Top 5 Reasons Why Sustainable Living is Dope AF

Five reasons why you should consider jumping on the sustainability wagon

iFast fashion is basically the swamp monster from Fern Gully

It's a fact that the garment industry is one of the biggest contributors to pollution. In Trumpland, we may see a lot of EPA standards lowered in the name of corporate profitability. Buying vintage or handmade goods is an easy way to make an impact. Look for gifts on sites like Etsy (or House of Correia : )) and hunt for your closest vintage or thrift store before you waltz into Forever21. The less profitable fast fashion is, the more the gov will invest in sustainable operations.

Fast Fashion Clothes are Total Crap

We have all been guilty of this convo. The one where you are talking about garment care and you mention that you cant wash or dry that 4.99 tee you got because it gets totally fucked.  Fast fashion isn't meant to last. AT ALL. It's meant to be cheap. When your clothes are made with care they are made to last. In turn saving you money, and getting satisfaction out of a purchase well used and loved (duh!)

You're spending your money on it - you should LOVE it!

Who doesn't love a story about a good find? The hunt and capture of the perfect bag or unicorn skirt that you've been wishing for...no good story ever started with 'Oh this? I got it at H&M' Have an adventure behind the treasure. One of our favorite parts of hearing why a customer loves their new HOC piece is the story that draws them to it in the first place.

Your Coffee is ethical, why isn't your Bag?

Sustainable living and clean eating is HAPPENING. There are so many options and Pinterest boards and dope vendors preaching about running lean in all aspects of your life. The same attitude should apply to our accessories. Think of it as a juice cleanse for the planet. And your closet!

You will Feel and Look Fly AF

Doing things that are good for the world make you feel good, Its hard to control a lot of things that happen to us, but buying from small business who care what they are selling because they care about the well being of their customers is a sure way to feel like your heading in the right direction.

Here's Some Crucial Life Lessons we Learned from watching this Cinema Classic currently on Netflix

David bowie is a god and needs to have a Daytime Courtroom drama where he doles out Swift & Fierce Walkoffs of Justice.

Attitude is everything, especially when you and your Archenemy are both Rocking Snakeskin.

It's okay to unplug, and wear dope fuzzy sweaters.

Friendtime is Crucial, Seatbelts are Not. 

Sometimes you just need to Let Go and Let Hansel

Life isn't all about how you look, but have a good Selfie Face ready at all times.

Unique Fashion Exhibit, ReWind, Wants to Transfer You Back and Into the Future

When I walked into the opening of "ReWind," the current exhibition at Crowell's Fine Art Gallery, I was swept by a wave of nostalgic exuberance.” – Don Wilkinson, Painter and Art Critic

ReWind is an exciting collaboration between Celebrity Photographer, Dana Tarr and Fashion Designer, Keriann Correia. The project is a photographic statement of the effects that modern technology has on our society as a whole, particularly the millennial 'live fast, die young' culture. ReWind is set in a dark, sexy, not so far off future with the protagonist being presented in high-impact, vibrant imagery. 

Check out this Slideshow of Exclusive behind the scenes photos!

Our WCW this week in Elspeth Beard. Not only is her name badass, she's one of our heroes.

In 1984 at only 24 years old, she became the first woman to take a solo ride around the world on her used 1974 R 60/6 BMW Motorcycle.

That plaid, that jacket, those boots. SWOON. 

Pretty sure she would have Rocked the Shit out of our  Wild Child Bag
