Hi friends! I’ve recently started sharing a few sewing tutorials over on the YouTube channel, and I thought I’d start to post them here on the blog as well. Several of you have expressed interest in learning how to sew or in getting back into making your own clothes, so I hope you find these videos helpful and inspiring! Today’s project? A pleated midi skirt! This particular skirt was inspired by one I saw at Club Monaco a while back, and I love how it turned out. There is no pattern required, and it would be a great beginning project.
As much as I’m looking forward to the fall season, this year I can actually say that I will miss summer clothes! Usually I’m a fall and winter kind of girl in the wardrobe department, but this summer I was able to put together outfits I loved and learn a bit more about my personal style in the warmer months. Today I thought it would be fun to look back and round up my most worn pieces of the summer season in a video. I have five articles of clothing to share with you with a few accessories thrown in for good measure!
1 Piece, 4 Outfits
Hi friends, and happy Friday! I recently thrifted this little blush kimono style jacket, and I’ve been wearing it all the time! It’s been so much fun to style this piece in different way, so I thought I would put together a little lookbook of my favorite outfits featuring it. I love how it adds a little something extra to my outfits, and can easily be dressed up or down. One of my favorite things about thrifting are the little unique layers you can find. They make me more creative in putting together my outfits which is always a good thing in my book! Watch the video below to see the outfits, and read on to the end of the post to find links to anything currently available!
If you have been a reader of Chic Éthique for a while, you will know that I love thrift shopping for my wardrobe. It’s an economical way to fill out a wardrobe while being conscious of the environment, ethics, and charitable causes all at once. Growing up, my mother shopped for me at thrift shops and garage sales, and as a teenager, I didn’t like wearing thrifted things or visiting thrift stores. As I learned more about the fashion industry, however, I fell in love with it, and was so grateful to my mom for showing me how it was done, even if I didn’t appreciate it at the time. I often get asked if I have any advice for thrifting, so today I’m sharing five thrifting tips. Find them below in both written and video forms, and let’s get thrifting!
I love YouTube. One of my favorite ways to chill out after work is to make a good cup of tea or coffee, and sit down to catch up on my favorite channels. When I first started to get into the YouTube world, most of the channels I watched focused primarily on makeup and skincare, but over the past couple of years, I’ve come to love channels that focus on personal style. I love the creativity that goes into each video, and I always walk away with inspiration for new ways to wear the items in my closet. Since fashion channels are a little more difficult to come across, today I’m rounding up my four current favorites.
