Fashion Over Reason: When Spring is Shy

When Spring is Shy

Zady coat, Helmut Lang dress, Chloé boots, Bottega Veneta bag, Trash & Vaudeville pants

I cannot even tell you how annoyed I currently am at the month of April. It didn't start off very promising, with an April Fool's day fit for, well, a fool, and while I'm all too familiar with the 'April showers, May flowers' mantra, there's nothing out there about showers taking the form of snowflakes. Ugh.

No end in sight, yet still I know it's near (May, can you hear me?!).

In considering the fact that April has been under-performing, I feel as though I can take it because the winter that just ended blessed us with utter clemency and I reckon that filing a complaint now to Mother Nature would be akin to reprimanding a recovering sugar addict indulging in a candy bar after completing a CrossFit program. So I'm cutting you a break, oh mighty weather Mother!

Also, springtime being trigger-shy basically means that I get to wear this black Zady coat (which is on sale, btw!) a little while longer. If you're not familiar with this brand, do yourself and the planet a favor and get acquainted. I began a conversation during my ThredUp post from a few weeks ago about my environmentalist tendencies and my desire to move towards conscious consumerism and slow fashion.

If you align with me on these convictions, then I urge you to discover Zady, because their brand values encapsulate everything we should think about when making a purchase, but too often turn a blind eye to.

Stay tuned for more Zady-ness on the blog, I have some of their spring pieces that I can't wait to show you!
