People Tree

Most people don't think fair trade clothing can be stylish, and if it is, it will be crazy expensive. People Tree prove this to be quite wrong. Yes, you will have to pay more, but it is worth it.

Tree People is in the UK and unfortunately they do not ship to North America. But there are stores, such as ASOS in the UK, where they do ship to Canada, and they do sell some of People Tree's clothing.

Here are a few of my fav. from their new collection:

August Shopping Diet

So, in the NY Times, there was a video for the 'shopping diet' where you can do 1 of 2 things: choose 6 items and wear there for one month (while changing accessories), or not shopping for a year.

Knowing myself, I want to try something to resist my shopping habits (and to keep the money in the bank!) So, I have decided I am going to wear what is in my wardrobe (I may add a few new staple style pieces aka a denim vest and some cool new fall shoes), but the idea is to see how many cool looks I can create with what I have, and post each look/outfit whenever I feel it is post worthy!

Will post soon...
