Coffee Chat Vol. 39
Yay, first Coffee Chat post of the year! I really love writing the Coffee Chat series but with my new shopping ban in place, I just felt like it’d seem hypocritical to talk about sales when I’m promoting ethical and sustainable closets. Going forth, I’ll be taking that section out and instead expanding on my wishlist where I tend to talk more about pieces (usually on sale anyway) from ethical brands (for those of you who are in shopping moods and didn’t ban themselves from it this year like I did).
