things are never what they seem

taking a short break from fretting over the state of chinese manufacturing to post an outfit. being entrenched in the fashion world can sometimes feel a bit like not living in reality. though i'd like to think my interest in fashion has far more to do with the artistry of design and composition than "looking pretty," when one spends so much of one's time posting pictures of one's self, that can feel clouded.
so, a short rant... i take my brand loyalty pretty seriously. i support companies that have a bit more going for them than the usual "we sell things to make money" approach to life. so i get pretty down and disillusioned when my trust is shattered. if you have a brand you love both for the products they make and the way they make those products, please share it in the comments.

  6. You look gorgeous! Love the shoes. :)

    I don't know of any big stores that are not in it for the money but a lot of locally owned boutiques- I think they love and appreciate what they do. :)

  10. I can not believe those platforms are from Bakers! So affordable yet chic. I like brands like Steve Madden and Aldo. Where their products are affordable yet made well and accessible. Love this outfit Kristy!
