I just purchased this UNBELIEVABLE dress from Indie Cult Vintage. I CANNOT wait until it gets here. I feel guilty, ridiculously extravagant, and selfish. Shit. I've promised myself I'm not going to buy anything at all next semester. We'll see how that goes.
Ethically, I find it troubling to support the fashion industry and the various ideologies it promotes. Physically, however, I cannot ignore my attraction to fashion. I have an almost insatiable appetite for pretty dresses with intricate details carved into luxurious fabrics, perfectly worn-in boots, and massive sweaters that are unnaturally soft. I may be a hypocrite, but at least I'm a hypocrite with good taste.
