We all know it, everybody knows, there are two United States right now. Places are split down the middle, and people have been forced to choose sides. And somehow I’m feeling like that’s ok, it happens in history, times like these.   

Smart people hate to say “I’m right, they’re wrong,” because then we sound like “them.” And then we are lost in us and them. So many of us are choosing to say not who we are for or not for, but what we are going to stand for.

Slow, Ethical, Sustainable

Behida Dadolić

By now you know the mantra: slow, ethical, and sustainable fashion is what I believe, and I hope you do too, we should be looking for in fashion.

I’m not expecting 100% adherence from myself or others, I’m just trying to adhere to what I believe, I’m just trying to walk the talk.

To that end, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite brands, with links and some pictures. I don’t cover some categories of clothing, but I’ve got some, of most of the basics. Some of the brands on this list I’ve talked about, others I haven’t, but I think they all deserve a look.

And, if you need some other category, just ask me and I will try to provide in the future.

rewilding

Wild Woman Sisterhood

I’ve never had the desire to go rolling around in the mud with a bunch of naked women, under a full moon, with flowers in my hair. I’ve written before about how I’m not “airy fairy,” and yet it occurs to me that during that, my Reiki experience, I was doing a kind of rewilding. 

Let’s call it a return to some kind of true, authentic version of ourselves.

A place where we haven’t been “domesticated” to within an inch of our lives. The lives where everything is polished, with a veneer of perfection and politeness at best and constrained and constipated at worst.

onesies

Alyson Walsh

I love jumpsuits but mostly in theory. I have never been able to find one that fit me in a comfortable way. Mostly it’s the rise of most jumpsuits that just is not right. Whether you call them jumpsuits, overalls, or onesies, I don’t think my fit problems are unusual.

The crotch drops, I feel like a hip hop artist, and my thighs chaff. I’ve tried to use a belt to hold things up, but that doesn’t work, and it kind of defeats the style purpose of the jumpsuit. In any case,

I think there are all sorts of fit problems with jumpsuits.

Another person who loves jumpsuits and wears them better than anyone is Alyson Walsh of That’s Not My Age
