I've been thinking for a while about how to expand this blog beyond my clothing line. I produce on average ten styles a year, which simply doesn't provide much content for a blog. I love sharing a look behind the development process and sneak peeks, and will certainly continue to do so.
But, I want to share more than just my clothing line here. I want to share more about my personal attempts to be a more ethical and sustainable consumer. I'm very honest about the fact that I still shop a lot at JCrew because of their tall sizes, especially in tops. Over the past couple of years, I've pretty much eliminated all other fast fashion stores from my shopping list and even greatly reduced my spend at JCrew. But, I've been much slower to grow my list of ethical and sustainable brands. Sure, I wear my stuff, but I got into this business because I do love fashion, and I love to find unique but wearable pieces. And that desire is still there. Plus, I'm trying to be more conscious with respect to my home goods purchases as well, like my most recent hunt for ethical and sustainable sheets (a post on that to come, I promise).
