One man’s junk is another man’s treasure, so why can’t so called “junk food” give us something that we can really chew on…like fashion? If you’ll notice, all of the things that are generally unhealthy to put inside your body – animal fats, fatty oils, cholesterol – are actually GREAT to put on the body. (Natural soap is nothing but animal fat, fatty oils make the best lotions and cholesterol is good for the hair.) Whether you should use these products or not isn’t the topic of today’s blog post.
My focus for this news update is when fashion and food collide. The same ornate culinary salesmanship that entices you to buy that sorbet pancake wrap or the whip cream pastry provides some beautiful templates for seasonal ensembles. From heartburn to eat your heart out – fast food can become quite elegant when used as a fashion inspiration. Sometimes…
Are you what you eat?
Moschino’s 2014 collection was a hit on the runway, and I believe that the main reason is because people want to have fun with their clothes. I totally get it and agree, but… Enough is enough! Oh well, I guess that’s what happen when you play with your food.
Junk food is just one of the options you have. Same goes with FAST FASHION. I know that many people would like to make ethical purchases but fast fashion seems to them like the only way. It’s not. You can reuse your clothes before recycling them, and make your purchases more thoughtfully. For example by shopping vintage clothing or buying “new” clothes in thrift stores. You can also get the Good On You App (See my post HERE). It is the easy add on that allows you to check brands for their impact on animals, people and the environment as a whole.
Never forget. Each and every one of us buys clothes and through those purchasing decisions we have a huge impact on people, the planet, and animals.
Junk food might be cheap, but who said you were supposed to eat it anyway? As a nature lover, I sure (try to) stay away from it! Ditto with the brands that are not doing the work of green business. But I am the kind of person who tries to make the best of everything, and I find a lot of great things in what everyone else may call junk. Hopefully my food-inspired fashion collages will help you find the best in the everyday things around you, and inspire you to make beautiful treasures out of the “junk pile”. There is no such thing as junk – just a junky attitude.
Enjoy and feast your eyes!
