Let’s talk conscious outerwear for a moment.
About a month ago, I was introduced to a new brand specializing in PETA–approved vegan leather jackets and trendy, fit-conscious outerwear. As it turns out, Coalition LA does not only carry a great selection of the highest quality items, but also is helping build awareness around vegan fashion.
I have to admit, while I’m only getting older (27th birthday approaching soon), I am becoming more and more aware of what I should put IN and ON my body. It’s also no longer only about me as well. Having lived in Napa Valley (or California in general) and being around people and businesses that are striving to help the environment (from preserving the water consumption to solar power) as much as possible has definitely rubbed off on me in a good way.
Trust me, I know I just jumped from talking about vegan clothing to environment friendly practices, however, I still believe it’s all connected. Being aware of our actions and what decisions we make on daily basis should always be our priority in my opinion.
Having the opportunity to work with Coalition LA was just another reminder for me that it’s good to be aware of not only our own well-being, but also other people, animal or the planet in general.
What are your beliefs on this matter?
Would you try wearing more conscious outerwear if you knew it is doing good for others, not only yourself?

A few words about this Shein romper ($14!). I decided to go for it after I’ve seen a couple of other people wear it. However, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning. You see, when ordering from Shein, you SHOULD ALWAYS read the reviews and check the sizing. I know I always do and that saves me a lot of trouble and disappointment. So, when I first saw this gingham romper, I thought I have to get it. I mean, the product photos were adorable. Then when I read the reviews I started to have concerns. Okay, it’s only $14 but if most people agree that the fit of this romper is not the best, then what’s the point? I even went further and asked some other bloggers who were sporting this romper to see what they thought of it. After acknowledging all the facts and opinions, I decided to go for it.
Now about my experience. For the price of $14, I’d say in this case, don’t expect too much and then you won’t be disappointed. The romper looks cute after all but that’s because I used a belt AND tied little knots on the shoulders (which you can spot below) to keep it a bit more higher and fitted. If I didn’t do that, you’d probably have a rare peek-a-boo sighting that I did not intend. 😉 HOWEVER. If you are taller or have a longer torso, you might not have this problem. Conclusion? The romper is super affordable and with a little bit of handy action, you can totally fix whatever needs to be adjusted. 😉 Thoughts?
