ecofashion_12

 

Hello Everyone! In my last post from this series, I talked about Feminism and everything you need to know about it. I really loved writing about something important and also relevant to this blog and the world. In today’s post, I wanted to talk about Eco-Friendly Fashion. What it is, what brands are active with it, and a lot of more information that can help you live a more environmentally friendly life more easily. As I was writing this, I realized how uneducated I was on this topic, so I did a lot of research, for this post but mainly for myself. If you wanted to read more on this topic, at the very bottom of this post, there is a work cited section. After you read it, let me know your thoughts in the comments. Enjoy!

Spring Clothing Haul!

IMG_2193-2.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I went shopping….again. But this time I went to ROMWE, so it doesn’t count. Romwe is a website which sells really cheap and really cute clothes. I have both things from there before, to test it out, but I bought a couple more last week. This is a try on haul. In case you were wondering, I am 5 ‘4″ and all the clothes are a size small, but they are kind of big on me. With each outfit, I listed the price but they were all under the price of $14. Except for one item, which was a special occasion item. I’ve had good experiences with ROMWE before, and I’m really happy with how the clothes came.

Hello Everyone! During my Spring Break, I picked up a lot of things. I went to different souvenir shops and went shopping in Times Square. I did spend more than usual on some items, but I was on vacation, so it’s fine. I listed the price and where I got them, for each item. This is a collective haul, so it isn’t just clothes. And this is a pretty small haul, but spring is starting so get ready for more hauls and shopping. Enjoy!

Aesthetic Fashion Haul!

IMG_5420-2.jpg

 

Hello Everyone! I’m going to be very honest. I haven’t gone shopping… that much. But I did do a little bit of shopping last week. And I thought that everything I got, together, was  aesthetically pleasing. Most of the items are from Macy’s and ROMWE. I love ROMWE❤️❤️so much. I don’t have that many items from ROMWE, because I wanted to make sure that that website was real and the clothes were of good quality. AND IT WAS! And of course, I only bought clothing items that had a reasonable price.

Hello Earthlings! A while ago I made a pair of adorable bunny slippers. I made them a while ago and am just now making a post about them, but they are still very cute to make. By now, my original pair of slippers are deformed from wearing them too often and from age.

DIY PJ shorts

Something I like to do for birthdays is make pajama shorts. I use their own shorts to make a pattern and trace that on the fabric. But before I start, I taking their measurements, waist and height of shorts. Usually I use a knit fabric which is their favorite colors. It’s the best way to get them something heartfelt and fun (at least sewing is fun  for me). Buying fabric is much cheaper than buying something. Here are some pictures of shorts I’ve made and an abridged version of instructions.

Making a Polyester Lace Cardigan

My Grandmother has a huge stash of fabric in her house. Knits, lace, and so many more that I’ve lost count. While I was visiting her, we decided to make a snug cardigan for my sister.(Although she has sensitive skin so I will probably keep it) I made a list of instructions and included pictures, ENJOY!

Upcycled Cat Raincoat

CLICK THE HEADING FOR MORE!

One of my favorite things to do is my clothing for pets. He actually lets me put clothes on him.IMG_1989

He never goes outside but he wears it to be in style. It is a basic shawl with a hood and a button in the front to keep it from falling off.

IMG_1998

I cut two quarter circles and sewed them write sides together and then flipped them inside out. Then I attached the hood and sewed the button in.

If you are going to iron any type of material like this, I recommend putting another piece of fabric on top to prevent burning.

Upcycled Off the Shoulder Shirt

CLICK ON THE HEADING FOR MORE.

This was one of my favorite up- cycling project ever. I took a oversized mens shirt and made it into a off the shoulder shirt. It took me about an hour to make.

IMG_2908

The shirt was on sale at Walmart when we bought it.  The fabric is really soft and flowy. I love the red Hawaiian print. it’s a high to low shirt and has short sleeves. First I cut the top of the mens shirt off and trimmed the bottom to make it high to low. Then, I cut the sleeves using scraps.  I sewed the sleeves to the main piece and then sewed elastic across the entire hemmed piece. Lastly, I hemmed all the other edges.

I normally wear it during the summer because of the fabric and length. Jeans and shorts go well with it. In the future, I would probably add straps to the actual shirt. This shirt was really fun to make.

Color Blocked Sweatshirt

It can get a little boring during the summer. I didn’t have time to go to the store to get fabric. I looked in my fabric drawer and I saw a bag of scraps. There were a couple of large scraps. And I love to up-cycle so I thought it would be a good idea to make a quick little shirt.

IMG_4229Before I made this sweatshirt, I made a comfy cross sweater. I had large scraps left over from it and made a color blocked sweatshirt. In a way you could say this sweatshirt is up-cyled from scraps.  I had a lot of fun making this and I skipped a lot of hemming because of the color blocked. I originally hadn’t planned for the colors to be like they are, but because of the size of the scraps.  Along with pictures of the sweat shirt.
IMG_4217

The front top portion is red and the bottom portion is black with a red pocket. The back top portion is black and the bottom is red. I cut the pieces extra big and then downsized from there. I love it so much because it’s loose and I can wear it in different types of weathers. It is thick but because of the neck hole and sleeves, it doesn’t over heat me. It’s made from a regular knit fabric. The colors look really good together.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
