Vivienne Westwood Says Stop Buying Clothes

Participating in The Great American Apparel Diet — to not buy new clothes for one year — might be easier for me than others, but it’s good to know that someone as distinguished as Vivienne Westwood supports the idea. I’ve always been a quality over quantity kind of girl, but I will admit to having bought into a few fashion trends while living in mall obsessed SoCal.

“With all the scandals tainting clothing retailers recently, could simply not shopping for clothes solve all our woes? Making an appearance on BBC News this morning, British fashion designer (and one of our favorite dames) Vivienne Westwood encouraged viewers to give up shopping for at least six months—unless they absolutely had to—to keep our landfills from filling up. Do you agree?” via Ecouterre
