Mom's Classic Trench

The best thing of having the same size of your mother is that you can literally share clothes with her. Every time I go to my parent's house, I ask my mom to leave the bunch of her unwanted clothes for me. You'll never know what surprise you might find in your mom's unwanted pile!

My mom found this single breast swing trench a bit snug, so I took it and style with a pair of "too snug" faux leather leggings of hers.

I always pick the cool items out and throw them into my wardrobe. For those that both of us do not need, I will donate them. Fashion is not about trend but about the style...Besides, even the trend comes back every ten years or so! So don't let your old garments go wasted! Think about recycling your mom/sister/dad/other friend's old clothes and make them yours with your charm and style!

All items from this outfit are cruelty-free.

Not Yours!

I'm NOT YOURS to eat, to wear or to entertain; I am an animal, and we are all animals!

So why treat other animals the way that YOU don't want to be treated? Are we superior to animals just because we are more civilized/ intelligent/ are capable of more power? So what is the difference between speciesism and racism?

Good questions to consider...And good sweatshirt to show off! Not yours sweatshirt from Nois, and they curate cruelty free designer items!

All items in this outfit are cruelty-free.

Cold Day Strolling...

The first day of 2016 was absolute a freezing day. Since I wanted to have a "grand opening" for the year (“开门红”,“红红火火”, meaning thriving from the first day of the new year in Chinese), I ignored the coldness and went out to take a picture with something red for my best luck.

All items from the outfit are cruelty-free.

Bags That Are Made From Recycled Plastic

Recycle your plastic bags…And you’ll get some amazing cruelty free and environmental friendly bucket bags in you hands!

I got this cute-ass paris bucket bag from Me-Dusa, an Israeli designer brand that brings cruelty-free and eco-friendly bags (the material of which come from recycled plastic) with super fun patterns. I’m really obsessed with these lovely designers these days who present us not only fun-looking but also ethical products. The production chain behind leather products involves not only animal cruelty, but more importantly, tremendous waste of resources. 

In the U.S. alone, animals raised on factory farms generate more than 1 million tons of manure per day — 3 times the amount generated by the country’s human population… How do they do with it? Oh yeah, they pour it into manure lagoon…Ewww, I know. Also, cattle, sheep, and goats emit methane, an infamous “greenhouse gas” and key contributor to global warming. 

When raising these animals for their skin, we are producing more waste than ever. On the opposite, using cruelty-free and eco-friendly products made from recycled plastic is like reusing your plastic bags for 10 times! Try a stylish and seriously durable vegan bag…because why not? :D
