear and where to shop can have consequences. Dana’s her third book Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes brings to light the uncomfortable truths we often ignore or don’t know about when we buy, say, that cute t-shirt, just because. Thankfully she also talks to people creating innovative solutions that look to the future of fashion.
Reading her book really made me rethink how I look at every fashion purchase I make. Please go to iTunes to listen here. And if you like what you hear, please subscribe and share with friends!
