As of today it has been confirmed:
My brain is fighting with itself right now. Crazy shopper that racked up a mountain of credit card debt in the 1st half of my 20's (almost gone phew!!), is screaming YEAH YEAH YEAH!! H&M!! The more mature half that has spent most of the 2nd half of my 20's paying off my debt, and working my ass off sewing clothes says BOO!
This year one of my resolutions was to be more mindful of practicing what I preach. It's kind of pointless for me to bust my ass making things locally and then turn around buy cheap shit at Forever21, Target, ect.
So I'm going with the "no can has" on this. I deemed 2010 the year of No Can Has personally for many reasons. So I'm not setting foot inside the H&M. Instead I will be a conscientious consumer. I will spend my money locally and on the 5% of apparel that is actually made in the United States.
That being said, shop local. Look inside your labels. Know where your things are coming from, how they were made and who is making them.
