Trending: Vibram Furoshiki

Hello Loves,

I was searching online today through facebook and, I found the link to some new and, awesome vibram shoes. They fold over your feet instead of tying them up. they are so new I am only finding one review for them on YouTube. From watching the review it looks like the shoe could use a little more support/stability. I am wondering if I were to walk around int the shoe if my toe would keep slipping forward? I have not ha luck with getting vibram shoes second hand in the past because they don’t seems to fit vibram-wrap-shoesquite right. If I could actually try on a vibram shoe at the store I’m sure I could find my fit. As the vibram furoshiki is a new trend within the fitness industry is it possible companies like Nike will hop on board to make a similar shoe? The look of this shoe is much more attractive then the 5 finger vibrams which might make them more appealing to the customer. The guy that did the review said that he would be returning the shoe because of the fit and the fabric. he fabric looked extremely thin which is a little alarming when it is there to protect your foot. When I first saw them ¬†thought they’d be great for Italy; they don’t look like sneaker and, they are stylish enough to par with jeans. Than, watching the review I decided they are probably not quite right for my feet. I went to the website to investigate further and, they were over $100 so, I wouldn’t be able to get them anyway. I shop a lot of second hand for a reason. Do you think this trend will catch on or do you think it will be a dud poll in with your comments down below.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

Capsule Wardrobe

Is the capsule wardrobe the most ethical and sustainable wardrobe to own, even if you love fashion. Well, ethical means that you are buying from fair trade companies that do not harm animals and, treat other human beings in a humane way. It can also, be ethical to buy secondhand because you are not contributing to new fast fashion items being made and, preventing the clothing from going into the landfills. I have volunteered at places where clothing is donated and, sold and, they are actually really picky on what they sell so, make sure if you are donating the clothing that is goes to a place where the clothing will be used. Capsule wardrobe was created in the 1970’s by Susie Fox a London

Boutique owner. Susie, strived for a capsule wardrobe to be a small collection of 37 items of clothing to wear for the season. A season last for about three months depending on where you live. In N.J. the weather can be very tricky sometimes it can be very warm and, change to snow all of a sudden. If you can plan for this by knowing what climate you live in and, how the weather changes this will help you a great deal to create your capsule wardrobe. You will develop a wardrobe of 37 items including shoes, coats, sweaters,tops, pants, skirts, dresses, and formal wear. You will be wearing all of these pieces for 3 months so, you will want some basic pieces and colors such as, white, black, nude, and brown. Because you will be wearing these pieces for three months you will want to find your style and, probably shake it up. So, I suggest a few fun pieces or accessories that will pull your outfit together. Keep in mind that your capsule wardrobe will not consist of handbags,

workout clothing, underwear, or bras. Woohoo so, you aren’t totally constriction well, that makes me think should you cap how many bags, and workout clothing you can have for the next three months? I actually think that is in your best interest as well as, your wallets. During the next three months you will not be shopping for any clothing under any circumstance so, taking that into consideration you can save items and, put them together for your next capsule wardrobe. Your wardrobes will probably coincide and, you should only have switch out 5-8 pieces. Before you go on your be shopping spree for the next three months make a list of what you are going to need, make sure you are purchasing preloved or ethical clothing only. If you are on an ethical journey this is not about gouging your bank account it is about minimalist living and, seeing what you need and, what you can do without. Chances are you can shop your wardrobe and find half of your pieces. Shop places like thrift stores or Poshmark to get the best deals and, when shopping Poshmark do not buy NWT (New Wtih Tag) unless, it is ethical clothing. Ok, now that you are brain storming your new wardrobe get ride of what you do not need. Make four plies, keeping(only for your next three month wardrobe), storing ( for future capsule wardrobe), Poshmark ( to sell), and Friends/Charity. Go through your entire closet; clothing, shoes, bags, and, see what piles that they belong. I suggest making a capsule collection for your bags, and workout clothing. If you do this and, reduce what is in your closet it can help a great deal with organization and, sense of space. You will also, see what style your wardrobe goes toward and, if that is the same style you want to portray. I would call my style athletic, casual, classic, chic. That is the style I would like to portray with my fall capsule wardrobe. I will have to make quite a bit of sales on Poshmark to be able to achieve this wardrobe because, I’d like to buy from a few ethical stores. But, let’s be honest almost my whole wardrobe is from Poshmark right now. The reason my style has been completely out of wack is that right now I am trying to lose weight because I did

recently gain and, haven’t been fitting in my clothes as well. Weight gain and, lose can be a major problem when it comes to wardrobes because you may have to get an entirely new one based on fit. Right now I am in the process of eating well and, exercising so, there is no reason for me to invest in a summer wardrobe when I know that I will be losing weight and, may be a completely different size by September. My goal is to save about $500 from Poshmark to invest in my Fall wardrobe. $500 may actual seem low for 3 months $166.66/month but, I plan on buying mostly from Poshmark because it is the most economic for me right now. I will also, be using fall items for Fall, Winter, and most likely Spring so, a $500 investment is well worth it. I have four months to decide what I want my fall fashion to be and, focus on. If you are all invested in a summer wardrobe I suggest siting down and, see what you actually need for the summer. I will be hard at work traveling, working, volunteering, developing my style, and working out. What will you be doing to prepare for your fall wardrobe?
Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
