    Lingerie-as-outerwear series: neat knit and vintage wool

    Winter is already in the air in Montreal but I am hopeful that somewhere in the world, today’s outfit will be appropriate. Actually, I can’t say that I’ll stop wearing skirts and camisoles until we reach negative temperatures. I have been having an intense style transition during the past year and interestingly, pink pieces keep coming my way. Usually, I am more of a black and white kind of gal. Pink isn’t what I naturally gravitate around (despite all the pink lingerie I featured this year) and I am often worried that pale colours will look bland against my skin.

    On the Glowing side or an attempt to live ethically on a budget

    Hello! My name is Wen and I am a recently graduated student with a passion for sustainable fashion. I have been a blogger for the past 3 years on Comics Girls Need Bras and this first blogging journey led me to be more aware of the impact our fast consumption of absolutely everything on the world around us. I come from a middle class family which originate from a poorer background. Because of that, I didn’t grow up following the last fashion trends and fast fashion has been a big part of my closet growing up. That being said, I was not spoilt with clothes and material goods. For the…
