Twitter is a marvelous thing. I’ve been twittering for quite some time and have found it a great way to meet new Internet friends, learn more about things that interest me, and find out about new boutiques. Which is how I found this one, Modern Sage. (side note: you should seriously be on twitter if you’re not already. In the beginning it can be confusing and a time suck, but over time you’ll fall into a routine. I’ve met so many wonderful people and interacted with boutiques & designers in ways I never had before. I also love to connect with readers this way – we give each other shopping advice, talk about purchases…it’s fun!!)
Anyway, back to this fabulous new boutique, and exclusive deal for YOU. It was initially the clothes that drew me into Modern Sage; they feature some unknown (to me) designers like Risto Bimbiloski, Kerry Cassill, and Miriam Ocariz, but it was their manifesto that made me fall in love:
WE BELIEVE THAT FASHION IS DEFINED AS LIVING, BREATHING, WEARABLE ART MADE WITH QUALITY MATERIALS AND CRAFTSMANSHIP.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE FUTURE OF FASHION IS EVOLVING & BECOMING PART OF A NEW PARADIGM OF SUSTAINABILITY AND POSITIVE CHANGE.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO EDUCATE AND BRING AWARENESS TO THE STORY BEHIND THE CLOTHING: FROM THE METHODS USED TO PRODUCE IT TO THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT, AND ULTIMATELY TO THE IMPACT IT HAS ON THE EARTH. WE ARE BEING CALLED UPON TO CHANGE OUR HABITS AND LIVE INTO OUR VALUES DOWN TO THE WAY WE SHOP AND WHAT WE WEAR.
AND FINALLY, WE BELIEVE THAT YOUR ACTIONS & HOW YOU EXPRESS YOURSELF ON THE OUTSIDE ARE A REFLECTION OF WHAT IS INSIDE. WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD, WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO RADIATE & SHINE, YOU DO GOOD THINGS…YOU EVOLVE.
WE INTEND TO HELP YOU DO THAT AT MODERN SAGE.
I’m 1,000,000,000% behind them on this, which is why I also started Green Grechen. No matter what your husband or boyfriend says, fashion IS important, and DOES have an impact. It’s up to us to determine what we want that impact to be.
So, to give you a little push in the eco-fashion direction, Modern Sage is offering you 30% off your first order through 5/15 with code GOGRECHEN. There are lots of great affordable pieces by Fleur Wood, Del Forte organic denim, and Kerry Cassill, but just imagine your self for a moment, in these AMAZING prints by Risto Bimbiloski:
