An Honest Rothy's Flats Review (+ $20 Off Your 1st Pair!)

An Honest Rothy's Flats Review (+ $20 Off Your 1st Pair!)

OVERVIEW

Rothy’s, a sustainable shoe brand based in San Francisco, seemed to have gone viral overnight. As of May 2019, I see women outside left and right wearing #rothysinthewild, almost daily now. They certainly have a unique product line - sustainably-made, moisture-wicking, machine-washable woven flats and shoes that are made out of recycled plastic bottles. But is it worth all the hype? Based on a personal need for a new pair of pointed black flats, I jumped on the Rothy’s wagon and gave them a try, and am now here with an honest review of their pointed toe flats. I’m hoping this review will be helpful in deciding whether or not Rothy’s is right for you. If you already own a pair, I also share a few of my current favorites, as well as pro-tips on washing and caring for your Rothy’s!

The Edit | Look No. 8: Black & Leopard

The Edit | Look No. 8: Black & Leopard

Hi everyone! Bringing to you another conscious style edit on the blog today - featuring this black Reformation maxi dress, paired with a bold leopard print clutch and D’Orsay pumps.

This Reformation maxi dress is one of my go-to’s when I’m in a rush in the morning. I’ve been wearing it around once a week so far, so I’ve already gotten my money’s worth for it. It’s so easy to put an outfit together with this dress given its neutral color (you already know that black goes with everything). I added leopard print accents to this outfit, which totally transformed the look in a matter of seconds!

Brand Spotlight: Grana

Brand Spotlight: Grana

Bringing you a brand spotlight on Grana today, a sustainable fashion label that I admire for their high quality basics and business transparency!

WHAT MAKES GRANA SO SPECIAL?

Grana has a lean and sustainable online business model. They source straight from the fabric mills and have streamlined their processes to reduce the number of times the garments exchange hands in their supply chain. They’re able to keep prices low this way, with only a 2x markup on price!

Grana places small quantity orders to avoid wasting labor and fabric. They also have a Code of Conduct that is expected to be followed if you partner with them. This is because they uphold values such as providing ethical treatment of its workers in a safe working environment and paying fair wages to them. The Code talks about fair labor conditions and labor rights, as well as minimum supply chain expectations revolving around social conduct and impact. Grana is committed to improving their social impact, acknowledging that it will take time, resources, and effort. I absolutely LOVE when a company is transparent but humble enough to admit that they still have a long way to go!
