I am SO EXCITED to announce a little adventure that we are embarking on at Route. For a while we have been talking about how to make ethical fashion more accessible, but still stylish and fresh. I love shopping second hand and recognizing great finds, I love buying local from artisans and designers that are doing effective and creative things in my neighborhood and I love buying ethically. Bottom line, I just love shopping in alternative ways that make the mainstream seem boring and “basic”, and I’m passionate about putting together outfits from all of these different sources that are functional, beautiful, and classic.
Sometimes buying ethically can be hard–either the pieces are boring, or the fantastically designed ones are out of an average person’s budget. Here’s where I want to come in:
In all of my second hand shopping I often come across pieces that are LEGIT finds. Things that I cannot believe I have gotten my hands on, or pieces that are just so beautiful that I can’t leave behind. So instead of keeping them for myself, I’ve decided to start sharing them with you.
Stay tuned for more blog posts and our instagram changing over the coming weeks as we add new sections and styles mixing in ethical with secondhand.
I can’t wait to share,
