Every wondered where your clothes were made? Or who made them? Those are the kinds of questions Awear is urging consumers will start asking. I’m sure by now you have heard about the Bangladesh factory collapse…If not, please enlighten yourself here (http://www.forbes.com/sites/clareoconnor/2014/04/26/these-retailers-involved-in-bangladesh-factory-disaster-have-yet-to-compensate-victims/)and ask yourself, is buying that cute, uber cheap dress REALLY worth someone else’s safety, possibly their life…

Some tips to becoming more Awear when purchasing clothing:

1. purchase USA made

2. shop at thrift stores

3. purchase fairtrade items

4. eco friendly, sustainability, or vegan

5. check out more on the Awear website at http://www.awear2014.com and see how YOU can join this amazing movement 🙂

It’s been a while, but  I have decided to dive into the personal outfit posts again…Besides The Be Kind Project tees (which you can shop here) this Spell tee has got to be my new favorite! Super comfy and I’m obsessed with the graphics and the vintage feel. And of course it reminds me of my favorite Stones song…The turquoise ring is vintage…I found this little gem in a thrift store back in Delaware. Mermaid and shell ring is by Echo of The Dreamer, a designer that has been a huge inspiration to me. Buddha necklace is an oldie but goodie by the one and only Vanessa Mooney. Turquoise necklace was a gift from my boyfriend’s mother from a swap meet in Arizona! I love how jewelry always has story behind it. After a day of running errands, we made it to the beach just in time to watch the beautiful sunset. Thank you mother nature!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Spell and The Gypsy Collective’s new look is getting me so excited for our roadtrip to Arizona to spend time with my boyfriend’s family for Thanksgiving. Each lookbook they create is nothing short of inspiring. Spell is a company that has greatly motivated and helped me tune into my own creative side over past few years and start my jewelry business. I always love how they style their pieces, mixing vintage with new, dressier pieces with comfy, worn in tees. Each piece in their new Spring/summer ’14 collection is just stunning.
