Sustainably sourced fall must-have’s

shirtdress winter into spring

This sustainably sourced dress is priced well under $100, you can see my original post here. / Black dress pictured at bottom of post can be found here, original post here.

Humans use a lot of products. These products are often created using resources rather than recycled materials. In addition, many of the manufacturing processes used to create these products are detrimental to the environment. That’s why when I learned of a few brands working hard to create sustainable fashion, I was thrilled!

The shirtdress pictured above is still in my closet, and worn frequently. I photographed it for the blog when I was in New York for fashion week back in February. I love that it is still on store shelves, priced under $100, and sustainably sourced. One of the fallacies many people believe is that sustainable = expensive. This is not true! You can find sustainable products at inexpensive, fast fashion retailers such as H&M or TopShop, mid-market brands such as Eileen Fisher, and from luxury fashion houses based in Paris. You just need to know where to look!

Many retailers are starting to point out when their products are eco-conscious and/or sustainably sourced. This is great news for consumers as we try to navigate what to buy, and where to buy it.

So to make things easier, I found a few fabulous eco-chic items for fall, which I hope you will love! After all, most of them are surprisingly affordable, and they happen to be sustainably sourced. Love!

Summer 2019 sales and deals

August is here, and while it’s over ninety degrees outside, the retail industry is clearing their shelves in an attempt to sell you sweaters, puffy coats, and faux-fur lined booties.

Since August is the month the retail industry transitions their racks and shelves into the fall season, it’s the perfect time to snap up summer clothing and accessories at amazing prices; especially since you can wear these items right now!

You don’t have to be planning a trip to a tropical island to enjoy palm prints, and bold designs. These types of patterns are hot on the streets in both urban and suburban environments. So feel free to rock palm prints on city streets this summer season! Thankfully you can do so without breaking the bank.

This palm print kimono looks amazing over jeans and a tee. Pair it with flat slides or short cowgirl boots, and a leather lady bag; you’re perfect for summer into early fall!

These summer dresses look great on city streets with flip flop or strappy sandals. They are so versatile!

Here are a few of my favorite summer sales and deals around the web. Hope you find a fabulous deal on a piece you can love now!

Thanks for stopping by!
