Unique Wooden Watches: A Gorgeous Conversational Piece by Jord

3rd July 2019

Jord Watches

Jord designs incredibly timeless, classic and elegant watches — just my style. I love pieces that can be sustainable for seasons to come, transitioning seamlessly throughout time. I’m not a huge fan of purchasing things that are on trend and I can’t see myself wearing for more than a season at a time. Not only is that method unsustainable for our environment, but it’s a waste of money, too! This is why I was so excited when Jord watches reached out for a collaboration. Also, stay tuned till the end of this post… I’ve got a sneaky surprise for you! 

This post contains a gifted piece from Jord watches, and this is a collaboration post. However, I do not make any commission off of the affiliate code, should you choose to use it. Please visit my Disclosures + Codes page for more information on my transparency practices.

A Dress Made of Flour Sacks // Liz Alig

20th June 2019

Liz Alig Dress | Jade of Trades

Where and how something was made tells a story of that brand. I no longer can justify spending my money where I know that the people who have made my clothing have suffered. How you choose to spend your money determines what kind of world you want to live in; with every dollar, you vote for fair living wages or not. You vote for cruel animal practices… or not. And you vote for the right of others to suffer for fashion… or not. Liz Alig is a brand that you can contribute to that makes their items with meaning — slowly and ethically. read more

Luxurious, Chic & Animal-Free // Niko Ineko

14th June 2019

Niko Ineko | Handbag Review

I received the most GORGEOUS bags from Niko Ineko last week. Y’all… I’m not joking. These bags are so incredibly beautiful and luxurious. Inspired by the magnificent Southwestern United States, I love how these resemble saddle bags with the most subtle detailing that amps it up and makes them the perfect classic accessory to your outfits.

The very best part? These luxurious, chic, beautiful bags are completely animal-free. They’re crafted from vegan leather that is so high-quality and feels SO nice. The brand has an incredible commitment to conservation and animal welfare that I admire so, so much. I love to wear brands that share beliefs that align with my own, and Niko Ineko is of no exception.

Summer CauseBox 2019

12th June 2019

 

Summer CauseBox

My first CauseBox came in the mail! Are y’all fans of the subscription-based services happening nowadays across beauty and fashion brands? I personally think it’s so much fun! I’m so guilty of repurchasing the same things over and over again, not because I love them, but because I’m comfortable with them. As an (upcoming) law student, I don’t have a ton of money to splurge on products I may or may not like. That’s why subscription boxes are a great alternative; these products are curated by stylists and industry professionals.

You guys know I’m such a fan of brands and products that are made mindfully, meaning that they are either fair trade or artisan trade and empower the lives of those who make them instead of perpetuating poverty. So, when CauseBox reached out to me to send me their summer box, I was super excited. My love for subscription boxes combined with ethically and sustainably made items is my dream come true.
