Five Fashion Finds

Five Fashion Finds

Happy Friday!  Boy, this has been a LONG one, mom.  

Quick!  Get a load of this cool clothing stuff!

1.  All about Karla Welch, the stylist (I’d never heard of who’s) responsible for ALL the celeb style you love, i.e. Ruth Negga, Sarah Paulson, Bush Phillips, “Biebs”- fascinating piece on how she got her start in fashion and how she maintains a devoted clientele.

2.  Eventhough I’m on a no-new-clothes-but-all-the-old-clothes cleanse (thanks Etsy and Poshmark), I’m loving this new platform and app for sustainable fashion.  Good on You lets you shop trendy stuff and search your favorite brands to see how they rate in a number of ethical categories.   Download here.

3.  It’s taken me almost a year (of not teaching and being a SAHM) but I think I had to quit my job to find my personal style”.  More on this later.

4.  Theresa and Corinna Williams started Celsious, a sustainable laundromat in New York (a tad “niche,” but they’re starting a movement, mom!), to make weekly laundry days a bit more enjoyable.  It’s beautiful, they’re beautiful... I can’t get enough.

5. New Baggu. Love it all but use these for everything. 

 

That about does it!  

But what you been thinking about style-wise?  You into this sustainable stuff?  Where are you getting your goodies?

Also, I’m headed to warmer weather next week!  May be a little light on the posting!  

Enjoy your weekend, Mom!!

 

Stay Cool,
