Slow Fashion Season Challenge: The Last Update

Slow Fashion Season

This year’s Slow Fashion Season challenge ended on September 21st. I explained the challenge in detail here, if you’d like to read about it.

The Slow Fashion Season Challenge was created by Collaction and the basics are that, from June 21st to September 21st, participants were to buy no new clothing. Second hand shopping and swaps are allowed. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion.

What I’ve been wearing lately: an outfit round-up

 

This week’s post is one I’ve never done before – an outfit round-up! Here’s every outfit I wore to work last week!

Outfit Round-up: Monday

Outfit Round-up: Monday Camel blazer and Aritzia dress and Sam Edelman boots; What are the best fall outfits

I am not a Monday person. I do not greet the start of the work week with energy, goals, and peppiness. On Mondays my outfits tend to go one of two ways:

  1. Comfortable because the exhaustion is real;

  2. Power outfit to motivate me to kick this week’s a$$.

Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Everlane How to Wear; Everlane What to Buy; What is Everlane known for?

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money. All four of the pieces I’m going to talk about today I purchased second hand and two are no longer available on the Everlane website. I think the review has merit in spite of that because it speaks to the quality of Everlane garments in general. So, that said, let’s get into my third Everlane review!

Poutine and Prada Nest Fragrances Indigo

Empty products review: Indigo – Nest Fragrances

First up in this empty products review post is a perfume, which is pretty rare for me. Perfume tends to last ages! I picked up Indigo by Nest a few years ago and I adore it. It is one of my signatures scents and reminds me of a big bowl of freshly picked raspberries. It’s slightly sweet but there are definitely green notes in it as well.

From the Sephora website:

Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and black cardamom are enhanced with hints of wild fig and bergamot. These notes combine to create a captivating fragrance that transitions well from day to evening.

Would I buy it again? Most definitely, in fact I already have a fresh bottle! Actually, therein lies a funny story. Mr. P&P was in Toronto last year and popped into Sephora to pick up a little treat for yours truly. He sniffed several perfumes until he stumbled upon this one. He loved it and picked up a bottle. When he gave it to me I started laughing, because of the hundreds of perfumes that Sephora carries he’d managed to pick one of my favourites that I’ve been wearing for years! That’s a man who pays attention! Read more
