Although it is very hard to buy sweat shop free clothing now as even respected designers use them - I am more careful about how much I choose to spend and where.
I learned to dress make, buy more second hand and buy/sell vintage too
The book is full of gossipy bits e.g. Anya Hindmarch, 'Confessions of abag lady', tips on recipes for cosmetics balanced with, what isavailable to buy, if you can't resist the glossy packaging.
In the section for DIY Style,I really fancy trying to make the Alexander McQueen Kimono Jacket . I do have some old kimonos which I can't throwaway but wouldn't mind recycling. Even if you have limited sewing
abilities, you will be inspired to make something of your own. I'm now collecting bits of junk to make a necklace with!
