A week of thrifted outfits

A week of thrifted outfits

Ethical fashion is not all that accessible. I know it, you know it. Buying a shirt for $100 is outside of the realm of possibility a lot of the time. And while I do save up for some cherished items from ethical brands, my first […]

My Fall ’19 Closet Mood Board

My Fall ’19 Closet Mood Board

The air is starting to feel crisp, my windows are open and I saw the first tree with turning leaves this past weekend. It’s a sure-fire sign that fall is not just ahead, but here, and that means it’s time to take stock of the […]

10 outfits to try with sneakers this fall

I never understood the sneaker thing. I saw other people doing it, but somehow could never grasp the concept of wearing sneakers with non-athletic clothes, even if I owned them. And then it happened: I saw a photo on Pinterest of an amazing skirts + […]

The conflict between sustainability and ethical fashion

The conflict between sustainability and ethical fashion

Every time we cycle around to a new season in the fashion calendar, I go through a phase of existential crisis. If we’re trying to minimize our contribution to climate change, to minimize fashion waste and create a more conscious production cycle, then why would […]

I can’t believe it! Another summer is wrapping up and we’re all looking forward to crisp leaves and cosy sweaters— well, I’m sure some of us are! I’m a little sad to see the days getting shorter, and was only just getting used to taking […]

Styling Kotn’s new woven shirts

I can’t do justice to the story of Kotn. A Toronto & Egypt-based garment brand that started with simple, staple t-shirts made from Egyptian cotton, they just know how to tell a story. Really, really well. What I can share with you is my own […]

Consciously made slide shoes to travel in

This week was a wonderful one—filled with action, events and spending time with people I care deeply about. I slept away from home, went back and forth to the city, saw a theatre show and finished it all off with a vocal lesson that ran […]

Building the basics: Ethical staples for every day

I discovered Kotn because I was doing competitive research. We were interested on how other ethical Canadian companies were navigating the discount-heavy season of Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Everlane, TOMS, all the regulars. And then out of the woodwork came Kotn: giving 100% of profits during […]
