Peace of Mango

Fast fashion retailers are always put under fire for their environment unfriendly business practices — this isn’t news. Some of us are well aware of the effects the industry brings on the environment, and some of us really do want to do something about it. However, with the lack of extra spending money, the prices of conscious pieces independent designers offer are a little unreachable sometimes. I get it. That’s why I get really excited when popular fast fashion retailers offer a conscious collection.

Mango is making peace with our needs of helping the environment, and this is important. Especially now when our government is telling us global warming is a marketing ploy (yes, 80 degrees in the middle of winter has nothing to do with global warming…). It’s not just that they’re offering the sustainable line, but it’s also about how it’s presented that made me appreciate the pieces even more. The Committed Collection is made up of entirely environmentally friendly fabrics, including organic and recycled cotton.

“The modern world is changing and so are we. We are working towards a more ethical and sustainable fashion future, one garment at a time.”

Leave it Red

Not too long ago, Frankie decided to go online. (Do you know how long I have waited for this???) For those of us not living in NYC, we were missing out on the goodies Frankie had to offer, and so as soon as I heard they went online, they also went on my Christmas wishlist. Thankfully, I got this Rarely tee! Rarely is known for their graphic tees with a pop of retro red in high quality cotton, and they were not kidding about high quality cotton. Rarely shirts come in one size, a size that fits very large on me. Rather than fighting it, I decided to embrace it and pair it with oversized sporty trousers from Mango and some classic Vans.
