The politics of clothes

After seeing a review in Bust Magazine, I have been reading Elizabeth Cline's "Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion". I realized that although I am very careful about what I eat (buying organic and local as much as I can) I buy clothes in all these places that are feeding into the problem of cheap labor, lower quality and disposable clothes. It is definitely going to inform my fashion choices from now on.
Today I found that one of my favorite vintage dresses has the ILGWU label and that made me really happy.
