Ever since the #summer10x10 I've been trying to do mini-capsules for the work week so that I don't have to spend time everyday picking out what to wear, and it's been saving me so much time! I just pull a group of clothes and shoes on Sunday evening and then stick with the capsule for the entire work week. Which has maybe been one of my better ideas in life 😝 💡.⠀
Pulled these shoes for the mini-capsule and its looking like 50 shades of brown over here. Good thing brown/tan/taupe goes with mostly everything I own! Also I'm so over summer already and having some serious Fall anticipation 🍂. Can't wait to bring out all the boots!⠀

Thanks for your support as always, Kathryn x
znamená dať textilnému odpadu
druhú šancu a vyrobiť z neho niečo nové s vyššou hodnotou, než mal pôvodný materiál. Práve s touto technikou spracovávania textilného odpadu sa zaoberáme v @bagbet V súčasnosti sa produkuje obrovské množstvo textilného odpadu. Našim cieľom je dať druhú šancu práve najkvalitnejším materiálom, ako je napríklad kašmír, hodváb, bavlna, či ľan. A vnášať tak ekológiu do každodenného života. #iprum#bagbet#upcycling#sustanablefashion#ecology#whomadeyourclothes#ethicalfashion#lepsisvet
I love layering in winter, especially in colour! The #crueltyfree Ice Blobette Skivvy is ethically made in #Melbourne by an independent brand who values sustainability and transparency, and some of the range is made with recycled materials too. Tap to shop or head to thefashionadvocate.com to learn more about ethical fashion and make a difference with your wardrobe.
Brightening up Autumn and Winter with these colours is surely going to be fun! We love this DUNS collection and even better that it’s all ethically made with organic cotton, great for delicate skin and perfect to know that no one is suffering or being poorly paid to produce the beautiful clothes.
#ootn - Outfit of the night for a date night ♥️ I’m wearing some freshly laundered @elizsuzann florence linen pants, my thrifted “fancy” tank, @nisoloshoes slide sandals, and a vintage clutch I scored at goodwill last spring 👏🏼 - We aren’t really the type of people to do a date night every week because we are such homebodies, but it’s so nice to make ourselves go out every once in a while. We had an amazing experience with dinner & drinks at @ticonderogaclub 👌🏼✨
We love you all so much we are throwing a free barbecue at our upcoming pop up shop on August 25!! Barbecue starts at 11am so bring your fam too! The fam can check out the Winwave hockey sample sale while you shop!

Did you know? Once upon a time, we launched the mock-up of Ethical Fashion Brazil website in a fair, in Mexico, in 2016. I remember working at the airport of Peru and San Salvador, facing several problems of the layout. Despite this, we had a happy end. The event was the Latin America Summit of @peacerevolution with people from all over the world to promote the culture of peace and meditation. It was amazing to be there and understand better a life with purpose to serve the others. By the way, everybody can join a free and online course of meditation, the Self Development Program.

In my third year of University I wrote a 3500 word research essay about how terrible social media is for us, how it brings up consistent comparison and self validation through the number of followers we have or the amount of engagement an image gets. Now, while I still believe that this can be true, I feel more so that it comes down to the people you follow and how they make you feel.
I have a strict policy with myself that I only follow people on social media that inspire me, and educate me to be better than I was the day before. Six months after I wrote that essay, I found this beautiful human on Instagram.
She spoke all about ethical fashion and living life more consciously and ultimately was someone who inspired me to make EME and keep myself accountable to living a more mindful life.
She’s also now one of my closest friends.
Amber is the mastermind behind not only @theconsciouscut, but she also has created the most incredible label called @baiia_label. Baiia uses recycled ocean plastic and ghost fishing nets and vegetable based inks to create the most beautiful swimwear that is reversible - two for the price of one 🙌🏼🙌🏼 So while we may have the idea that social media is terrible especially for our self esteem, it can also lead to some of the best friendships. Let’s all try to be a little more social on social media, and be ruthless with those you follow. That’s my challenge for you this week. Happy Monday legends 💫✨
The bond between an orangutan mother and her young is one of the strongest in nature. The mothers, who usually give birth to a single baby or occasionally twins, carry their offspring for the first five years. For the first 7-11 years of their life, a young orangutan's closest companion is its mother. The mothers teach their offspring where to find food, what and how to eat, how to avoid predators and how to build a sleeping nest. Mothers sleep in a nest with their offspring every night.
Sadly, these incredibly intelligent, iconic tree-dwellers have suffered dramatically from habitat loss - 80% of their habitat has disappeared in the last 20 years. The Bornean orangutan is estimated to number only 104,000 individuals, while there are under 14,000 Sumatran orangutans. Orangutans could become extinct in the next decade through continued palm oil deforestation and hunting. Supporting organisations focussing on conservation (such as @bosfoundation @theorangutanproject @orangeappealuk @wwf), avoiding products that contain palm oil or joining a volunteer program are some ways you can help support these magnificent creatures. One of was recently gifted the adoption from @bosfoundation of a beautiful little orangutan! We definitely recommend heartfelt gifts like this which fill us with happiness and make a difference!
