Guess what? This transition into a more sustainable lifestyle has been rough. Sustainable fashion is expensive and hard to find. The first I do when I go on any online shop now is to look at their About Me page and their corporate & social responsibility page. If there’s nothing there, I simply close the page and find something else. I do this for all my partnerships and collaborations as well. I’m declining all partnerships that I don’t feel inspired or empowered by. I want this platform to influence each of you, so you can later empower others with the brands that have a meaning behind them.
And so I finally went thrifting. I walked into Goodwill, and I spotted this cute little 70’s inspired dress in the corner of my eye. Though it’s a bit too big on me, I bought it anyway. I take most of my clothes to a tailor anyway. This print reminds me of Emilio Pucci— a brand I have obsessed over for years because of my grandmother. And you know what? It was only $17.
How do you feel about sustainable fashion? Do you shop fast-fashion or are you trying to be more conscious about your shopping? I’m still having a tough time and would love to hear your thoughts and experience with it! Tagged below a few vintage pieces from Ebay, Etsy, and Emilio Pucci.
