Can I do it? 365 Days No Fast-Fashion #nofastfashion18

It’s that time of year again new year’s resolutions, vision boards, and yearly challenges.  Personally, I really suck at committing to challenges. I’m still working on my discipline and planning skills. { Sidenote: I am also creating a vision board this year and planning will be a big focus for me next year.}   For 2018 I am going to try something different, I feel like in 2017 I have been on one long shopping bender.  

gift-brown-shopping-marketSooooooo I am going to go against that which is natural to me and challenge myself to not buy from fast fashion brands or clothes.  Now…let me tell you, I am the queen of fast fashion brands like Forever 21, Target, GS Love and SHEIN.  I love fashion-forward, on-trend affordable fashions. To be completely honest, fast-fashion is addicting and I’ve fallen under the lull of its sweet, sweet low prices. Honestly, I am little nervous about this challenge as I have to be more intentional about where I shop, how I shop, truly plan ahead. Also, I might just have to be okay with not buying something new constantly.  Take a step back and just be blessed and grateful for what I already have.

Okay, is here what you can expect from me this year. Please, keep me accountable. 

  1. A monthly post featuring a slow-fashion brand, thrift finds, local designer creation and maybe some luxury brands thrown in there. 
  1. A short video of me unboxing and quick review of the product. 
  1. Also sharing some tips, news, and information about how we can all incorporate some slow-fashion movement ideas into our daily shopping life. 

Also if you have not done so please follow my Instagram @fashionable__demand and the website www.fashionabledemand.com.  I’ll be posting my challenge on those channels as well as my personal site IG. If you want to join the challenge tag your IG post with #nofastfashion18.  

**** Disclaimer: Can I please be excused from any fast-fashion purchases I have to make in the name and sake of my wedding budget. Thanks in advance! ****
