  • Life x Style 055 (Navy is the new black)

    As much as I live in black, even I’ll admit it’s refreshing to sway down the spectrum a few notches. Still a neutral, navy seems to scream ‘mix & match me with everything else you own.’ {please}
    A day dress in a neutral hue like navy is like a magic wand to me. You can mix just about anything with it and it’s bound to look good and put-together. And this one dress happens to be made by one of my favorite do-good conscious fashion brands Marie Hell- made in the USA, eco-freindly, wrinkle-resistant fabric, sustainably manufactured from wood pulp. http://bit.ly/mariehelldress. See more on them here, here, here, here, here and here.

    A timeless color. Classic lines. The proportions of a well-made, well-fitting dress are perfectly balanced, never overwhelms- just compliments what you already have going on under there. Simply put, you can wear it forever. really.

     
    Here, I took it way down to a casual feel with a vintage wool hat and clunky suede boots (messy, undone hair helps for exaggerating the low-key ambiance). I would elevate this dress with a black le smoking jacking or a boyfriend cut blazer and high-heel pointy booties (hair slicked back nice and sleek).

     

    I live by the principal of having a wardrobe heavy in transitional pieces, so I don’t have to completely change over my wardrobe when the seasons change (who has time for that!?). The key to fall dressing is having versatile pieces that will transition throughout the seasons, plus or minus the extra layers- depending how far North or South you live.

    Get involved. Become part of the movement for a healthier, more sustainable fashion world. I believe that together we can change the face of fashion.  Wear what you love and wear what empowers you. Also consider where your clothes were made and who made them. Your purchase may empower the person who made them (or not). Shop wisely.

    Every purchase is a vote. Make yours count. Dress in clothing you love and that have a positive impact on you and the rest of the world.

    *The items featured on this blog are what I consider sustainable fashion and/or are items I have owned for a very long time- which I would then consider a sustainable fashion choice simply for the longevity of it.
