We all know the feeling of buying something on sale - convinced it's a real bargain, while believing you'll use this beautiful little piece of fabric to eternity. A couple of months later it is tucked somewhere in your closet with it's label still on. It may be a really cool item, but the problem is you can never find the right occasion to wear it. This is exactly why I think it's worth it to spend some extra money on basic quality clothes that you know are going to last longer than one season. If you're like me, and your problem is that you can't afford to "waste" your money on expensive clothes, just think twice before you buy something you don't need in the first place. But more importantly; another negative aspect of buying cheap clothes is how little the people who actually produces the garments earn. Just think about it; if you can buy a sweater for $20, how much is left for the workers? Not enough I guess.
