Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Cline
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book changed the entire way that I think about clothes. I was raised by a mother who refused to buy us clothes from the "trendy" stores and instead bought us high quality clothes and shoes that lasted. That has stayed with me, but I admit to having bought a dress or a top or a jacket here and there from Target, Zara and H&M. It convinced me that taking up sewing again is the right thing for me to do. I only give it four stars because the writing is a little inconsistent. But overall a good and important read.
