Happy Tuesday! Today I want to introduce you to Lauren from ethical fashion blog Chic Éthique. I found her blog while I was looking for new ethical style bloggers to follow and instantly fell in love! She shares beautiful outfits, gives tips on how to get more wear out of your outfits and makes ethical fashion accessible for everyone. These are all big favourites in my book! Today, Lauren shares her favourite outfit with us and tells us more about her views on fair fashion. Enjoy!
Tell us something about yourself and Chic Éthique!
I’m a piano teacher by day and a fashion blogger over on my blog Chic Éthique by night! I did my university work in classical piano, but I’ve always had a love for style. My blog became my outlet for that love, and I enjoy posting about the outfits I create from my capsule wardrobe.
If you could sum up your life at the moment, what would it be?
Presence, or whether that’s what I’m striving for in this season of life. It’s incredibly easy to be constantly distracted by endless information streams, but I’m working on giving my full attention to people and projects so I can be more effective as a teacher, friend, and blogger.
Today I have the great pleasure of introducing Laura from The OGNC to you on Everlasting Apparel! Her blogazine is a beautiful collection of fair fashion, natural beauty and recipes that seriously make your mouth water. She’s a student from Hannover and a fashion blogger who decided to switch to fair fashion a few months ago. Find out more about her and her Everlasting pieces below!
Tell us something about yourself and The OGNC!
Hi, my name is Laura, I’m from Berlin and I’m 23 years old. At the moment, I study Technical Documentation in Hanover, Germany. I’ve been thinking a lot about mass consumption over the last couple of months. In December 2016 it finally happened. Without any second thoughts, I completely sweeped out all of my cosmetics products I had and gave them away – for free.
Next, I spent some time researching sustainable fashion and decided to buy only second hand products or fair fashion from then on. My old blog actually talked a lot about conventionally produced products, so I launched “The OGNC” in April 2017 instead. The OGNC deals with natural and organic cosmetics, fair fashion, interviews and soon with a green lifestyle. (more…)
Today I’m happy to share a new post of my favourite feature on this blog again: An Everlasting Apparel post! The wonderful Lisa from fair fashion blog ‘at least’ talks about her everlasting piece and why she wants to keep it for years and years. If you’re new to this blog: Everlasting Apparel is a column where I ask my favourite fashion bloggers and creatives to share their most beloved pieces with us. Not new items, but clothes that have a story connected with them from years of wearing them. Because isn’t that so much better than new anyway?
Tell us something about yourself & at least!
I am Lisa, a fair fashion blogger from Berlin. Next to writing about ethically made clothing, I also enjoy sewing a lot and have recently started to get into coding too. I care a lot for environmental issues and think that there needs to be more action taken. At some point I felt that there wasn’t enough done so I just figured that instead of complaining I could start something myself.
If you could sum up your life in one sentence at the moment, what would it be?
Although I’m at the end of my twenties, I’m still looking for my dream career – probably like most of us ;) It can be a little tough sometimes but I also love that I get to try out lots of new things. (more…)
These pictures just scream summer and coolness, don’t they? Today I’m really happy to introduce Kayla to you for a new Everlasting Apparel feature. I discovered her blog, Audax Journal, a couple of weeks ago (it’s still brand new!) and instantly fell in love with all the colours and the beautiful photography. Kayla is a freelance photographer, so no wonder it looks so great. She’s introducing us to the most beautiful everlasting piece today – a dress she got from her grandma! Read on for more about Kayla, her take on ethical fashion and this beautiful dress. (more…)
Today I’m excited to bring back Everlasting Apparel again! I really love reading people’s stories and hearing what they connect to their favourite pieces of clothing, so I’m happy there’s finally another post in this series again (and it’s a good one). Meet Naomi, a conscious fashion and lifestyle blogger from Antwerp in Belgium – one of my favourite cities in the world. She’s a biologist and a blogger (perfect requirements for a blog on sustainable fashion) She blogs about her journey with fair fashion and as a newbie vegan, so if you’re into these topics, check out her blog, it’s beautiful!
Tell us something about yourself!
Hi everyone! I’m Naomi from the personal blog ‘Dress your life
‘, born and raised in a little country called Belgium. Ever since I was little, I wanted to do something with animals and that’s how I ended up being a biologist many years later. During my studies I learned so much about both fauna and flora, which resulted in a huge admiration for everything nature. Finding a job in biology proved to be quite the challenge, that’s why I channelled my passion towards my free time. From adventurous travels into carnivore territories, to long forest runs, and finally to my blog! After watching ‘The True Cost’ I could no longer willfully contribute to such a destructive system and totally turned around my shopping habits and blog content. From now on I’m going the green mile!
