Colleen McLoughlin Jets to NY for Wedding Dress
Wow, what must it be like to be rich and famous? I guess we can only get a glimpse by reading the tabloids at the life that WAGS such as Colleen McLoughlin lead. When we are living in a world so obsessed about the environment, don’t you think that it’s just a little but OTT just to jet off from the UK to NY to buy a wedding dress?
Apparetnly Colleen McLoughlin has been on a diet that has allowed her to drop a number of dress sizes and the wedding dress she already bought is too small. Oh well, I suppose she’s being paid eough money by OK! magazine to be able to afford to go jetting off to buy a new dress. But is this something that everyone should be doing? So many of us take the lead from such celebrities as Colleen McLoughlin and think it’s then OK so put so much carbon emissions into the air for the sake of a wedding.
At the end of the day, most people really don’t care about the environment, even if they do buy an Anya Hindmarch “I’m not a plastic bag” bag or buy the occasional Fair Trade chocolate. It’s just goes ot show the two-faced nature of the world and people like Colleen McLoughlin should be ashamed of themselves.
People do a lot more travelling now than ever and it used ot be that going abroad was a luxury that more people couldn’t afford. Now people in the UK seem to think that if they don’t go to Spain at least once a year they’re somehow deprived and even below the poverty line.
Although we know the financial cost of many things, I think most people have forgotten the value. For instance, Colleen McLoughlin’s range of clothing at Asda is so cheap that many would say you could buy it and wear it for just the season. When you’re bored of it you just throw it away.
What sort of example is this? What about the people who get paid peanuts just so we can look fashionable for hardly any money? What about the cost environmentally in producing and transporting these goods? I think it would be much better if we bought more expensive items that were better made and fairly traded. I know that fairly traded goods are supposed to be trendy but so is buying cheap clothes at Asda, Tesco and Primark.
