i’ve chatted a bit about ethical fashion on here before. it’s something for the majority of my life, i never thought about. but, once i started thinking about it, it became really hard to stop. like, thinking about a child, only a few years older (or not even) than my son, making clothes in a sweatshop, it’s heartbreaking. even still, it took me a while to get used to the idea that good quality, sustainable garments, cost more. i started following @thegarmentlife a few years ago, and it’s such an amazing resource. most of the time it seems like everyone on instagram is trying to sell you something, and while @thegarmentlife does receive a portion of each sale during their pop-up sales, a) they are transparent about it, and b) they’re not pushy. if you don’t want it or need it or can’t afford, then don’t buy it!
BUT if you do have gaps in your wardrobe and are looking for responsibly made garments, this is the place to be. i’ve made several purchases over the last year, and they are the things i wear again and again and again (and reluctantly put in the wash). this travel pop-up, i WANT everything, but what i’m getting: a bathing suit, and an oversized boyfriend shirt - both have been on my list for ages.
although the dressy sweatpants and boxy tee’s and striped shirts and clogs and everything really are giving me all the heart eyes… i don’t need them. so i’m saying no and that feels good too! anyway, if you want to participate in this pop-up sale (ends today), use the code COMMUNITY10 for 10% off any of the featured pieces.
