I’ve been talking about about some of the weaknesses of the system fast fashion. This moved me so much that I thought: I will become a monk and I’ll practice the detachment! Ok, it was not exactly like that, but I began to question what was, in my opinion, buyable. Are the expensive clothes? Well, when we buy a designer clothing, we receive something of high quality that will last for years and we won’t need to worry about consuming exaggeratedly, because who has something really good should make excellent use of it in various combinations, right? But we must always pay a high price for the quality and so make good use of it? Honestly, not always! Would you say that, with a clinical perspective, we couldn’t buy nice things for good prices in a department store? I would say yes! That’s what happened to me, I believe.
Despite my resistance to the pantsuits (don’t ask me why), I wanted one in brocade effect fabric. I found: one white in Renner (a brazilian departament store) and one red in Folic. Renner or Folic? Renner or Folic. Renner or Folic. . . It was then that I realized how much it had affected me talk about fast fashion system and my tend in not buying any thing, but well selected and good quality clothes. “But Cri, your (Vogue) glasses was broke so fast! So, don’t matter the brand, it is all about the quality of the object plus how you use it!” (Did you hear that? Let it go, I thought I heard a my grandmother in her grave whispering – God rest her soul in peace – that old pot is what makes food good!). Well, well, well, the white pantsuit from my old Renner didn’t leave nothing to be desired to the Folic. Folic or Renner? I will choose Renner, when I feel good or Folic when I please, because, in terms of style, the price is irrelevant to those who have personality. So while I’m not going to Tibet, I will continue trying to find me. . . at any price, whatever the cost.
