Here at BuyMeOnce we love timeless, durable clothing and we love capsule wardrobes. We also believe that nobody should have to sacrifice style for longevity.
Dressing in a way that does minimal damage to the planet can be difficult. Sometimes a sustainable alternative to our favourite product doesn’t exist yet, sometimes we’re tired and time-stretched and sometimes our budget simply cannot accommodate ideal-world ethics.
The average woman owns in excess of 20 pairs of shoes, with only a quarter of this collection (in most cases the comfortable and practical pairs) being worn regularly. It’s not just the thrill of the shop that leads us to purchase more than we need – a comfortable, durable and stylish shoe is the holy trinity of shoe design and finding a pair is one of life’s holy grails. So how do you go about buying fewer shoes, but buying the right shoes?
