LA-versary :: Guest Post by Jamillah of Made-To-Travel

Hi there Loudmouth readers!!! I'm Jamillah and I blog about ethical shopping and happy things over at Made-To-Travel. Always a pleasure to be a guest in Steph's Loudmouth Life :D.

People often think that becoming a more conscious consumer means you have to sacrifice style and cost, but I'm here to show you that is just not true!! Here are 2 of my most favorite places for affordable ethical fashion.

ASOS Green Room

(L-R: cut out dress $32.91 / kenga print pants $47.25 / pastel loose knit sweater $10.97 / army jacket with studs $27.85)

I think ASOS Green Room completely stomps the stereotype of granola crunchy fashion to the ground. I love the cool urban vibe and the on trend pieces ASOS always manages to find. Not only is ASOS Green Room full of fair trade and eco-conscious brands, ASOS actually makes their own eco-line out of vintage fabric called ASOS Reclaimed made proudly in the UK and it is AWESOME annnnnd affordable.

Threads for Thought

(L-R: janis tee $29 / paula dress $40 / lori top $29.99 / angelica tee $29.99)

Threads for Thought is where I go for basics with a little oomph. At Threads for Thought they believe in ethical manufacturing and sustainable fabrics they also have tons of items made in the USA. Threads for Thought also gives to 2 great charities the International Rescue Committee and Natural Resources Defense Council. And right now there is a crazy sale going on!! Enter SUMMERSALE at checkout and receive 25% off sale items! Yippeee! Limited time! So get going :).

I hope I dispelled maybe some myths you may have of ethical fashion. I know that starting the process of being a little more thoughtful shopper is really challenging--I went through those challenges too!!!

So if you're thinking about becoming a more conscious shopper but don't know how to start come by and read my Ethical Shopping 101 and feel free to email! I love getting requests!

Thanks so much Steph for having me back at your happy place! You rock the house.

And thanks for reading Loudmouthers!
