black and white day three

dress - 12x12
shoes - laredoute

since reading about forever21's practices in radar
magazine and also through the documentary made in
la i haven't shopped there since. i almost feel
slightly ashamed now of the pieces i do have though
i do like them and enjoy wearing them. maybe not so
much ashamed really, but just that i feel like i need
to wear a disclaimer along with them. i guess it's just
that i don't want to feel like i'm promoting their
company or driving more business their way by listing
where i got this or that from when it's something i bought
before i'd become more aware of their practices and before
i'd started making an effort to become a more conscious
consumer. does anyone else feel this way about their
pre-enlightenment clothing?
