Spring has sprung and to say that I’m overjoyed is an understatement. ‘Tis the season to dig out the floral dresses from your wardrobe and shave your legs! This is also the time I go online-window shopping. I recently discovered Reformation, a women’s clothing brand based in Los Angeles, and have been crushing on their apparel ever since! Producing clothing that celebrates the perfection that is the female form, it seems they can’t go wrong and I have yet to find something that I’m not 100% in love with. As if they couldn’t get better, they are a sustainable fashion brand who are completely focused on their impact as a fashion brand, both environmentally and socially. On their website, they describe themselves to be totally invested in sustainable manufacturing practices, using green building infrastructure to minimize their waste, water, and energy footprints. They use sustainable fabric such as tencel and viscose, and recycled materials sourced from vintage clothing and deadstock. Each garment’s resource usage is available on every page of their website. Those employed to make the clothing are also well taken care of; Reformation pays their hourly workers above minimum wage and provide health benefits for their full-time employees. They host factory tours so their customers can meet the people who make their clothes. P.S Reformation also invests in 250 massages a month so that their factory team can de-stress and focus better. BEST!
”Being naked is the #1 most sustainable option. We’re #2.” – Reformation
Since I almost exclusively wear dresses in spring and summer, I thought I’d share some of my favourite Reformation dresses:
Floral? In spring? Groundbreaking.
Nothing says spring to me quite like floral prints. I’m in love with these two dresses; the prints are minimal but exquisitely feminine. I’ll take one in every colour, please!
Possibly the best mini dresses I have ever seen. Super simple and almost doll-like.
The classic little black dress never goes out of style and should definitely feature in your spring wardrobe. Great for a night on the town!
When did I become obsessed with yellow? And bows?!
THE NAKED DRESS
Carrie Bradshaw inspired, no doubt. I’ve just started watching Sex and the City for the first time and instantly thought of the ‘naked’ dress when I found this.
Denim is always an option, okay?
THAT’S A WRAP
Perfect for the 30 degree weather in Jo’burg at the moment. 1 2 3 (un)dressed!
