i took these photos last week before the results of the election came in. i was feeling incredibly hopeful because i saw the polls showing a strong victory for hillary. i think one of my friends had just added me to pantsuit nation and i was feeling all warm and cozy in my little bubble, hearing positive stories about this historic moment for women. and i kinda laughed because while i don’t own any pantsuits, i certainly wear a lot of jumpsuits! of course, history was made, but not in the positive direction that we were hoping for. regardless of political affiliation, the election results were a shock for the entire country and so many vulnerable communities are now feeling very afraid for their futures. and very honestly, as i wrote in my last post, in the wake of all this, it does make this fashion blog feel rather pointless. but at the same time, i do work so very hard to support small, independent designers like the canadian-based noemiah who very kindly sent me this beautiful dusty rose jumpsuit from her fall 2016 collection. perhaps it’s not as revolutionary as other types of political action, but i’d like to think that supporting designers who produce their clothing thoughtfully and locally is a statement against the human rights and environmental abuses that are perpetuated by fast-fashion brands. i’ve always felt this way, and i will continue to promote what i believe in as long as i am able.
so with all of that being said, i would like to share a treat with you today! noemiah has kindly offered up the chance to win $200 to spend in her online shop. i absolutely love this jumpsuit because the wide legs give it the feel of a dress, but it still has the practicality and unexpected detail of being pants (which incidentally reminds me of this incredible hilarious/accurate video). it also comes in a really lovely dark denim, if you aren’t so daring as to wear this pretty shade of pink. i wear so much blue and so much denim, that i’ve been trying to challenge myself to wear a different color every now and again. and of course, there is so much more available from her collection!
