Addressing the Earth: Worn Once

 How many items in my closet that have either never been worn, or were worn only once?  You know what I am talking about! The dress for a special occasion (wedding, prom, party, etc.) or the pants that were a great price, but maybe a smidge too small ("I will lose weight").  Some of my forgotten clothes were an impulse buy when I needed cheering up. We all have at least one piece that we didn't really need to purchase, right?

This dress is a reminder that the fashion industry wants us to keep buying, and maybe we need to slow down and think about what these mindless purchases do to our environment. 

The red dress was a $2.00 purchase from a local thrift shop. The black background was created from a Homecoming dress "worn once" by my daughter.
