In my efforts to make more ethical purchases, I've been discouraged by the hefty price tags accompanying many fair trade products. I mean, it makes sense, but I'm still a girl on a budget! It's also been a struggle to find ethically-made clothing that fits my personal aesthetic. As a result, I tend to buy a lot of my clothing at thrift stores and consignment shops, and occasionally I'll buy from mainstream retailers who are at least implementing some kind of social responsibility plan. However, as I find cute and affordable ethical brands, I want to be sharing them with you so that you can benefit from my research, if you so choose. All of the items pictured above are currently under $100!

P.S. If you know of any great ethical fashion brands, please do share!


Thanks for stopping by!

DIY : CROPPED SWEATER


This simple refashion is a great solution for when that favorite sweater/sweater dress gets a wee bit too short. Might as well make it look like you meant it to be that way all along, right? And then you can get a little more wear out of it before retiring it for good.

I'm not really into midriff-baring, but a cropped sweater can be a fun layering tool in your wardrobe because it allows you to play with interesting proportions. Want to learn how to make one of your own? Check out the tutorial below!
