How Fashion And Self Care Go Hand In Hand

'Self care' has been a content buzzword for quite some time, our minds automatically picturing a face mask and bubble bath and a good book.

Style Psychology: Intentional Buying
In the year-ish that I haven't shopped fast fashion (Forever 21, SheIn, etc) I've noticed a shift in the way I shop. No more late night browses on the F21 website, clicking 'add to cart' so many times my eyes glaze over.
