I Join the Reformation




Lately, my fashion sense of style is one that I can define as timeless, effortless with a vintage flow or at least that's what I want to believe. I've been scouting lots of Paris second hand and vintage stores for months trying to find that clothing gems that I dream about. I normally shop basic pieces that I can use no matter what trend is going on, and of course, while staying on a budget. You cannot imagine how many awesome things I already found, that literally cost me nothing. I'm talking about vintage luxury items of brands like Saint-Laurent, Dior, and Proenza Schouler just to name a few ( I'm not kidding. I think the minimum that I paid is 3€, that's like $3.50. Say What? Yeah, I know amazing.) I do this mainly for two reasons; One is because, yes I want to save money while looking good, also because I really like that vintage-inspired look. And secondly, I like the idea of giving a garment a longer life length in other words re-use and recycle every garment. This is so important for me, because unfortunately, the reality is that the fashion industry is one of the largest polluters in the world. Not only that, the factories where some of this clothes are made are not regulated and the workers (which the vast majority are women) are working in deplorable conditions with minimum to zero rights.

But there are a few fashion brands that are making the difference, and one that stands for everything that I love is L.A. based brand Reformation. I'm a huge fan of their sustainable philosophy practices and their commitment to the rights of their factory workers. Ok yes, their price point is a little bit higher knowing that I like to hunt in vintage/second-hand heaven, but sometimes I like to treat myself with something really nice. Their aesthetic is a mix of minimalism,  Jane Birkin essence, and sensuality and lots of lots basics.

Here is a list of my favorites pieces so far. Do you have a brand that you like that is helping to save the planet?

* Little note aside this, not an affiliate post, I just simply like the brand and the concept behind.
