  • So I haven't really been shopping that much for the last couple of months. For many reasons. I caught this sudden itchy feeling of claustrophobia against all the stuff I have everywhere in my apartment. Everywhere theres a place to put things, theres a bunch of useless stuff. Including my closet with nothing to wear, but always too full to keep organized. I dont understand why this itchy feeling of claustrophobia haven't come before - but first and most importantly, I guess its because I have finally understand that stuff doesn't make me any happier (neither prettier).

     

     

    It took some effort in the beginning to not wastefully spend my money unwisely. But now I feel my whole point of view is changing so drastically. I understand the importance of stuff, the importance of only buying the necessary and the stupidity of thinking that you always need something more. Never having enough. I am also understanding better how important it is to reflect, multiple times if necessary, before you buy something. Have I been missing it in my life, will it be useful, and for how long? If not, its not going to do me any good. If not necessary it will only make me waste the hours I worked to earn the money I am then spending. Hours of my life. For a thing. Is this so called thing worth my precious time? 

     

    I have always been interested in the so called fashion. Clothes, decorations, make up. So I am finding solutions. Sustainable options and a new awareness on my own style and what would suit me in the long run. Not just this season. Something that screams me, for years to come. Something that will make me feel good every time I put it on! I dream of a closet with only clothes like that - sustainable options that I can heartfully be proud of - while inspiring others to do the same! Showing others that sustainable and "old clothes" can still be highly fashionable. The same with the interior of my home - which luckily already has its own sense of style. Our style, with personal decor bought in second hand stores, from my grandparents loft and some newly bought. Our home differs from any fashion magazine but it definitely has its own style that we feel completely at home with <3

     

    So on my road to a more sustainable lifestyle I am collecting options while I am enjoying the ride through each page, finding clothes that will suit me in the long run, not just buying for the next event. 

     

    So here is my currant tree favorite sustainable options online.

    All of them is to die for. Honestly. Fashionable does not mean wasteful. 

     

     

    1. THE REFORMATION. This was the first sustainable clothing line I found that I absolutely fell in love with at once. It was like my heart skipped a beat. Cliche but no joke. Everything they have is SO BEAUTIFUL. They have these absolute amazing day and evening dresses, the perfect jeans && the coolest tops. Everything is so well done. The only downside, at least for Norwegians, is that theres a big expense to ship the clothes to Norway. This is ofc our countries downside, and not these amazing people behind this brand. Go check them out! 

     

     

    2. SISSEL EDEBO. Danish designers<3 I recently found this clothing line on Instagram. And WOW, it was love at first sight, again. So much for the monogamy. The whole concept is truly amazing. They make all the clothes from vintage saris. I truly love the idea behind the brand! Every girl must love the beautiful colorful saris of india, right? Not only are the clothes such a good quality item - but their so beautifully done into kimonos, skirts, tops, dresses.. Not to mention that due to being made from vintage saris; every garment is one of a kind, our two of a kind. These are truly everything, including that the prices are both affordable and fair <3

     

     

    3. SOBO. This is a online store collecting beautiful pieces from vintage stores all over the world. Perfect for everyone who doesn't have a vintage store nearby. And to those that are so highly craving that expensive purse that your blogger idol is carrying around? Here you can go and find your own expensive vintage purse! right here!  Ps. They dont only have expensive vintage clothes - and even though you cannot afford the most pricy once it is highly comforting to look at all these beautiful clothes you can work your ass of for without hurting neither more animals or the planet. Go vintage! 

     

    ​Do you have any favorite online sustainable fashion brands? I would love to get more inspo!
