I have been participating in this challange called “A year without new clothes”. It will soon come to an end, last time I bought a new piece of clothing was in late May 2014 when I was visiting my friend in Spain! So, I have started searching for new clothes. I’m going to share a few things that I like from a Finnish webstore spezialising in ecological and ethical fashion called Yalo. This store is in no way sponsoring me, it’s just my own recommendation.
Going a year without buying new clothes hasn’t helped my overstuffed wardrobe, because I buy quite a lot second hand. But if I’m going to buy something new I want to know where it’s made and of what material! I really don’t want to support the fast fashion industry with it’s underpaid workers in Bangladesh. These jeans seem to be the most ecological ones that I have come across: they are made here in Finland, from recycled fiber! The brand Nurmi has recycled jeans for men too. One of my favorite bloggers, the Trashionista Outi Les Pyy also recommended these.
This dress is from the same webstore by the Swedish brand Emma&Malena. I love their timeless design because then your clothes don’t go out of fashion too fast! When I buy something new I usually think: “could I wear this in 10 years too?”. If the answer is no, then I don’t buy it. I’ll have to make sure I’m still the same size in 10 years haha 😀
