this article today in which Kelly Osbourne strongly disapproved of Kate Middleton for "recycling" her clothes which means to wear them more than once. Kelly rationalized that because Kate was royalty she shouldn't be so "thrifty" by re-wearing her clothes. Instead she should get a new "dress" everyday for the mere fact that she could and to compensate for all she's giving up by being in the spotlight.
Ok, everyone's entitled to their own opinion and I don't care for the drama this article stirs up but it definitely made me think. Even if I were royalty, would I want to have a dress for everyday of the year. That's 365 dresses! That number is insane!!! What's wrong with wearing your clothes more than once? Hey the average person does that. How could you ever establish and enjoy you favorite garments if you only wore them once? For me that takes the fun out of having a wardrobe. I know I repeatedly wear (and on the verge of wearing them out) clothes that I've sewn for myself. It's part of the fun for me. But that's just me. I could ask a thousand more questions on this subject but I don't care to devote the time. But I have to admit being scrutinized for re-wearing an garment is ridiculous. Trust me if those are the kinds of standards people hold famous people to then I'm glad I'm not in that spotlight.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Royalty should be held to a different standard?
