Fall has officially arrived, and this gal couldn’t be more excited (though I’ll admit… I’m not quite ready for the looming winter)! To welcome the long awaited change in seasons, I thought it would be fun to kick off a new style series, called “A Seasonless Wardrobe.”
Slow fashion is ... well ... slow. What does this mean for us as consumers of slow fashion? For starters, it means that we don't have to feel pressured to keep up with the weekly " fashion trends." It means we actually have to stop and think about our purchases. And most importantly, it means we have to learn patience.
One of my favorite weekend activities since making the shift to slow fashion is ... you guessed it! Thrifting. Since starting my thrifting journey, I've managed to score some beautiful, high-quality pieces at incredible prices. And the best part? I'm giving these clothes a new, loving life ... and keeping them out of the landfill.
Exciting news... We're moving! I'm a purger of stuff by nature, so one part of the move I'm really looking forward to is the inevitable paring down of our belongings that will take place over the next couple of weeks; determining which items we actually love and use, and which items have simply been collecting dust over the years and are ready to be passed on to a new loving home.
Clothing made out of wood? You bet! Lyocell — commonly known as Tencel — is a cellulose-based fiber derived from dissolving wood pulp. A member of the Rayon family, this sustainable man-made fiber has a laundry list of benefits. For starters, lyocell is impeccably soft, breathable, lightweight, and you guessed it ... comfortable. It's safe to say this lovely fiber has quickly become one of my favorites.
