Find Me Where The Trees Are Blooming

A few weeks ago I said I wanted to work on my addiction to fast fashion (and fast food) and while I'm no where near kicking that bad habit completely to the curb, I am excited to be featuring a few more ethical/slow fashion brands and shops this spring. My skirt comes from a sweet Etsy shop, Girae Rigira, that makes handmade garments from vintage fabrics in Italy. She makes classic skirts (like mine), but also sweet little smock dresses, collared blouses, and finds some pretty adorable prints (stripes & cats?!). One of my complaints, or stumbling blocks, for slow fashion brands tends to be the that ethical or slow fashion also equals minimal chic; if you want to shop kinder you also have to cut down on creative flair. But this shop is full of color and pattern and reasonably priced pieces (teal suspender skirt with removable straps, anyone?) and is a good reminder that it's about finding the right shops and pieces that work for you. And a little mustard skirt will pretty much always work for me!




  1. I love your dress, the colour is perfect! I'm a bit addicted to fast fashion too, but hey, lets just try our best! :)

  4. The skirt is beautiful of course... it's mustard so why wouldn't it be, right!? AND THAT RING!!!!!

  5. Right there with you on the struggle with buying fast fashion! However, I can't wait to see what new brands you share that focus on the slower side of fashion and this skirt is a fabulous start in it's color and style and I love how you paired everything together:)

  6. Oh yaay! I'm so happy to know that you're interested in ethical/slow fashion now too!
    The skirt you rock here is absolutely adorable, so the fact that it's ethical is double score.
    If you're looking for a quirky ethical brand, something like Peppaloves is an option—plus, it's European so S&H wouldn't be too heavy for you, I think.
    If you're interested, I have several recommendations of ethical labels you can check out on my blog :)

    Yaay for slow fashion!

  7. OMG! beautiful pictures! <3

  8. How incredibly beautiful are these photos! And the light makes you look like a fairy :)
    I love it so much <3


  9. Love this so much! I've had exactly the same problem, trying to find cute modern vintage items that are ethical is so hard. So excited that you are sharing brands on here! Can't wait to see more!

  10. Just went to Etsy and checked out GiraeRigira. I bought 2 shirts and a skirt! I probably would have never found out about the shop without your blog and I would spent twice as much at Anthropologie and find out it's made in China. Glad to try out slow shopping for good.
