I've always gotten a rush from shopping- that allure of a shiny new thing to bring home. For as long as I can remember, I've always gotten a clear and distinct dopamine spike, you know that feel-good buzz, from shopping.
Shopping is without question my drug of choice. Not exactly proud of that, but it's true. I love to shop and I love to buy new things. But, this time spent in stay-at-home quarantine has been sobering.
The good news- I’ve been shopping my own closet every day. I've been having quite a bit of fun actually restyling those old items that I already own. I’ve always loved clothes and loved getting dressed. Clothing is a very powerful too. I use clothing to empower and express myself, but it can not come at the expense of the environment. I literally wear my values.
For a long time I shopped in excess- completely unaware of why I bought what I bought. No wonder I always had tons of clothes- but nothing to wear. I’ve been discussing this in more detail on my bi-weekly Instagram LIVE series ReFashionTalk LIVE , every Monday + Friday, 11am PST. Send me your questions- I’m answering those too!
