October 21. Midnight sharp.
If you’re a Taylor Swift fan, you know what this means. If you’re not, basically, Taylor Swift’s 10th studio album Midnights is out on October 21. It tells the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout her life. As of writing this blog post, no lead single has been released and I have no idea what the album will sound like. Regardless, I already pre-ordered the vinyl, so… it better sound good!
Every time Taylor Swift releases a new album, she has a whole new aesthetic for that era. For ex., reputation era was all snakes, dark lipstick and dark clothing. Lover era was rainbows and butterflies. folklore and evermore were cottagecore vibes. The Midnights era looks like it’s all ’70s and vintage, which is my favourite!
Honestly, I’m loving all the old-timey aesthetics of this era and I’m absolutely loving all of her outfits this era. I decided to take some of my favourite outfits during this era (so far) and try to recreate them using pieces from sustainable brands. I used Remake and Good On You to help me find the brands since I’m still new to sustainable/ethical fashion. If you want the exact pieces Taylor’s wearing, check out this site.

It’s my birthday today! The only reason why I’m making this post is because my birthday falls on a Tues(two’s)day on 02/22/2022. I honestly just wanna commemorate it because of the date! But I guess I’ll take this time to reflect on my recent shopping habits and highlight one of my favourite jewelry stores.

Perhaps some of the most coveted items for fashion lovers and collectors are vintage Levi’s. I myself have tried to get in on the action by scouring thrift stores for old Levi’s jeans, but they are hard to find. At least, in my area, either people are not donating them, or they get snatched up right away. The only pair of Levi’s jeans that I found at the thrift store that I would say is vintage was not my size, so I bought it for my mom instead. There’s a whole method of determining whether a pair of Levi’s jeans or jacket is vintage, but I’ll save that for another post.

It’s summertime! My favourite season. I love the heat. Anything above 25 degrees Celsius is ideal for me. I always tell people hot weather is being in a warm hug all the time. Doesn’t that sound nice?
Anyways, summer also means beach weather. If beaches are slowly opening up in your country, then it’s the perfect time to head to the beach! (While being safe, of course!). There’s nothing better than just relaxing by the water and leaving all your worries and stress behind. For many, it’s also a way to show off their stylish swimsuits or breezy summer dresses.
I’ve compiled a list of five brands that sell sustainable and ethical swimsuits, beach accessories, and summer dresses.

The first step to buying eco-friendly clothing is knowing what the fabric is made out of. If you want to start buying eco-friendly or sustainable clothes, it might help to know more about which fabrics are considered good for the environment and which ones are not.
For example, synthetic fibres like polyester and nylon are non-biodegradable and produces a ton of greenhouse gas emissions.
I know I had to educate myself on these things because I made a lot of assumptions as to what could be considered eco-friendly, but they ended up not being so great. Now that I’m aware of these things, I can make more informed choices the next time I go shopping.
Here are some eco-friendly fabrics to consider if you want to shop sustainably.

I started this blog about six years ago because I love fashion. But over the years, I grew disillusioned with the industry. I wasn’t sure I wanted to talk about fashion because I didn’t feel like it was making a difference or didn’t educate people on anything “important.” And after I watched The True Cost documentary a couple of years ago, it completely changed my view of the industry. I lost the motivation to write about fashion and keep up with the latest trends.
