Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Cline
Are you “Overdressed?”
New York writer Elizabeth Cline routinely shopped trendy discount stores such as H&M and Forever 21, and the big box discounters: Target and Walmart. She purchased a new article of clothing at least once a week. After losing her job, she was forced to confront her spending habits. She then realized her clothes habit was way over the top. This book explores our obsession with fashion, particularly cheap clothing, and asks why we are willing to put up with poor quality and what these throwaway duds are doing to our society and to our environment.
