81 pounds

Back to school shopping, save some money and help the environment at the same time. 

81 pounds every years! This is what the average American throws away  every year in clothing, according to a Huffington Post article on the subject. It is ironic in this day and age that a good amount of people surveyed for this article said they were not aware they could donate unwanted clothes to thrift and vintage stores. 

H&M also introduced a program giving customers 15% off their purchase when they bring in their unwanted clothing items to the store.  Hopefully this sexy, trendy H&M ad will entice even the most protective of garment hoarders to help the cause of recycling instead of contributing their 81 pounds from ending up in a landfill. 


My Journey

     This blog will chronicle my journey from a want-a-be fashionista as a child, to becoming an entrepreneur of several fashion businesses and my current project of finishing my bachelors degree in journalism. My professional experiences, as a former vintage boutique owner in San Diego, to becoming a self taught clothing designer and now a wardrobe stylist and fashion journalist is the foundation of the content. 

     I hope to share fashion news, trends, inspiration and style, as well as the environmental impact the fashion and the clothing industry has on the world.  Along the way, through my eyes readers will get a little glimpse into the fashion business.

     Stay tuned in, as I go on this journey and I hope you enjoy the ride.
