Izzy Lane, cruelty free wool




If you listen to Peta and/or vegans, there is no such thing as ethical wool. I always knew that was false. Well, always... more like since I carpooled with a young man who was carrying wool from his mother's rescue lamas to a small wool mill. Yep, even rescue animals need a little shearing for their well being. That's how the idea of buying yarn from rescue animals as a way to support them started to grow on me. But, three years later, I still don't know how to knit!

Piccadilly


My fall capsule is coming to an end! I'm really glad I managed to make it last all three months, though, I need to admit I am starting to be a little cold some days and I'm almost excited about wearing my winter coats.

Swedish stockings, sustainable hosiery


Even if I try to persist, there's always a time when it is no longer possible to walk around with bare legs under our latitudes. Every year, the same thing happens. I pile up stockings that I will joyfully rip one after another until the next spring. Oh the pantyhose! A pure jewel of the petrochemical industry... My own consumption alone is alarming, but knowing we are millions to buy tights, wear them a few times and then throw them away gives me shivers down my spine. That's the thought that made me want to look for an eco-friendly hosiery brand.

Luxury bags


One of the biggest dilemmas I'm facing since I decided to have a more eco-friendly wardrobe is knowing if I was going to keep all my luxury goods or not. A part of me thinks I should be an example and not wear them anymore, but the other part thinks it doesn't matter so much. Luxury brands sell well anyway and what I wear won't make much of a difference. On the other hand, buying new stuff, even the most eco-friendly brands, to replace things that are in a perfect condition doesn't seem like the most sustainable option to me. So for now, I chose to keep everything. Every new purchase though, will have to be ethical! Meanwhile, here is an outfit with my LV rubber boots and Mulberry crossbody.

Oooooh, starting today, I'm allowed to do some shopping! I can't tell you how excited I am! But for now, it's still about posting fall capsule looks.

Pleats and denim


Vintage, denim, pleats... today's outfit is a denim men's shirt and my mom's pleated skirt.

plaid maxi scarf



Aaaand, it's now really time to take out the scarves and chunky knits. At least that's what I thought when I found my windshield frozen this morning. I went back inside real fast to grab my maxi plaid scarf and wrap myself in it.
