Sustainable Fashion

This entire week I have been feeling really inspired about fashion after seeing the Dior exhibit at the art museum in Denver on Sunday!

The week has been crazy busy and I have felt like I have not been as productive as I should be, but I still wanted to take a little time to write about sustainable fashion and brands that I love.

Fast fashion is described by Investopedia as, "inexpensive designs that move quickly from the catwalk to stores to meet new trends"

From <https://www.thegoodtrade.com/features/what-is-fast-fashion>

This is not only harmful for our environment, but ultimately ends up costing us more. Instead of partaking in fast fashion I have been finding ways to shop sustainably.

One of my favorite things to do is to go to thrift stores to shop. I recently went to the Buffalo Exchange here in CO to look around and I found the coolest pair of orange vans! I also frequent a lot of local thrift stores in the Fort Collins area to find furniture, clothes, and often jars!

When I was looking into sustainable fashion I also found the Swap Society where you join and send in clothes and get new clothes in return! Seems super easy and super cool-- I am going to send in some clothes that my sister and I have. The link is www.swapsociety.co Aside from re-purposing clothes through the use of thrift stores there are a lot of sustainable brands out there who create awesome clothes!

Disclaimer: Sustainable has many definitions and practices, the businesses I feature in this post either use sustainable materials and/or have sustainable and ethical business practices.

Girlfriend I found this brand about a year ago and splurged on some athletic wear after the holidays and I am so glad I did! They make their products from plastic water bottles and come in the cutest colors. I ordered some slate grey leggings, a pink colored pair, and a teal sports bra! I am so impressed with the quality, the fit, and the style. They are so comfy and such good material. Absolutely worth the price especially since they are a company with such amazing values! www.girlfriend.com

This is the only other sustainable brand that I have tried so far but I have a list of some I have been wanting to try and I posted the links below!
