David Lerner high-waist coated leggings | made in the US
Everlane linen shirt (gift for review) | size 8
Freda Salvador Lock D’orsay flats | 25% off this weekend at Freda Salvador with code LETSBEFRIENDS
It’s Fashion Revolution Week this week, do you know who made your clothes? Today, I’m wearing the Everlane linen shirt, which although it is basic, is still good for a white linen shirt, and long enough to wear with leggings. And made by Everlane, whom I trust for their transparency.
I haven’t been able to find much information at all about David Lerner, although I do know that they produce most items in the US and are based in NYC. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these leggings though, and have been super-impressed by the quality and just how well they look all the time. They’re 100% opaque and just look a little more “fancy” than my regular JP leggings that I also love. They’re also ridiculously high-waisted, like almost up to my bra, which I find insane, but also REALLY like LOL. So these leggings aren’t necessarily sustainable or eco-friendly in any way, but damn if I’m not going to wear them as often as possible for as long as possible, so I’m going to MAKE them sustainable…
Finally the shoes. If you haven’t yet, and you love Freda Salvador, get over to their website NOW for a pair of shoes during their Friends and Family sale because sizes are selling out super-fast. I want to buy all the Freda Salvador shoes, but I can’t, nor do I need them, but I’m a huge fan now after my Lock flats. They’re beautiful, so comfortable (no break-in at all), and add a ton of interest to any outfit (even really boring ones). AND, bonus, they’re handmade in Spain in a tiny family run factory.
(via Instagram yesterday and that “sheepskin” in the background, is fake…)
I hope you follow me on Instagram already, but if you don’t, yesterday I posted about my favorite Melissa Joy Manning earrings and how important it is to also consider who made our jewelry. I’ve been wearing Melissa Joy Manning earrings forever mostly because I love the simple, minimal styles, but also because she creates nearly everything with recycled metals, which is pretty much the best way to be sustainable in my opinion. There’s SO MUCH jewelry out there; recycling it by melting it down and re-creating with it is a wonderful way to give it new life.
These earrings are for me, because they’re so small no one else really sees them, but that’s okay, and just the way I like it 🙂
Oh, and speaking of earrings, I’ve got a pair of MJM hoops and Me & Ro silver lotus earrings up for sale on slowre, among other AMAZING new arrivals if you haven’t taken a peek lately. It’s also open for consignment if you have anything to send my way! I’ve already received some goodies from a few of you, but need more!!
