Curated Closet – Challenge

Over the summer I have been participating in a  “Fast Fashion Fast” hosted by youtuber Verena Erin from My Green Closet. During this challenge participants try to avoid purchasing any fast fashion branded clothing, or clothes in general, in favor of more ethically/eco/fair trade brands.

Fast Fashion has major impacts on our world environmentally, economically, and continues to trap garment workers in developing countries into poorly run and dangerous working conditions, some including child labor. For more information you can watch this good documentary called The True Cost on Netflix!

Marzia’s Reelstyle June Box – Review

Hey friends! If you need to know something about me, it’s that I LOVE surprises. Maybe not the socially awkward surprise birthday parties, or the “Surprise! I am dragging you out of bed at 5am to go for a run!” kind of surprises, but anticipated surprises are definitely my kind of thing.

Marzia often posts style videos, lookbooks, favorites, and other feminine and fun videos. She recently began selling her own clothing designs as well as published her own horror novel overseas. She recently announced that she would be creating her own  6-month subscription box for $20 and I was SO there! I love Marzia and thought I’d give June’s box a chance to see if I enjoyed it and would continue. You can check out her page here: Reelstyle CutiePieMarzia At the time, Marzia was offering 6 months for $100 or pay-as-you-go for $20 a month. I picked the single month before committing, shipping was $5. I ordered mid-June and the box was shipped at the end of the month and finally arrived on my doorstep yesterday! So, let’s have a look!
