As I look out the window seeing a blanket of snow covering the ground, with temperatures dipping into the teens later this week, I think it’s safe to say coat season is officially here! With that said, now seems like a fitting time to share a little coat comparison featuring my go-to mid-weight coats — the Cardiff from Only Child Clothing and the Lorena from Two Fold Clothing.
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.
