I Gen Z-er’s.  We need a hero right now. I truly believe they are it. #HOPE #RESIST ・・・We are the most educated, most diverse, and best equipped generation to turn the tides of greed and corruption. Voting is about much more than electing a president. We need to put people in office at every level of power that will represent and fight for our community. It’s gonna be up to our generation to get money out of politics for good. Play your part bruh. Now is the time..#WeRISEWeVOTE #WhyDoYouVote. . . . .#Repost @xiuhtezcatl

For deets on this #TreeHuggerChic look and others, follow me on @instagram https://t.co/J0lUbtJEzQ #fashion #style… https://t.co/LjkTXtRkeE

My personal style is #TreeHuggerChic. I keep an earth friendly wardrobe to celebrate who I am and for my deep love for this incredible planet. There’s this myth that being sustainable in fashion means you give up on style or you have to fork out a lot of coin. I’m here to prove that silly notion is not true. In fact, once you learn the tricks you’ll end up saving a ton of cash. Check in with me regularly for tips & ideas. Look great, feel great and save money. Why would you not want to hug trees? PRO-TIP: care, repair and extend the wear. Collect items of quality – things that are meant to last – and take care of them. This will cut down your spending overall and quality always turns up the style dial. IMHO: if you buy cheap (quality), you look cheap.To get quality on a budget, see image I borrowed from @sarahlazarovic Questions? Definitely reach out. More than happy to help. . . . . .Deets about this Tree-Hugger look:* Dress on its second lifecycle; acquired at a clothing swap. It’s made with @the.world.of.tencel which is a earth-friendly rayon alternative made from leftover wood and cotton scraps.* Sweater jacket was once my grandmother’s. It was passed on to me after she passed away. Yeah, she had amazing taste.* Boots by @thefryecompany I got them in 2004. They have been resoled twice while the upper part keeps getting worn in. They are the most comfortable boots ever; only time gets them like this. * Purse by @dooneyandbourke my first purchase for myself as a @nordstrom stylist (oh I loved that job ). I admit that I’m a bit hard on it but the darn thing has held up. Will be taking it in for a clean-up and minor repair soon. Definitely more years to come out of this one. * I’ve had my @rayban Aviators since 2008. I never put them on my head and always store them in their case. They haven’t lost their shape and have no scratches because of this. They are iconic and timeless. I have not purchased another set of sunglasses in the last decade. Back tattoo reads Balancia (balance in Italian). Many hugs and kisses to @evan_lacombe for taking the photos 🏻
