The truth is that fashion is a lot more than just trends. Fashion is a way of expression—it says a lot about you, what you like and who you are. Fashion is political. When you choose where you shop, what you wear and how you wear it, you are making a statement to the world around you. This summer, take a chance to be free and let loose. Be creative, be involved and let your own personal style represent you.

THE CONSCIOUS FASHIONISTAS

Vintage shopping is environmentally friendly and fun. You are recycling and re- using what is already in the world. Finding unique pieces that no one else will have can create an individual style. By wearing local you are supporting, growing and feeding your community. Being a firsthand consumer means you can get informed and know where your clothes come from and how they’re made.
