Earth Day

Every day is Earth DayHappy Earth Day! In honor of this important day, I wanted to share my thoughts on the impact our wardrobe choices has on the planet. What first drove me to start this blog was my love of fashion. I wanted to keep my passion while still being environmentally friendly. But I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t always this way. In my teens, I was very materialistic and ignorant of the impact my shopping addiction had on the planet. I was obsessed with Gossip Girl (so much so that I even had a blog devoted to the fashion of the show) and dreamed of having wardrobes as fabulous as that of Blair Waldorf. I wanted to be a stylist and hoped to dress characters in all the glamorous clothing I couldn’t afford on a TV show someday. I saved up the money I earned on that blog to buy designer jeans and handbags. I stayed this way until age 20 when I went vegan. I look back at this time as a fun start to my blogging journey but I am so glad I have since realized that designer brands aren’t everything.
