Hello lovebirds,

I try to be conscious about the way I shop. Oh boy, it's not easy. Especially since we live in a world where fast fashion is everywhere. No one seems to care about Ethic. The fashion industry is making millions with poor working conditions. Most of the time, there are no disclosure, no official statement. Every bad thing is kept under control.

Fashion has always been a big part of my life. When I was a kid, I would dress up and pretend to be in a fashion show almost every weekend. I love fashion. I love the power of fashion. However, I think it's important to be conscious of how we shop. I don't mean for you to stop shopping in Primark/Zara/H&M because they can produce cheap and affordable clothes. We all have different budgets and priorities.

We have all been there. Letting the society decide for us what to wear and who to be.

I'll simply ask you to consider changing your consumption habits. Buying less. Making it count. Looking for Ethic shops. Looking for quality over quantity. Supporting local - or simply smaller companies - over big groups of the fashion industry. To not throw away clothes - and money - or buy things you will never wear - just in case.

Whenever I'm shopping, I always ask myself the following questions: " do I really need it? Where was it made? What group owns this fashion clothing store? Do I see myself wearing this for years to come?"

Whenever I can, I buy stuff from local artists, vintage or members of the Ethical Trading Initiative shops. If you have not watched it or are not aware of the True Cost of Fashion. I think you should have a look on their website & movie.

On that note, I have gathered a few unique items from my favourite place to shop: Etsy. You don't have to break the bank to be careful about where to shop.

I prefer to invest in key pieces than to have a big closet filled with cheap and trendy clothes. What about you?

I hope you'll be inspired. Thank you for reading and I'll see you soon ♥ x
