I truly believe that ethical and sustainable fashion needs to be led by BIPOC creators because labor and environmental issues affect BIPOC and low-income communities the most. Supporting BIPOC-owned brands is one way to help the space become more inclusive.

Check out my fall 2019 roundup of ethical and sustainable favorites, including the most recent addition to my self-care practice, a film that’s bound to be an instant classic, and how I’m staying warm and cozy this season (think: knitting and candles!).
As soon as the temperature dips below 70 degrees Fahrenheit, my knitting needles magically find themselves in my hands. I know, neat trick.
I’ll be listing Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales for ethical and sustainable brands here. Bookmark this page and check back throughout the weekend for updated sales.
The cooler months are finally here, and what better way to spend them than cozied up in a soft sustainable sweater? Or…ethically made cashmere sweatpants?
Um, hi, I know summer for most of the northern hemisphere is long gone – but it’s the hottest time of year here in the Bay Area so I’m gonna tell myself that to excuse how late this favorites post is!
No matter what trend forecasts say, there’s always one clothing item that will remain a wardrobe staple: the classic white tee. It’s the most basic of building blocks for so many outfits, which makes a white T-shirt a worthy investment.
It’s a hot girl summer – and unfortunately, that also means hot, sweaty nights (and not in a sexy way).
When I lived in Seattle, I had a very warm, down-filled comforter, which was perfect for Seattle’s cold six-month-long winters. But once I moved to California in June, that comforter made my bed into a sweaty death trap!
Thankfully, Buffy offered to send me their new temperature-regulating Breeze comforter to review.
As I’ve said many times before, the main reason I started exploring ethical and sustainable fashion was because I see it as a feminist issue. Most garment workers are women, so supporting ethical labor practices in the fashion industry is an extension of my own values.
So when ROUND + SQUARE, a sustainable and ethical brand dedicated to gender equality, reached out to me, the collaboration felt like the perfect fit for my blog!
I haven’t posted just an #ootd on this blog since the very early days, but this shoot was too good to keep to myself. Enjoy this summer ethical #ootd and a bunch of my word-vomited feelings (no better way to say farewell to Gemini season)!
