Introducing Shop Fashion Spirit!

I am so excited to introduce a project I have been working on—Shop Fashion Spirit. The site features my own graphic designs printed on sustainably-produced tees, tanks, tote bags, and sweatshirts, as well as art prints. It really has been a labor of love! The designs are minimal, yet vibrant making them the perfect addition to any capsule wardrobe.

I love designing products, but I wanted to keep my shop aligned with the my goal of responsible consumption. With that in mind all the apparel and accessories on the shop are sourced from companies that are working toward sustainable and ethical manufacturing. More information on the companies can be found on the About page of the shop website. All products are printed on-demand so there is no excess stock produced and printing is done in eco-friendly, water-based inks.

We will also be donating 5% of our profits to charitable organizations every month including environmental, human rights and animal welfare organizations.

You can visit the shop at http://www.shopfashionspirit.com or via the Shop link in the menu at the top of this blog. And don’t forget to follow the shop on Instagram @shopfashionspirit.

And just for you blog readers, use discount code FSBLOG for 10% off your first order.

Definitely take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Happy and responsible shopping!

Graphic Paris

IMG_6939

Happy Thursday! I’m here to share another look from my spring/summer capsule wardrobe. When I was planning my wardrobe, I knew I wanted a versatile graphic tee that I could wear with just about anything. I was doubtful that I could find exactly what I wanted at the thrift store, but when I saw this gem I knew it was meant to be. I love the typography and the subject (Paris infinity!). It has turned out to be one of my favorite items from this season’s selection. It works equally well with a skirt or jeans, and coordinates well with the other items in my wardrobe.

For this look, I paired it with a Madewell skirt (thrifted), some nifty statement earrings (thrifted) and my beige lace-up block heels. These heels have been another surprisingly useful purchase. I feel like I am starting to be able to distinguish between something that I will wear frequently and something I should avoid purchasing, which is a good feeling.

How about you? Have you had any great thrift store finds lately?

I’ve been drawn to monochromatic ensembles lately. I feel like it automatically makes a statement to dress head-to-toe (or ankle?) in one color. I ordered this shirt from the French company, Sézane. They have beautiful clothing and it felt special to receive a package from France. Also it fit well with my goal of starting to build a wardrobe of better quality pieces.
