The Fast Fashion Fast

A week ago I signed up for The Fast Fashion Fast.  

I feel like as a blogger who champions charity shopping you might think that this is a waste of time for me, and that I have already got this thing down but you would be wrong. There are two things that I need to tackle fully when it comes to fashion.

1. I need to fully stop supporting fast fashion.

Although I buy the majority of my clothes from charity shops I am guilty of popping into primark, new look, h&m etc and buying bargains. Recently when I was in Ibiza I bought a hell of a lot of statement t-shirts from bershka, mango and pimkie and I did it on impulse. I tend to buy my shoes from New Look and I buy lots of pairs I don't need. 

2. I need to minimalise my wardrobe.

Despite the fact that I have been taking bags and bags to charity shops my wardrobe is still full of things I don't wear! I am starting to put outfits together I want to wear but I need to stop buying things until I have a streamlined version of what I actually want to add to my wardrobe and shop JUST for that.
So that said I am taking this challenge further. For the months of June, July and August I will be participating in a fashion fast. Thats right, no clothes, shoes or accessories for the whole three months. The only exception to the rule is when I am in London at the end of July I am hunting for a really cool pair of vintage converse. 

Are you taking part in the fast fashion fast? I would love to know how you are getting on!
