Tryin' Something New

I am someone who likes to try new things in the detail.  I like consistency|structure| vacuuming| right angles| smooth surfaces clean to the touch| a Clean closet| school books in piles| pens categorized by style| jewelry displayed like a boutique| layout of my bedroom changing at least once a month.  When my bedroom is a mess-  I am doing too much. 
My consistencies have always been Church, family, and dance classes.
All else are important details.
Following these amazin' pictures is a short introduction written 4 you by me on Ethics in Fashion & RMS.
So here I'm trying something new.
That I surprisingly feel very comfortable in.
The posing felt pretty natural.
... then I started jumping
Being that I just got off crutches. Sustained injury #2 will NOT be from jumping in heels, thank you.
 I had a lot of fun mixing New investement [FP pants $36] & an Old find [Madden Girl Shoes $7]!
Love this shot! Brings me back to ballet love.
Jewelry c/o (RMS)
I hand ombred this silk blouse!

Sunnies & Pants| Free People

Shoes| Madden Girl via Marshalls

So at the end of the day I always have to ask myself: am I copying the behaviors of the world? Romans12:1-2 My fashion is my artistic expression, not my obsession for lust.


Let's Talk Ethics & Fashion!
_________________________________________________________________________________

Ethical Jewelry Stalk. I have found a great new online jewelry website RMS(Rock My Socks).  I put their banner on the right side of my blog- they are planning on going ethical!  
Interview

"We are not[currently] given information as to what goes on in the manufacturing factories.  But you are correct, we are planning to work with designers (locally) in the future to ensure that all the products we provide to customers will be ethically sound."
--Shop RMS Cofounder
Lovin’ It. This is what I like to see! Retailers taking a stand, and going towards a future where all their products have supply chain transparency, ZERO tolerance for human trafficking, fair labor conditions & workers rights.  We also watched F21 make this transition a few years back, and California enact S.B. 657
Captivating article from the UK on fair trade: "Fair Trade goes Fashion"
Obstacles. This summer I have been doing research with Dr. Trina Hamilton on ethics in the diamond trade (Tiffany&Co. is actually quite proactive in the ethical jewelry world). I am beginning to see how many brands join ethical committees. Many of these companies provide little ethically related information for the online consumer.  It is known that ethical products are more expensive than unethical due to lower wages for the workers in unregulated conditions(among others factors).  

But what are a few cents compared to a woman your age being able to have a break in her 10 hour-day shift? 
Or adequate lighting at her work station? 
Or wages which are fair to the amount of work she labored?

How much are you paid... compare this to her;  Support fair trade;  Support global justice in factories.

Fantastic.  I support RMS because they are going towards a more ethical direction. I describe them now as girly:edgy:affordable. With our help and support, ethical will be added in there!  Check them out! Shipping is only $3
Check 'em out & send 'em a quick message letting them know you support them going ethical & look forward to it! ^_^





What do you think?
Let's push for change together!
