It’s a Fashion Revolution #WhoMadeMyClothes

#WhoMadeMyClothes?addie 2

The fashion revolution is a movement to help you become conscious about the conditions in which folks create your clothes, and to provide them with fair wages so that they can live a good life.  I also like to throw in my thrifting and sustainable finds.  Why not just be good all the way around?  I chose this ensemble to share for the fashion revolution because I do know where half of it was made, and the other half was thrifted.  It is still beautiful and affordable.

On April 24, 2015 – Fashion Revolution Day (see the instagram @fash_rev and #fashrev), we are asking all companies, “Who made my clothes?”  Who makes your clothes at Zara, Wal Mart, Target (mmmhmm, you Lily Lovers haha =), Forever 21, etc.?  Are they paid fair wages?  Post a picture of your clothes today and ask, #whomademyclothes  Read More →

Buy less, choose well, make it last. This was a simple statement made by Vivienne Westwood – not in an effort to promote her fashion line, but to promote the agenda of the climate revolution.  It really is my philosophy, and for a similar reason. Read More →

Earth day is soon, so let’s start the week off right by honoring it with this DIY homemade carpet freshener.  All you need are these two ingredients:  Baking Soda and an Essential Oil (or blend of oils to create a fragrance of your choice).  I also purchased large sized glass jar with a perforated top from the Dollar Tree (like a parmesan or red pepper shaker – maybe you could repurpose one that you have sitting in your fridge?)

April 2015 Thrift Haul – Sun Dresses & More!

On my last minute neutral Easter dress quest, I found out that one of my local thrift stores would be having a 50% EVERYTHING IN THE STORE sale.  Yes, I yelled that.  I found this out the night before the sale that would start at 7 a.m. the next morning, so I stuck around to try on and photograph the items that I would like.  Now, I’m not a morning person, but somehow I managed to arrive at 710 am.  I quickly found all of the items that I tried on the previous day and wanted to purchase.  I also found some goodies for one of my best friend’s bundle of joy.  Check out my finds – I can’t wait to wear them and share how I style them with y’all!

old-world-new-diy-maxi-jumper

Spring is finally here and there are several items in our closets that we just kind of don’t want anymore.  I have already paid Goodwill a visit and dropped off the most random box ever (clothes, picture frames, flags…. random).  There were some things that I kind of didn’t want anymore, but I kind of didn’t want to get rid of.  To this dilemma I say, “DIY!” Read More →

Beginner’s Teacup Patio Garden

Begginner's-garden

I have a garden, y’all!!  Now, despite the history of my family – my Papa and Daddy were/are avid farmers and lovers of tractors – I am in no way a grower of things.  I plan to change that, though.  I’ve tried my hand at not killing plants before, but I hope to approach this with a more positive outlook from the start this time.  I want to help these babies grow, and most importantly, I want to eat them.  I can’t do that if they wilt away and die.  Therefore, I am sharing the journey with you all!   Read More →
