The Friday Shop

3 ways everyone - yes, everyone - can support ethical fashion:
1) Refuse to diminish the value of sewing labor by calling things "overpriced" simply because you can't afford them.
2) Buy fewer clothes/wear things until they're worn out.
3) Properly take care of your clothes.

Cora Harrington continues to be one of my favorite follows on Twitter. Also known as The Lingerie Addict and an author on the subject, Harrington is a wealth of information on manufacturing far beyond just bras and undies. And she discusses ethical fashion in a way that is truly accessible to all.

I sometimes get sh*t on my clothing suggestions being too expensive. The thing is, I don't expect or want anyone to buy everything I feature. I feature a mix of brands that I think offer quality products in a reasonable size range, ethical and sustainable fashion brands with inclusive sizing, and a few randoms mixed in.

My hope is it will show that there is great fashion beyond the retailers you are familiar with, and that you can buy less, buy quality, yet still have just as much variety and style.

And if you can't afford the items I feature, you may find similar for less, or thrifted, or you can sew a great alternative. Or you may realize that seeing it on me instead of a size 2, 22-year-old model may make you realize you don't really like that style or trend.

But the main point is to realize that no dress will change your life, but making thoughtful purchases can help you achieve personal style that lasts, requires fewer repurchases, and are pieces you love and love you in return for far more than one season.

Sale Alert

The Friday Shop

Hey Sephora fans, your Super Bowl is here! Well, one of them. It's the Sephora Spring Sales Event, which is one of those top-tier shop early, then mid-tier, and then on and on. It's a good sale, and if you shop Sephora, it's nice to be rewarded for being a Beauty Insider (free to join).

  • Starting today ROUGE members get 20% off
  • Come April 13, VIB members get 15% off
  • On April 15, everyone else gets 10% off
  • ALL TIERS use the same promo code: OMGSPRING

Usually, this is where I share what I love from the brand and recommend shopping, but that is hard because the likes are extensive. While my clothing and accessory shopping drastically reduced this past year, my beauty purchases went up and several were from Sephora. Your girl is now ROUGE and there are more things I buy from there than can fit in one of my shopping carousel widgets.

If you're taking advantage of this sale, let us know in the comments what you purchased. What was a fun treat on sale, and what did you stock up on for less?

Talbots is another sale that shouldn't be missed: through the 12th, in stores and online, you can get 25% off one item, 30% off two items, or 40% off three or more items. I KNOW, it's good, right?

And there is a lot at Talbots that I am liking. I'll be honest, I reached out to Talbots asking if they would gift me a few things so I can style them for the blog (and then enjoy wearing them all spring and summer). The items I asked for:

I will return with What I Bought and What I Thought next week; I didn't buy anything new this week but I have some stuff en route so I should have a review or two next Friday!
