The chilly weather caught me unawares - and in a t-shirt - last week, which prompted this impulse buy. I am shining it on since I secretly love fleece items when they're not shaped like sweatshirts. I feel like I still get to feel lazy but since it's covert fleece, I feel like I don't look lazy. (Don't tell me if I do. And don't imagine me in this with beret. Because that's not going to happen.)
Alignment with values? Vegan - check. Sweatshop free - supposedly. Longevity of use ("eco") - somewhat seasonal but we'll see. I've forced myself to wear it on every jacket-requiring day to get used to it so I'll wear it more.
Capes + bags prove problematic. Especially since I always carry a bag large enough to fit 2 days' worth of camping necessities in it. I think my best bet is either a wristlet (yeah, right) or a skinny tote bag (alright) so I don't look like a humpback.
So much for mining my wishlist for September.
What's that? I have $10 left because that cape is only $70? Nah, brah. I already spent $10 at the Bkyn thrift on a kids' size denim jacket (to make into a vest), a kids' size blazer (to wear as an adult), pants (to be tailored to straight leg), a knit cap and a bandana.
