Let’s be honest, whether you’re into fashion or not - we all buy into it or we wouldn’t be alive; at least not if you’re living in London. Fashion comes in many forms to different people whether that means you love the high street and lust after Topshop, splurge on designer pieces or if you pick and choose from charity shops - at the end of the day it’s all fashion.
I can’t stand it when people say they don’t buy into fashion because even if it’s not clothes we all have something we’re into. Now to many that might be bikes, cooking equipment or books - it’s all fashion. This brings me to my second hate; when people roll their eyes, specifically at girls who buy endless clothes. Don’t get me wrong, there is a line when it becomes excessive but it varies hugely depending on that persons means and needs. If you’re on a lemonade budget, buying two pairs of black boots with different heel heights is probably excessive but to others is perfectly logical and acceptable.
The other thing to understand is this. If a girl buys 10 items from the high street for £30 each you might well say that she spends too much and she doesn’t need it but what if I buy 10 items from a charity shop for say a fiver each? Still the same amount - but significantly less money spent. Just think about it.
Lastly - next time you criticise someone for buying into fashion you might want to rethink buying that shiny book cover or slightly nicer cycling rucksack or that non stick spatula you’ve seen; and for that timeless, wonderful comment of - ‘but it’s functional!’ - yes, but so are clothes - we wouldn’t be alive without them!
