As I mentioned in my last post, it's kind of hard to post about "ethical fashion" when so much of it is about just buying less overall. So I have less to post about when I'm wearing the same stuff all the time. But I can at least post about that stuff. Maybe less stuff to post means I'm finally winning at this stuff? Or I'm just forgetting what I bought because I've been too lazy to post about it.
This is actually a new-ish dress but it's already one of my favorites. It's by Make It Good, materials sourced in the USA and also made in the USA and I got it in two patterns - the abstract shapes and the splattered pattern. (You can see both of them on my Stuff I Bought Pinterest board.) Along for the ride is my trusty Baggu recycled cotton duck bag in leopard print, which was also a favorite in my last post about stuff I wear/use all the time. Baggu's stuff is made in a monitored manufacturing plant in China.

Most of the summer I've been wearing cut off jean shorts (they're old True Religions that I got from a local stoop sale, pretty sure they were US-made but they seem to only have general corporate responsibility stuff on their site right now). The challenge has been to try to find "tops" (not t-shirts) to wear them with that are cotton but yet don't make me look like I'm in "I just cleaned out my garage" jean shorts and t-shirts. This one is a Mata Traders top that I've posted here before.

This weather is making it challenging to want to look presentable anyway so I've had a pretty low bar. Also, 'tis the season for facial masks. (Those pores. Man.) This is the one I liked best from all the vegan beauty boxes and whatnot:
^ I swear the label looked like this when I got it ^
It's by Jacq's Orangics and is called Green Smoothie but it's got charcoal and clay in it and is therefore awesome. "Green Smoothie" is kind of a misnomer for this one.
And I finally broke down and spent $30 on a face creme (creme!) - Blissoma Peace Evening Calming Creme. I received a sample in a Petit Vour Beauty Box and really loved it so, I'm really that kind of person, I guess. As penance, I donated a few hundred dollars to sponsoring vet care for rescued outdoor cats. We all win!
