I’m not very beauty conscious and don’t care much about the clothing item I choose to wear. I wear whatever I like. So, here, I’d like to talk about a piece of clothing which I purchased with much excitement and ended up hating during my last visit to the National Capital of India, New Delhi. My friend and I went to the cheap-yet-stylish merch at Sarojini Nagar Market, where I was amazed to find almost everything, from cute tops to all-out dresses, suede bags, hipster shades, cool belts, satin stoles & scarves, and my favourite cartoon and anime printed tees at a one-stop-shop. Surprisingly, everything we liked was available at reasonable prices, so I purchased the cartoon-printed Donald Duck Crew-neck-t-shirt, which looked trendy, while my friend bought a lot of other stuff. Made entirely with cotton fabric, the t-shirt was best for casual wear. After using it for a day, I gave it away for a wash, and to my surprise, all the Donald duck prints in the t-shirt faded away with one detergent wash, leaving away only the fabric spots. I was highly disappointed with the quality of the fabric used in the t-shirt and with the tactics used by the seller, who brainwashed me to buy cheap clothes at low prices. After this incident, I refrained from buying anything from the street as it made me understand that some items may save money because they’re cheap, but their quality will always be poor.
