WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU STOP BUYING CLOTHING?

“I just don’t care about my looks anymore. Except when I go on a date.” “Ehm.. nothing, not really. I just keep wearing the same clothing.” “I feel relieved about no longer buying any more clothing. It’s a good alibi this experiment, it creates a context where I am not perceived as hysterical in doing so.” “It is quite Zen, I can now focus on things that are important for me.” “Since this experiment, I only look at advertisements professionally.” “I want to be worth looking at. And I feel that most when I’m wearing something new and unique, so I bought a skirt.” “It was really exciting starting this experiment, but now it just is what it is. I don’t care about my looks or about clothing anymore. I only address it professionally. I have actually just taken distance as a consumer, and because of that I stopped caring.” “I’m slowly going mad and there’s a whole list of things I’m going to buy. This just doesn’t feel natural.” “I can’t buy any clothing any more; even when I want to, it’s all just so ridiculous.” “I no longer want to buy any more junk. This experiment is starting to show the true value of clothing again.”
