MUST READ: Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth Cline

In light of the recent Bangladesh garment factory building collapse where the death toll is now over 600, this book, Overdressed by Elizabeth Cline, is an important read. In a world where we care and know more about where our food comes from versus where our clothing comes from, this book is an eye-opener. Cline does a great job of tracing the origins of this country's now-disposable clothing obsession. It doesn't take much more to link that to tragedies such as the one in Bangladesh. It will make you think twice about that next clothing purchase.
