Sustainability is the New Black Part 2: Recycling

We compost our food stuffs to fertilize the garden. We recycle paper, which gets turned into coffee filters. We recycle wood, which gets turned into plywood. We recycle plastic bottles, which gets turned into other plastic bottles, but what about textiles? 70 pounds per person of textiles goes into landfills each year. Only 15% get recycled. And with fast fashion retailers on the rise that number is growing!

What’s wrong with fast fashion? Hey, I love a good sale where I can pick up an outfit that is on fleek.

Sustainability is the New Black Part 1: Up-cycling

The topic of needing a more sustainable fashion industry is a big one. Fashion is second after the oil and gas industry in terms of global carbon emissions and it is one of the most wasteful industries in the world. With fast fashion companies, like H&M and Forever 21, producing way more than they can sell, 87% percent of the produced fashion will go into landfills or be incinerated. 87 percent! I was floored when I learned this!

the Tea on the Tie Necklaces

Ever since I had the accessories flash sale on my birthday I have been getting questions on who, what, where, when, why and how to wear the tie necklaces. So here is the tea.

Linen, the Everyday Fabric

Linen is an everyday easy-going fabric that you need in your closet! It is a light, airy, yet durable fabric that keeps you cool on these hot summer days. This fabric is made from the flax seed plant which is a natural raw material. It requires no chemicals to grow or to turn it into a wearable fiber thus making linen sustainable, organic, and great for our environment too.

the Sequins of Events

If I can recall the night correctly, I was laying in bed, probably playing dots and listening to Ari Lennox, when Stacy sent me a text and asked me to write a blog post about sequins. She tells me “It’s all over the runway; so you must cover it!” I know there was definitely more to that text, but all I could see was the word SEQUIN, like someone standing alone at a bar. It was like I had entered the land of forbiddenness of “never to talk about, never to look at”. I asked myself, ‘’Where do I even start with sequins?”And if you are one of those women, that was thinking what I was thinking, I wanna let you in on a few secrets that I learned about sequins.

Own Your Stripes

After a girl’s night of wine and incredible dish of garlic butter chicken we sat around the table discussing fashion trends. As I mentioned stripes in the conversation, it was like mentioning the ghost of Christmas past! Or your ex-boyfriend with the ugly sweater. I heard the countless views, concerns and misconceptions of the stripes and their body types. While walking home that evening I couldn’t help but wonder if stripes had become some sort of new fashion taboo.

After spending a few days of having Vouge Runway and The Aesthetik’s spring/summer 2019 collection for breakfast, I wanted to put an end to the stripe taboo.

Guess Who!?

I have been getting emails asking if everything is really handmade? The answer is yes, yes, and yes! I make the pattern for every design and I sew everything myself. When there are so many orders that I can’t sew it myself then I hire local seamstresses to help me out. Nothing is made in a factory! Everything is made once you place the order.

Sweet Versatility!!

When looking for a way to jumpstart your spring style, Eyelet does just the trick! In its most common form, this spring/summer classic is a traditional, breezy, light weight cotton fabric with a natural “air-conditioning” characteristic.

the Florals

Bold all over floral prints inspired by the 1960s have re-emerged on the fashion scene in both women’s and men’s fashion. We’ve seen everything from playful to sexy, mini flowers to exploding florals, and abstract to realistic. This is one trend that will have longevity and is not to be missed. the Aesthetik now has similar prints with bold details available now for the spring / summer!
