I shopped in a Fashionista’s closet!

Dear Fair ladies,

I’ve talked with you about a couple of tricks to consume in a smarter and more fairer way. Because when you feel the urge to shop, there are still a lot of fair possibilities, one of them is shopping in another Fashionista’s closet, as you can read HERE 

About that..I’d like to share some outfits I made with a vintage Escada blazer I bought on Fashionup from another Fashionista (Blogster) : Lima Ché

I styled it in 2 different ways :

Last call for present hunters!

For all you wonderful fair people out there, I present to you one last treasure-hunt-tip for (your) man :

Go for wood !

Wooden accessories often create a cool and sophisticated appearance without a snobistic or a too-much-yuppie-look and that….. I like 🙂

What I also like is the wonderful story of three German friends who decided to built a label with wooden accessories out of a great idea of sustainability: for each product that you’re buying from Kerbholz , they plant a tree in Cen­tral America.

My man is already responsible for one watch-tree, what about yours? 🙂

A couple of my favorites! I bought my man the darkbrown one on the left, he loves it :-)

Not a hippie but a hottie!

‘Geiten wollen is a Dutch company who -like yours truly-  doesn’t like the ‘hippie image’ associated with fair and ecological clothing.  They do like to sell honest fashion; honest to humans and honest to nature. They give this message with shirts made out of organic cotton and with special attention to all prescriptions for the FAIR WEAR-Logo.

They have a lovely range of male shirts, which brings me to my weekly suggestion of my month theme : ‘Shop honest Presents for your Man’

(previous honest man suggestions : A fair boxershort and A shirt to safe an animal

I ordered my favorites of ‘Geitenwollen’ to make my man’s image fair, honest and totally hot! See for it yourself.
