jumpsuit: philosofée // clutch: issey miyake (more colors and sizes available) // gladiators: sold out at free people; similar linked here & here // lippy: anastasia beverly hills liquid lip in the color “sepia”
Let’s give a warm welcome to Philosofée, new to America from Brazil! Focused on local production and fair labor conditions, the clothing is high quality and well-made, with subtle details (such as luxe, delicate metal grommets on the pockets) and an intentionally flattering design which always accentuates the woman’s waist. There are several vegan pieces to choose from, like this mod jumpsuit. I love the thick material with a little bit of stretch, the back and side pockets which lay flat against you and don’t add bulk, the front zipper detail, and the color blocking.
This was my first time wearing my gladiator heels since they were repaired by My Shoe Hospital. You guys… my dogs chewed these shoes to hell! Actually, it was just the left shoe. Every local shoe repair shop, including my tried and true spot in Dallas (who typically can do ANYTHING) turned me away, saying there was no hope and that they’d have to completely remake the shoe… But My Shoe Hospital came through and I literally can’t even tell they were ever ruined! They used vegan leather to repair the shoe, too… They’ve won me over.
Also- I know I’ve said it before (and I’ll say it again) but if you’re looking for high end, unique animal-friendly bags– I strongly urge you to check out the brand Bao Bao Issey Miyake (you can find the most options at Saks or MatchesFashion,– I think they are a little more affordable at MatchesFashion). While not for the faint of heart or the steadfastly preppy girl, these bags make a statement without trying too hard– they are like art. You’ll get a gagillion comments on your bag every time you go out, I swear!
That’s all, folks. Have a wonderful weekend, and don’t forget to shop small, shop fair, and shop ethically. XOXO
