Fast Fashion or Slow Style? Most people think this choice is ostensibly, totally dependent on the state of your bank account. If you make $15/hr you should shop at H&M; if you make $1500/hr you should shop at Holts. Is it really this black and white? Rich or poor? Better or worse? Or has the consumer construct lead us to believe that affordability should guide all our consumerist consuming and has thus, carved out a gaping hole in the marketplace for the obeasts (obese beasts) like Walmart, H&M, Zara, and Target to squeeze their fat asses into. The question of affordability is then readily answered, over and over again, when you can walk into H&M and feel like a Queen because you are well aware that there isn’t one item in the entire store that you can’t afford. A.k.a. Field Day.
