Counter-Culture, Consumption, and a Secondhand Solution

Linnea White

We're excited to share this style collaboration with local ethical blogger, Leah Wise of Style Wise Blog. We finally got to explore together why we believe in the secondhand solution! "We thought it would be fun to show how shopping ethically through secondhand purchases can result in creative, bright, offbeat style that runs counter to the current neutral-minimalist aesthetic. There is room for everyone in this movement." - via Leah's full post on her blog

Check out all the shots below by Tristan Williams of our collaboration with Leah, and be sure to check out her blog! It's an incredible resource for all things ethical and sustainable consuming. I've loved getting to know Leah, and learning so much from her, including our conversation on Earth Day of conscious consuming and Fashion Revolution Week.

We love this quote from Leah about secondhand shopping:

"At the end of the day, we are all responsible for making our own decisions, and we really can't hold other people accountable for how we decide to prioritize ethical credentials. But secondhand makes a lot of sense! It's abundant; readily available at consignment shops, thrift stores, swaps, and online marketplaces; and helps us refuse to buy into the idea that all purchases must be overtly entwined in our moral decision making. Secondhand shopping is smart and eco-friendly, yes, but it is, above all, pragmatic."

Happy Earth Day, darlings! Stop and smell the flowers - and the #fashionrevolution - today. Take some time to educate yourself on the benefits of slow fashion, of supporting sustainable fashion companies and practices (like shopping consignment!). We spent some time chatting with Leah Wise of the Style Wise Blog today at Common House for an Earth Day Conversation on Conscious Consuming. Check it out!
