I began blogging back in 2011, when I decided to take a good hard look at the impact my clothing choices were having on people and the planet. I started sewing, researching, and scouring San Francisco boutiques and consignment stores to build a truly ethical wardrobe.

This blog is a celebration of ethical fashion and design, sewing, thoughtful consumption, and all things vintage. Without being too pedantic (I am a high school teacher, after all), I hope to empower the people out there who share my philosophy – namely, that looking good doesn’t have to come with such a high social and environmental price tag.
