Ethical Details: Dress - vintage; Cardigan - old

90s dresses have the miraculous quality of making you feel awesome and comfortable at the same time. 

On a personal level, this week has been quite successful. The thrift shop's annual toy sale is this weekend and I was freaking out a bit about the pre-sale workload, but I think everything will be ready! On a public level, this week has been challenging, but important. I struggle to know how to talk about racism and prejudice in my own country, but I know that staying out of it isn't right. We're screwed up. I'm screwed up. It's a matter of fact that people of color in this country are treated implicitly and explicitly as less than human all the freaking time. It's horrifying that so little has changed since slavery. It's devastating that black men keep dying. The reason is easy to discover: racism. But the solution will take a lot of work. It's up to all of us to be willing to engage with the issues and with the real people behind them and to stop excusing ourselves or opting out. It's up to us to hear people out and to make our voices heard. If you're white, it's important that you get involved, but don't get in the way. If you're black, know that I'm with you and I really want to support you and fight with you in a productive way, so please feel free to step in and let me know the best way to approach this. 

the moral wardrobe: '90s 'tude

nineties vintage grunge styleg2

I found these awesome, super heavy chunky wedge sandals while on a vintage shop replenishment trip this week and couldn't resist trying them on with a nineties top I bought on etsy.

The polar vortex has passed over us, but it's still pretty cold outside. I'm currently wearing two pairs of socks and two cardigans inside the house.

Ethical choices are bolded below. Retailers taking steps to become more ethical are bolded in gray.

  • Top - vintage via etsy

  • Cardigan - H&M

  • Pants - BDG

  • Shoes - vintage


This is an example of how to incorporate secondhand items into one's wardrobe. Vintage pieces in particular make quite a statement.
