How to dream fearlessly & other lessons I’ve learned from one year of blogging

How to dream fearlessly & other lessons I’ve learned from one year of blogging

Restitchstance turns one year old on March 26, 2018!

It’s been quite the ride, and I’ve learned so much about sustainable and ethical fashion, blogging, and myself along the way. Here are a few of the lessons I’ve learned.

Allbirds wool runners vs. wool loungers comparison (review)

Allbirds wool runners vs. wool loungers comparison (review)

Alright, I’ll admit it. I’ve only been working in tech full-time for six months…and I’ve already succumbed to the stereotypical norm-core fashion of startup life.

Maybe I didn’t so much “succumb” as embrace my inner grandma (for god’s sake, I wear fluffy slippers at work), but in any case, I now own not one, but two pairs of Allbirds. I mean, I’m twinning with half of Seattle’s tech industry whenever I wear them, but that’s okay because they’re super cute, freakishly comfortable, and made of natural materials that are less harmful for the environment than typical sneakers.

I own the Allbirds wool runners in Tuke Dusk (top) and the wool loungers (bottom) in one of last year’s limited edition colors, grey with a pink sole. I’ve had the loungers for around nine months and just bought the runners within the past month.

Read on to see how they compare!

Why I’m sick of sustainable and ethical fashion’s exclusionary marketing (ft. Automic Gold)

Sustainable and ethical fashion’s exclusionary marketing makes conscious fashion seem elitist, when we should be trying to make it more accessible for all folks. If sustainable and ethical brands truly want to be part of a movement and not just ride the greenwashing wave for capitalistic gains, they need to do their part to make the movement more welcoming and accessible.

That’s why I’m excited to introduce you to Automic Gold, a brand with a refreshing and honest approach to marketing! They believe that companies should take responsibility for the kinds of images they create, especially when those images can have such a powerful impact.
