btw, i also agree with the idea of buying less.
i did a major clothing purge last year (donating a lot of it, but a lot of it became rags also). and i'm down to my 'essentials'--and then i learned that i need even fewer 'essentials' than i thought i did!
so, i'm going to purge again, and only replace what i need to replace. i have two pairs of jeans, 5 pairs of yoga pants (in need of purge), a number of sweaters (in need of purge), t shirts (in need of purge), undergarments, one suit and two dresses (should purge).
undergarments are in good shape and i am learning that i don't need bras. i have enough jeans, no problem there. at least three of my yoga pants need to 'go' and thus i need three replacements. most of my t-shirts are dead; i plan on making them into a rag rug for my rabbit and then replacing. i have to decide what i want to do about the dresses--i rarely wear them, or rather only wear them in summer. and i rarely wear the suit--but i do keep it around for weddings.
anyway, any replacing that i do will be done with fair trade, organic stuff. it looks like i'm going to streamline my wardrobe down mostly to yoga clothes that can be worn out like regular clothes (that is, the yoga pants don't look "sporty" but look like pants that one would wear out shopping or whatever)--and thus decrease need for two sets of clothing: yoga and casual wear.
but, i want to replace with a few, high quality items rather than many low cost ones that will go shapeless and illfitting to quickly.
