Sustainable and ethical fashion is a narrow yet growing market, but something that is often left out of the sustainable fashion conversation is plus sizing. Many small ethical brands claim that accommodating sizes beyond XL or 12 is often too costly for them, which creates the same issue for plus sized customers in the sustainable fashion realm as it does with fast fashion: very few options.Read More

Over the last year, I’ve become very careful about where I buy new clothes. I’ve done a lot of research into clothing companies to make sure they have ethical practices, but with the large amount of greenwashing (when a company pretends to be more eco-friendly than it is) present in the fashion industry, it can be hard to trust a company’s website. A few months ago, I found out about the app Good On You, which has totally changed the game for me. Good On You helps me learn more about brands I like to shop (or used to, since I have been mostly avoiding buy clothes brand-new for the last 9 months) and discover new ethical fashion brands.Read More

There are so many talented, incredible artists out in the universe that it’s hard to know them all. From craft shows to Etsy shops, I’m always discovering new people who have an indescribable amount of talent. Most of these artists sell art prints and/or enamel pins, which are great gifts for literally everyone, as well as other goods like tote bags, clothing, stickers and more.Read More
Confession time: I love to shop. I spend more money than I probably should and my spending habits could use some work. But one thing I am really good at is making the most of my spending with coupons, sales, deals and cash back. The best way to stay on track of deals and cash back for me is with apps and browser plugins! I do about half of my shopping online, and between these three apps [Drop, Honey and Ebates], I feel like I save money or get cash back on almost all my purchases, from clothing to groceries.Read More
Black Friday and Cyber Whatever (I know it’s Monday, but it really goes on from Thanksgiving evening to the following Monday) are soul-sucking. These shopping “holidays” turn people into greedy monsters. In my mind, these days are cancelled. Over. Buh-bye.Read More
Thrifting, while both trendy and affordable, is extremely time-consuming. Some people don’t want to spend the time going through endless Goodwill racks, some feel like they never strike gold at the thrift store and some say the thrift stores near them are far and few between. If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck, because there are others who have done all the hard work for you.Read More
I love thrifting. I’ve worn thrifted pieces to major events, like my college graduation and my best friend’s father’s wedding. More than half of my closet is thrifted, and I’m trying to get it to 80-100% thrifted in the near future. Some of my favorite items of clothing are the ones I had to dig for in a secondhand or consignment store.
In this post, I’m going to talk about how I thrift, my tips and tricks, and what I wish I knew starting out, as well as answer some questions I got on Instagram with the help of a few friends!Read More
