Made in Africa Sneakers for the Light at Heart

SHOES. I LOVE SHOES. This is not an understatement. The women on both sides of my family LOVE shoes and footwear of all kinds. I recently inherited a pair of vintage Stuart Weitzman pumps from my late aunt, and it is such a fitting memento and reminder of her. But today I’d like to focus on a BIPOC-owned shoe brand which is doing amazing things in design and sustainability. Meet Panafrica – a casual sneaker

What Does Creativity Have to Do With Slow Fashion?

I wasn’t always so good at shopping my closet. Before I started my slow fashion journey towards building a conscious closet, I had no style direction and lots of disposable income. This is a disastrous combination if you want to adopt slow fashion and/or have a conscious closet. It was only when I quit my lucrative finance job and moved into a 700 square foot condo with my husband that I became uber intentional and

9 Characteristics of a Slow Fashion Company

The other day I read an article that said ‘sustainability was having a moment’ thus cementing the era of brands using sustainability as a marketing tool. This can confuse consumers into thinking that “sustainability” is something you can slap on a product, or something you can check off a list and buy. Slow fashion is a piece of the sustainability puzzle, and one that I feel is often overlooked when it comes to figuring out

Easy Habits That Will Make You Fall Back In Love With Your Closet

The other day on my IG account, someone kindly pointed out that the sweater I was wearing in my photo needed de-pilling. She was absolutely right, and I knew I should have de-pilled it before taking the photo, but I was tight on time and hoped that nobody would notice knowing full-well (of course!) that someone would. I actually love taking the time to de-pill my sweaters and steam my clothes. I find it to

3 Podcasts For Indigenous Learning and Listening

I’ve recently gotten really into podcasts, but I wish I could spend more time listening to them. I’m so curious about when people have time to listen to podcasts – between work, reading, Patreon subscriptions, and walking my cat (lolz), when can I listen to podcasts?

The 10 Best Purchases I’ve Ever Made in my Wardrobe

There have been times when I looked at items in my closet and thought: “what was I thinking?” Especially recently, when I took a really hard look at what was in my closet compared to my personal style. With every garment that got listed on Poshmark, thredUP or sent to donation, I could pinpoint exactly where I was and what I was thinking when I bought it. Usually, it went something like this: YES. THIS.
