How to Shop Consciously and Create a Better World

Posted by Jill Chivers in Shopping Strategies

The ‘Sex & The City’ days of assembling a huge wardrobe full of “must have” “bang on trend” items you barely wear are fast drawing to a close.   More and more of us feel an imperative to shop smart and with heart, whilst also living stylishly.

We want to live well and know that our consumption choices aren’t  breaking the bank or hurting the earth.  And shopping constantly or unconsciously doesn’t fit into that picture.

Whilst the spirit is willing, and often the flesh as well, what is often missing is a set of guidelines, some inspiration and information points, on how to go about conscious shopping.  What can you do? Where do you start?

Approached in the right way, you can create and enjoy a wonderful – and working – wardrobe that reflects who you are (your unique and stylish self) and makes you feel good about everything you purchase and currently own.

You can experience a sense of lightness and even joy when you get dressed every day, with a wardrobe that has been built on a foundation of consciousness.

And most importantly, you can feel GREAT about the shopping that you do decide to do.

And that’s what we’re all about here – Inspiring you to think differently about the shopping you do and the items you already own….  Challenging you to make better use of what you already have… Providing you specific support and action items to take you there…. and Motivating you to become more conscious in your shopping and more creative in your everyday choices.

 

I’ve been keeping you up to date in the last few weeks with the renovations on the Mini Course, and now I’m super excited to tell you that the new & improved Conscious Clothes Shopping 6 Week Mini Course is open for business!

      I hate that show so much for the sole reason that it made being ‘young and fashionable’ almost mandatory. Nevermind that in reality a freelance writer could NOT live by herself in NYC and amass $40,000 worth of shoes – yet it felt like overnight millions of women my age aspired to making that damn lifestyle a reality (I’m now 39). I still feel uncomfortable around women with that attitude, as though choosing to NOT being a voracious consumer is suspect and unsavoury. Isn’t feminism about *choice*?

      Anyway, thank you for letting me rant – and keep up the great work! I’ve already learned so much about *myself* from reading your blog today.

        Yes peer pressure, even if it is generated from a television show, is an insidious thing isn’t it? I agree that it is all about personal choice, and yet sometimes that can seem difficult to locate and act on. Which is why women who have a clear sense of themselves and how that is expressed through their individual clothing choices are so inspiring to me.
