fall favorites '14

fall favorites featuring mata traders, thredup, and everlane


I'm suddenly really into Dusty Rose, which is essentially mauve. I'm noticing it everywhere, but especially at the thrift shop, where we seem to get in another Dusty Rose item every day. The volunteers always ask me if we should save it for spring inventory, but I insist that it's totally in for fall. Am I making it up?

My closet is well packed with clothing, but I envision my alternate wardrobe with soft Everlane basic shirts paired with muted prints, cozy tights, and cognac loafers or boots.

I've hit this point in my fair trade journey where my style has had to change to suit the ethical options available to me. Things have gotten a bit more hippie and I don't mind, but I'm having a hard time even defining my personal style within the constraints. It's likely not normal to be so worried about it, but I'm learning that I'm an extreme perfectionist that has to have everything sorted out and defined.

  1. I have noticed the same thing with my wardrobe, and I like it. I've always dressed very feminine and sort of vintage-inspired, and I've had fun trying out new, more minimal fair trade styles. Dusty Rose is one of my favorite colors for any season!

    1. I do think minimal is really the way to go when it comes to having a more sustainable wardrobe. I'm sort of in crisis right now trying to understand who I am as a full blown adult in her late 20s rather than as a fresh-out-of-college girl.
