Lace, Paisley, and Sustainability

_1050319

Anyone who has looked at my blog probably noticed that I wear a lot of H&M. Recently, there has been a lot of buzz around H&M and their sustainability efforts in the fashion world. I don’t know enough about  their efforts to really have an opinion yet, but I do like that they are bringing attention to the not-so sustainable fashion world and are making efforts to (at the very least), appear to be transparent.

If you’re like me, you probably have a hard time keeping up with fashion trends, and finding a way to pay your bills. I try to balance this by purchasing things second hand (hello, Goodwill), refashioning, and donating old clothes. You don’t have to give up fast fashion all together, but you can take small steps that can make a big difference.
