Fashion Before Food

Hey look, it's a new buzzword to describe women: fashiorexia! A recent study by My Celebrity Fashion (very scientific) found that 32% of women in the UK would "rather starve" and be able to afford nice clothes than eating well and going without new clothes and are thus dubbed "fashiorexias." Of those polled, 28% of the women, mostly 18-25, said that this "diet" kept their weight in check. So basically women are starving themselves to fit into clothes that they not only cannot realistically afford, but also cannot realistically fit into. Sounds healthy! But it isn't just young women who fall prey to overspending on clothes: 56% of women between the ages of 31-40 admitted to spending more on fashion than food. [Daily Mail]
