a club at my school is doing a clothing drive for a women's shelter. I was thinking about donating some stuff but wasn't sure. but I'm in charge of taking the bag to the shelter. then my sister's friend (who goes to another school but heard about the drive) said she was going to donate a whole garbage bag full of clothes. this girl wears the same size as me and she wears only designer clothes. that means she'll be giving me a huge bag full of designer clothes that are my size. would it be awful of me to take anything from her bag I think is cute if I replace it with something from my closet? then I wouldn't be stealing, just substituting, right?
also I've volunteered at this shelter before and I haven't seen one woman who would fit into a size 2, which is the size of me and that girl.

right and wrong is subjective but in my opinion its a pretty sh*tty thing to do.
i guess the only way of getting around this, for me, would be if you replaced each item you take with something of your own. if you see a designer shirt that you like and you decide to take it, then put your own shirt in the donation bin. if you take 5 shirts, put 5 of your own shirts in there. you get the idea.
youre still taking away from someone elses generosity and their gift to people who can't afford things but as long as you put your own things in their in equal amounts and good quality, then its not as f***ed up as you taking it and not putting anything back in.
i still wouldn't do it though. at least I don't think I would lol
designer clothes don't really impress me by the name, even though the clothes look better sometimes. they tend to exploit workers in impoverished countries so meh. to each is own though. when you look at it in the objective perspective, there's already so much "wrong" that has been done in relation to those clothes. its a never ending cycle though. blah.0
