avoiding fast fashion like the plague when dressing for work with the elsa dress

Here’s the thing about having a 9-5 and being surrounded by unethical fast fashion everywhere you turn: being defeated is inevitable. Especially for magazine editors, assistants, models, coffee runners…et al, who have to be unbearably chic at all hours of the day. Preferably while sleeping too. Wearing the same outfit twice is blasphemy, and stepping out in an unrecognized designer brand is quite a triumph. Well, I’m here to tell you that if triumph over Forever 21 and H&M closet filth is what you seek, it’s about to get allot easier.

Replace the garbage with local and vintage. This is nothing new, but the sheer act of breaking bad habits might come as easily as getting a root canal 100 years ago. Just do it. I took the plunge and landed right in the thrones of Elsa & Me, an absolutely fabulous local brand out of NY that produces the Elsa dress for 9-5 gals who prefer organic cotton over crumbling toxic buildings in Bangladesh. From there, I was buzzing with excitement over slowly replacing my junk wardrobe with carefully selected wardrobe staples and treasures like thrifted Jeffrey Campbells, a vintage watch, vegan leather bag, and fair-trade turquoise necklace. Avoid the need for an intervention. There is no fast luxury fashion rehab in Arizona. So just get to it!
