Fashion Revolution: #HAULTERNATIVE


his past weekend, my friend Addie and I hosted our own Fashion Revolution event. To sum things up, it’s a movement dedicated to exposing dangerous working conditions and the large amount of waste produced in the fashion industry. On April 24th, 2013, the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This left 1134 dead and 2500 others wounded. This sparked the start of Fashion Revolution. People wanted to challenge clothing distributors to take an active part in facilitating better care of the individuals who make the clothes that we wear everyday.

OOTD: Friday Floral and Denim

OOTD: Spring in the Winter


As promised, I’m posting my OOTDs again on my personal blog. I apologize for the gap in these fashion posts. I’ve been busy working on my company plans and website but I don’t want to let my recording of my thrifted fashion goals go astray. My top was one of the items I snagged when…

2015 in Review


We are a few days away from closing out 2015. Seems like it was only a few months ago that I was making affirmations for 2015. Lots of great things happened this year, while there were bumps along the way, and I figured that now is as good a time as any to look back…
