fair-fashion-ethical-madewell-clothes-beauty-shoesMade Well

One of the few stores in my area that I can walk into and find ethical fashion options at is Madewell. I love that Madewell does exclusive collaborations with various slow fashion brands, giving the brands exposure, and allowing me the chance to see and shop these beautiful items in person. In the last few months, they have really stepped up their game both with their Rivet & Thread made in the USA options, and their beautiful collaborations, even expanding into natural and cruelty free beauty products. No, this post isn’t sponsored, I simply hope it gives you some options for better choices, especially those of you who’s cities have limited brick and mortar stores like me!
