Can you believe it?
StyleWise turns 6 years old TODAY.
And rather than spend a lot of time reflecting – because, honestly, I’ve done a bit too much of that lately – I want to open up the floor to you with…
Six Questions for Readers
1 | When did you first learn about exploitation in the fashion industry? How has it changed you?
About 6.5 years ago, which is why I started this blog!
2 | What are your favorite resources (podcasts, books, influencers, blogs, etc.) for discovering industry news, ethical fashion brands, and other ethical explorations?
I follow a lot of EWC members who share links on our forums, but I like Alden at EcoCult for her investigative work.
3 | What brands and styles are you currently into? What product is on your wishlist (ethical or not)?
I have been really into Camper’s funky shoes and over the top statement earrings, but nothing’s on my wishlist right now.
4 | What TV shows are you currently into?
Daniel and I are rewatching Friends. And I must admit that I’m sort of into the new Marie Kondo show on Netflix (though it’s making me anxious to clean everything).
5 | How do you take your coffee?
I like it with steamed oat milk. I’ve also been making “hot toddies” with ginger tea, honey, and bourbon whenever my sinuses or throat need some TLC.
6 | Where do you live? Where would you ideally like to live?
Charlottesville, Virginia. Long term, I think I’d like to live closer to family, so maybe in Florida? But I do love this part of the country.
To longtime readers and newbies alike: Thanks for following along! StyleWise has been and continues to be an interesting journey and I keep doing it because of people like you.
