I personally do think that lockdown has made many of us rethink our over-expansive wardrobes. We now exist in ‘uniforms’ of comfort and practicality on repeat and I have realised that I have far to many ‘meh’ clothes that need to be moved along. Even if I like some items, but don’t have the lifestyle to wear them they get donated. (Easier said than done at the moment). My vintage wool coats from charity shops have outlasted anything that I have bought on the high street and no-one else has got them. The realisation that we actually don’t need that many clothes has been an eye-opener to me. (Desperate need of a haircut ‘though!). Stay well. Reply Alyson Walsh says: January 28, 2021 at 4:38 pm Thanks, Bev. Very much in need of a haircut, too. I was booked in before Christmas but then we went into Lockdown 2.0. And I have two vintage faux fur coats from the 1950s- 60s that are indestructible and will last forever. Hope you’re feeling better!

Reply Dawn says: January 31, 2021 at 2:58 pm Fabulous young designer and I hope to now buy from her. It’s been a bit of a dilemma for me as on the one hand lockdown has shone the light on my excessive wardrobe but I’ve also bought a few more things from a local boutique as they are struggling big time. I firmly believe we will see a welcome rationalisation of the number of competing mass production stores and hope our smaller talented businesses get the opportunity to shine again Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyPlease be respectful and kind.
