I almost never purchase new clothing, preferring instead to wear second-hand wearables. I strive to do this because the very act of clothing manufacturing imposes a huge footprint on the environment, and I'm trying to live "small" in that regard. Also, while shopping second-hand, I seek out comfortable and practical clothing, rather than anything that might make a fashion statement of sorts. I've taken myself out of the competition, as if I ever was 'in the running' for Fashion Queen, and I don't give a hoot what anyone else wears as well, though I do try to dress for the occasion (for example, unless I'm the bride, I never wear white to a wedding!!).
