Dec 4: a good read

When the shopping streets are filling with bargain-hunters looking for affordable presents or that little black dress for the season’s parties, Elizabeth L. Cline’s Overdressed – The shockingly high cost of cheap fashion – would be a good read for anyone planning to hit the high street. While the writer reveals the truth behind cheap and mass produced clothes, she does it without judgement and even reveals her own weakness for disposable clothing. While expensive doesn’t necessarily equal sustainable, Over-Dressed gives us all something to think about; or at least leaves us with a little bit more information which is difficult to ignore.
