#SustainableSunday with Kindom...

Sunday, December 9, 2018

As the seasons change, it's normal to want to make some swaps with one's wardrobe.  I've been asked a few times lately how it's possible that it always looks like I've got new and different clothes, even though I make every attempt to live minimally.  On the one hand, I blog, and am very lucky to be the recipient of some really fun pieces (like this dress ^), but I've also taken several steps to help me make smart choices with what I do allow into my closet or household. 

That being said, when I do decide to bring something new (as opposed to thrifted or handed down), I choose items that are ethically-made, sustainably-made, and I pick things that can be worn in a number of different ways.  

I've teamed up with Kindom before on their first collection and on their special release tees last summer, but their new winter collection is AMAZING!  They make all of their products using re-claimed fibers and fabrics and the prints and colours they've tracked down for this collection are fabulous.  I'll be honest: normally, I am not a fan of the wrap dress (... and I once owned a Diane Von Furstenburg wrap dress that I found in a charity shop when I lived in NYC... that's THE wrap dress).  They often fit me a bit strangely and don't feel versatile, but this particular dress happens to be something of a game-changer. 

The print and colours are amazing and I felt kind of like I glowed in this dress all day long.  Both my students and co-workers commented on this piece all day long.  Plus, I discovered that it looks like of amazing layered over my new thrifted bellbottoms AND if I get a bit fancy with the way I tie this dress, it makes a perfect kimono or beach cover up!  I'd say that that makes it pretty darn versatile!  

What's sustainable about this outfit? 

: the dress was made from reclaimed fabrics
: the boots were hand-me-downs from my step-sister
: the bracelets were all ethically handmade
: the ring is sustainably handmade
 : the leggings were hand-me-downs from my mum
