    Why I support Fair Fashion | Fashion Revolution Week

    I made a decision two and a half years ago: I decided against fast fashion and for conscious consumerism. Today I want to share with you what this decision has meant for me in celebration of Fashion Revolution Day. I’ve also summed up some cool events globally and will be linking other articles about this topic by the Fair Fashion Squad!

     

    My H&M Wardrobe

    A couple of years ago I loved the idea to own a whole H&M as my closet. It would be great to have something new to sport every morning and to always be wearing the latest trends, right? But after I had blogged about conventional fashion for over three years here on at least I was done. My closet was full of polyester rags, still I never found the right thing to wear and I had the constant feeling to need more to be part of the fashionistas.

    A full closet but nothing to wear

    I had heard about alternatives but didn’t know exactly where to get them and if they actually looked okay. And of course there was the money question: How in the world would I be able to afford this? This is how my first fair fashion post appeared here over two years ago – to my surprise it was actually possible to buy good looking ethical fashion and it wasn’t even that expensive.

    It didn’t stop with fashion at this point. I started to wonder about my whole lifestyle. Why am I using a straw? Do I need vegetables that have been around the world? Why am I buying a plastic container that holds my soap every month just to trash it afterwards? There’s still many people who laugh at me for this but there must be quite as many that I have infected with my thoughts (even if most of them won’t admit ;)).

    In the spirit of Fashion Revolution Day I’ll be digging a little deeper today and will explain why supporting fair fashion and changing your consumption behaviour is worth it – and why you should advocate it in front of others.  Continue reading…

    10×10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge: Outfit #9

    This post is part of my 10×10 spring challenge. Read more about it here.

    To be honest: We only have 6°C here in Berlin today – I can only dream about wearing a look like this. Nevertheless I refuse to sport only warm knits in my spring(!!!) 10×10 challenge. Although that would have been a little more realistic. Let’s just say that my outfits are supposed to inspire getting dressed for the warmer weather that (hopefully) will arrive during the next few weeks.  Continue reading…

    10×10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge: Outfit #8

    This post is part of my 10×10 spring challenge. Read more about it here.

    It’s literally taken me ten seconds to pull this look: But only because I’ve been wearing it like this on a Sunday a couple of weeks ago und I l o v e d it! It looks very chic, leaves enough space for a good brunch session and still looks good at the museum afterwards (you might have noticed: that is exactly what this Sunday looked like ;)).  Continue reading…
