Pricey

It was too pricey
So I didn’t buy that dress
I bought a similar one
It costed way less

The quality was the same
The fabric comparable to touch
It really made me wonder
Why it wasn’t priced as much

I bolted to my phone
And hopped quickly online
Tried to compare the brands
Looking for a sign

That is when I first
Read about fast fashion
Realized that if I didn’t act
Sustainability was a namesake passion

I started shopping less
And preserving more
Made myself strong enough
To be untempted by any store

To upcycle and repurpose
I learned from my mother
Together we customized masterpieces
One after another

I took these values with me
All the way down the aisle
For bespoke minimalism
Definitely showed unparalleled style
