This whole dressing sustainably thing really is easy. That's the easiest part of my life nowadays! Once I made the decision to stop purchasing at non-sustainable retailers, my closet pared itself down to something manageable yet incredibly fun. I know, this black and white minimalist look doesn't really scream "fun," but these are just the basics. Each of these items gets a lot of wear, especially since moving to NY (mostly because I am living out of a suitcase!).
Now that I've overcome the difficulties of having an inspirational and sustainable wardrobe, I've got the brain space to think about my real issues in life. Do I want to go vegan? (yes, I think so) How do I become a successful blogger? (I don't know, do you?) What do my readers want to read more of? (Really, can you tell me?) How am I going to make money in NY? (I'm going to apply for jobs I want, duh.)
Truly, though, I would love to know what you think of my blog so far! What do you like, what do you hate? What would you like to see more of? Do you want me to write more, or do you only care about photos? What brands would you like me to investigate? I'm burning with curiosity! I want to say thank you to all of you for being amazing friends and loyal readers. I hope that you will continue to come back and that you will enjoy the changes that are coming!
What I'm Wearing:
- Jacket - Vintage (I bought it for $3 at the Alamo Square Flea Market. Score!)
- Pocket tank - Everlane (link is to a similar tank, my version is discontinued)
- Skirt - Vintage
- Booties - Clarks (not exactly a sustainable brand, but I bought these prior to my switch)
- Earrings - A gift from a lovely friend
- Necklace - A family heirloom
- Bag - Vintage Liz Claiborne (also, a gift from another lovely friend)
See? It's easy to dress sustainably when you have great friends, fashionable grandmothers and a willingness to hunt through every rack/booth at the thrift store/flea market. I couldn't imagine a better way to spend my weekend!
