Handbags are some of the primary investment pieces in my wardrobe. The work that goes into creating one is taxing and meticulous, often making them more expensive than other items I purchase. While I’m not the type to run out and buy a new bag each season, I am slowly collecting an assortment that serve me well and will last for years. Quality over quantity really rings true. One thing I have discovered as I have researched ethical handbag options is that fair production does not always cost as much as I would expect, and traditional manufacturing of designer bags is sometimes inflated. A high-quality ethically made bag does not need to cost a month’s rent. Today I’m rounding up some of my favorite bags from a mixture of vegan and non-vegan brands. If you are looking to add a classic bag to your wardrobe, I hope you find this post helpful.
Boots Made for Walking
Come October, you’ll usually find me in a pair of well loved ankle boots. I love how versatile they are, and the slight polish they lend to even the most laid-back of looks. When I first began to explore ethical fashion, I struggled to find shoes and boots that were what I wanted, but as time has passed, the options have increased. Today I’m sharing my favorite ankle boots on the market this autumn to give you some beautiful mindful options, and hopefully spare you the endless Google trail I went on a couple of years ago. Get ready to stomp through the autumn leaves! Here’s the footwear for the job.

Today I’m excited to kick off a series of guest posts exploring different perspectives on wardrobe essentials. Since we each have different styles, climates, and occasions to dress for, there is so much we can learn from other women’s wardrobes, and over the next five weeks we will be getting to peek into a few of my favorites. Our first guest poster is one of my favorite slow fashion Instagramers, Aléna Tran. I know you will love reading her thoughts, seeing her amazing style, and checking out her beautiful and inspiring Instagram account.
Happy Monday friends! I’m starting to plan for my fall capsule wardrobe, even though the weather has gone back up to summer-esque proportions this week. I recently pulled all of my autumn clothing out of storage, and began to evaluate what I wanted to keep, get rid of, and purchase for the new season. Unfortunately a few of my pieces were attacked by some moths with expensive taste, so I’m anticipating having to replace a few more pieces than usual. While I’ll be thrifting and sewing several items, I also want to purchase from a few ethical brands this fall, both so that I can try them out, and so I can share my experiences with you. Here are some of the pieces I’m eyeing for autumn!
This week I’ve been pulling out my spring and summer clothes. It’s always so fun to see pieces from the past with the fresh eyes of a new year, and it definitely helps to inspire fun new outfit combinations. As I’ve been assessing what I have currently, I’ve also been taking note of what I would like to add to my closet for the spring season. These items range from updates of old favorites to more trend led items, and I have to confess; as much as I love a streamlined wardrobe, shopping for a new season is pretty darn fun.
