Want to refresh your wardrobe but don't want to spend the 💵💵 I have a tip for you: raid your mum or dad's closet!
comes with stories to tell. Case in point: I'm wearing a knit sweater that belonged and was worn by my #father
in the late 1970's, when he was at Lancaster University, by a brand called Invicta. I don't know if the brand has any relations whatsoever to the present-day @invicta_official

When I was young, growing up in #KL,
I never had new clothes growing up. I always wore hand-me-downs from my dad (because he is not a tall man, so I'd fit into his trousers) and from my aunties and uncles. I always loved going through bags of clothes that somehow ended up at our house. Back then, we welcomed hand-me-downs. I feel like this mode of 'passing-on' might not be considered acceptable anymore. There's been a shift in fashion, for one: new clothes are now cheaper, and due to this I feel people are more inclined to want 'new' things.
This shift is a little sad, I believe, because it's led to a cultural normality that doesn't APPRECIATE things, or clothes, anymore.
Now that everything has slowed down during the #pandemic
crisis, do you think people will start appreciating things that they currently have more There's evidence that this is certainly the case 🙂so I'm certainly chuffed about that!
Next time you visit your mum or dad, ask them if they want to get rid of anything-- you might find a few gems from their glorious youth and maybe, just maybe-- discover a few gems about your folks, too 💛
