I was blessed enough to not have to take on any student loans during my undergraduate career. I was awarded with a scholarship that covered everything except for my meal plan my freshman year; I knew that I had to keep this all four years or I wouldn’t be at Howard. My mom told me I needed to go to a college that covered all my expenses. Thankfully, I loved Howard and it was that one that was willing to throw me around $16,000 each semester.

‘FAST FASHION’ IS NOT A POSITIVE TERM.
I’ve noticed that people are starting to refer to fast fashion as if it’s a good thing and I’m not sure why.
Companies are constantly pushing out cheap, quick products. As a consumer, that means two things:
- You’re constantly encouraged to buy more products throughout the year; you’re constantly spending money and tempted to throw out older/off-trend clothing.
- You’re falling for it.
This Fashionista article was fairly intriguing. Brands are starting to capitalize on the fact that people always want to wear what’s trendy; it’s a bonus if it’s cheap.
