Beyond excited to release this short Instagram film that my favorite photographer @drewfoto shot for us while on location at our Holiday Lookbook shoot: Saltwater Vagabond. (Full lookbook is live on our site) // Amazing music is by our good buds @streetsoflaredo. Make sure to check out them out. Every song makes me want to hop in the van and hit the road in search of adventure. We've had the joy of seeing them in San Diego and San Francisco. // Nothing makes me happier than collaborating with other creatives who I feel resonate with our own style. The beauty in front of the lens is @enna_nutschell. A huge thank you to everyone involved. #mermaidbyhandjewelry #drewfoto #saltwatervagabond #streetsoflaredo #lifestylefilm

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 🙂
