When I sat down to write I planned to say it had already been a month since this blog began. But I felt bad boasting about not repeating a single outfit item, when so many people are having a really bad time with all this fire and flooding (like those two should be happening simultaneously). I feel guilty for my consumerism. I feel guilty for my upcoming holiday. But then I get mad because I feel guilty when really, in the scheme of things, I am small fry. I don't drive, I don't always even use public transport. I op-shop most of my clothing—shoes and underwear are my main exceptions. I recycle, I turn off lights and I usually freeze in winter rather than popping on the portable heater, and boil in summer rather than getting air conditioning and our water consumption per person is below the benchmark. But still I feel guilty, and it is because we are made to feel that way. And I don't think Ford or Nike or Apple are. My opinion, of course. By the way, I also started off planning to say thank you to all of you for listening to my rants for the last month, and for visiting. In one month I have surpassed the number of visits that the whole of last year's blog had and I have only you to thank!! I hope you stay around. Xxx
Who wore it better?
