I love second hand shopping. I’m not an expert but I have snagged a few amazing pieces over the years. I also live in a remote area where the options for shopping second hand are somewhat abysmal so I’ve done a lot of research about second hand shopping online. Today I am going to share the fruits of my labour with you, my lovely readers! Here are my favourite online consignment stores and thrifting options!
Welcome to my first Everlane review! I’ve talked a fair bit about sweatshirts already, but I felt that there was room for one more in my collection. My Everlane Lightweight French Terry Crew is different from my other sweatshirts in shape, fit, colour, and fabric so I think it was a worthwhile addition to my closet.

Sustainable Wardrobe – Why I’m Making the Switch
I usually try to stay away from controversial topics on my blog. I prefer to keep it light and fun. However, our current environmental situation is desperate and I feel strongly about it. I’m making the change to a sustainable wardrobe and I want to tell you why. This post may get a little preachy and I apologize for that. It’s important though, so I encourage you to read on!
The Current Situation
Our current situation is pretty dire. With climate change, overpopulation, deforestation, and pollution we have nearly succeeded in making our home planet inhospitable to human life, as well as to most of our fellow animals. We’ve got a very short time left to make some drastic changes if we want to change our current circumstances. There are lots of things we can all do to help that go beyond recycling.
I’m on a shopping ban at the moment, however, I still have a running wish-list. When I do finally buy a few things I’ll refer to the list so that I stay on track and don’t end up with any unused pieces.
