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.

If you not familiar with the British label, House Of CB. You should be! It has been seen on celebrities like The Kardashians, reality-star Porsha Williams, mega-star Jennifer Lopez. All within a year House of CB has become the go-to sexy, sultry yet attention-grabbing hot-spot for garments that stun on red carpets. Conna Walker is the beauty with the brains who gave conception to the affordable luxury e-boutique in 2010. House of CB has flourished from its roots in London to expand internationally and its level  of product offerings.
