Where to Buy Ethical and Sustainable Fashion Right Now

A few weeks ago, I shared with you my article on How to find out if you fell into a second-hand fashion trap. I mentioned that I decided to change the way I practiced being sustainable when it came to fashion. Although I agree that the best solution is not to buy new clothes and wear what you have in your closet, sometimes you may need something new.

Imagine that you gain or lose weight or return to the workplace after maternity leave. You can start by looking for “new” clothes at second-hand …

How To Find Out If You Fell Into The Second-Hand Fashion Trap

If you have been visiting my blog for some time, you know that I have promoted shopping at second-hand stores for a long time. Why? Because I believed that it was one of the best ways to buy clothes sustainably.

How to Choose Sustainable Tops That You Will Love

As the weather got warmer, and summer finally came to Switzerland, I started looking for airy, short-sleeved tops. And if you’re wondering how to choose sustainable tops, this article will help you.

Although it has its limitation, it is a good …

What matters for you when you are choosing a pair of jeans? I look at how my legs look in the jeans. My friend Anicka, on the other hand, looks at her butt. How do you choose your jeans? And how to style cropped jeans in spring?

How to Update Your Minimal Spring Capsule Wardrobe

This spring has been icy and rainy in Switzerland. It does not feel like summer will ever come, and I have lacked inspiration when dressing up. And not only because I have been working from home due to COVID-19. During quarantine, I put on weight and did not feel comfortable in my body. Secondly, I outgrew my style. I turned 42 but kept wearing clothes that did not flatter me. And although I love shopping at second-hand stores, I could not find anything that would make me feel pretty. For all these reasons, I decided to update my minimal spring …
