Somebody pinch me! Is this really happening?! If you’ve been reading my blog for very long then you know I’m passionate about two things:
Having the time of your life with clothes on a budget (the audacity to enjoy yourself!)
And ethically made clothes (because all humans deserve to be treated fairly!)
These two passions are often in direct opposition with one another, as ethically made clothing tends to be super plain (not my usual colorful style) AND super expensive! So I was beyond excited when Katie, the founder of Elegantees, asked if I would design a spring/summer clothing collection to try to fill this hole in the market. Today’s post features a top that has not just one but THREE ruffles on the sleeve, is super soft, and only $44 - PLUS it was handmade by survivors of sex-trafficking in Nepal, who were paid fair wages. Yes, I think I have died and gone to heaven, officially. You can pre-order this top now, and I’ll be sharing more styles over the next month as the collection officially launches in May! xoxo, J.
Top: Eden & Ivy, $44 (fair trade)
Jeans: Levi’s/Amazon, $59 (same, same)
Shoes: JustFab, $30 (similar, similar)
Necklace: NM Last Call, $21 (similar, similar, similar)
Purse: H&M, $25 (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Approx. dates: Jeans, necklace are last year. Purse, shoes are recent. Top is new.
