Zappos Introduces Sustainable Shopping with Goods for Good

Goods for Good - Sustainable Shopping at Zappos

One thing I notice when out doing my usual sustainable shopping online and perusing topics to share here on my blog is the lack of any kind of guide integrated within your usual shopping sites to find those brands. There are so many these days who have taken the initiative to clean up their act when it comes to their manufacturing processes, and most major retailers online do carry their goods. However, it still takes a bit of research to find them if you’re a shopper with a conscience, and I know as well as you do that many of us just don’t have that kind of time. Sustainable shopping can be extremely time consuming! This is why I’m stoked to see that one household name retailer has taken action. Last month, Zappos introduced their Goods for Good initiative for those seeking to shop brands that care for the environment or give back in some way, and I’m really hoping other brands follow suit real soon, as more and more shoppers have become more aware of sustainable shopping (hear that, Revolve and Shopbop?)!

New Unique Denim Pieces for Summer from BLANKNYC

I’ve been a huge fan of BLANKNYC for quite some time now! My experience writing reviews and content for Denimology.com has been such a great way to become more familiar with several brands I only window shopped in the virtual sense before, and this one has stuck with me strongly since then. I’d say they bridge the gap between the premium market and the more affordable side of contemporary fashion—they aren’t cheap, but the prices are awesome considering the edgy creativity and quality that goes into this super fun brand. So in that sense, I find them very affordable! I have a few of their jeans (the Skinny Classique in Good Vibes being my favorite), but it’s their jackets (especially their embroidered ones) that I seriously want to fill my closet with! The Embroidered Vegan Leather Jacket in As You Wish was a hit last year and is one of my favorites, as is a blue tie dyed piece and the Sea of Flowers jacket (shown below), which I recently acquired! There are so many more still on my wish list, even discontinued ones that I’ve had bookmarked on both Poshmark and eBay for years! I have to avoid looking at their site too much or my list grows longer and longer…

Knee Length Bermuda Shorts for Work or Weekends

I guess it appears I’ll be swinging one post a week for a little while here, as things are getting quite slammed over in my neck of the woods…and I have a big vacation in August to look forward to (thank God FINALLY). The summer months are always pretty busy with it being the time I’m preparing new product on a website at work, along with the usual fun events and DJ gigs. With the latter, I love wearing whatever the heck I want and getting creative. Shorty shorts are never out of the question when the sun is blaring! However, for the former, although my job is pretty lax when it comes to personal style, I still prefer a more modest option. When it’s REALLY sweltering I’ll opt for a skirt, but I’m not much of a skirt person. Not every gal has a thigh gap so chafing is always an issue, and I usually prefer the security that a pair of jeans or shorts gives!
