- I loved Elizabeth Cline‘s article The History of a Cheap Dress over on Etsy. She highlights how in the past 60 years women’s clothing has changed so much as far as cost and quality.

Well, after reading Elizabeth’s article it totally makes sense to me now. Also, her and I share a birthday, so that’s awesome. AND, she’s going to be writing up more articles on having a “good closet” which will discuss what it means to buy ethically. I’m really intrigued.
