PSA: Get Your Clothes Altered

An Old Way to Battle Fast Fashion

I never once got a piece of clothing altered growing up. I also wasn’t as much of a consumer then as I am now, and I just wore whatever I had and whatever was given to me as it was. As an adult, I’ve started shopping waaaaay more than I ever thought I would, and become aware of how those shopping habits are impacting the planet negatively.

I mostly buy clothes online, since we don’t have most of the big fashion stores locally (Zara, H&M, Topshop, ASOS, etc.), so I rarely get to try things on before committing. I’m also a bargain hunter, so 90% of the time the stuff I’ve bought is on sale, and non-refundable. Result? I’ve gotten my share of clothes that kind of/sort of fit, at least enough to be wearable, but are nothing like what I’d imagine. I mostly wear them out of guilt for having bought them, and am constantly disappointed at how badly they fit me since they’re SO cute. The last straw for me? This gingham number from Topshop that I bought on sale last summer:

My Top 30 #30Wears

aka — my top 30 most worn pieces of clothing 

The Top 30 #30Wears is a new challenge that I’m starting right here, today! The 30 Wears Campaign was started by EcoAge’s Livia Firth, and aims to bring more awareness to sustainability practices when shopping. The requirements of the challenge are pretty simple– just write a blog post, make a YouTube video, Instagram story, Twitter thread, (ANYTHING) featuring your 30 favourite pieces of clothing that you’ve worn at least 30 times, bringing more awareness to the aims to #30Wears and sustainable shopping practices! You can read more about the campaign, this challenge and why both are so important to me on Essa+Ace – a website I started to resell quality pieces of clothing and talk about issues in the fashion industry. Here is my submission to the Top 30 #30Wears Challenge, my favourite pieces of clothing that I’ve definitely worn at least 30 times.

The Eco-Friendly Gift Guide

Processed with VSCO with av4 preset
In honour of Earth Day I thought I would share with you an eco-friendly gift guide. Whether you’re buying for someone who’s super up on the sustainable and ethically conscious consumer movement, or you yourself want to buy more eco-friendly even when gift giving, I’ve got you covered. As the environmental movement gets co-opted by consumer culture, we’re seeing more and more eco-friendly products for all kinds of different interests.
