Friday Reblog: What’s Wrong with “The Look for Less”

Alison Gary over at Wardrobe Oxygen posted this week about why she doesn’t do “The Look for Less” features on her blog—i.e., taking an outfit that’s on the pricier side and finding low-cost versions of all the pieces involved.  She goes into quality vs. quantity and the differences between higher end and cheap clothing that can make quality stuff worth buying, particularly manufacturing practices that drop the price but significantly affect quality.

Happy Friday, Thrifters!
