Enji - Changing The Way You Look At Recycled Jewelry With 12 Ways To Style Your Rings This Summer

100% Handmade and Committed to Sustainability and Ethical Practices. - Enji Studio Jewelry

I have been fortunate enough to get to know Enji Studio Jewelry not only as an ethical brand but as a light in the industry making moves. Once I laid eyes on Niki's creations, the creator and owner of Enji, I absolutely fell in love. The fact that these pieces are made ethically from recycled material and give back really was the game changer for me. From bold to minimalist pieces I truly believe there is a gem for everyone here. I took these rings everywhere, honestly, I wanted to live in them and I did. They saw and felt love, joy, heartbreak and all the in-betweens.

Looking down at my hands though, the rings not only told my story of how I expressed myself through fashion but Enji's story, Niki's story and all the energy from where these recycled materials have been. To think that these rings had all that life before this point, was a unique feeling. Wearing these rings for me represented a belief that fashion is not only what you see in front of you but what could be when you create ethically.

Recycled fashion and jewelry is such a meaningful act. It's using what you have, what already exists and giving it another chance. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out a few of our Summer looks with secondhand items along with local brands.

Winter Style Guide: A Week's Worth of Tips On How To Utilize Your Swimsuit All Year Round

Winter Swimsuit Style Guide

How many people store their swimsuits away after the Summer days have left us? I know I did. So when Alyned Together gave me the "Winter Swimsuit Style Guide Challenge" it was both exciting and experimental. Why? Well because for me and maybe a lot of people out there, I associate swimsuits with pools, beaches and pretty much little to no layering.

Considering my styling options for the week ahead, I discovered that using a swimsuit as a staple fashion item is pretty ingenious. As I went through my week, I found styling my one piece came naturally to me. In all honesty, I envisioned my suit as a onesie instead of a swimsuit and changed my perspective entirely. So for those of you who never see their swimsuits until those Summer days, it's time to change that outlook. It's possible to use your suit all year round and here are some tips to do so.

Monday, A Pop Of Color: I purchased this scarf a few years ago in Europe and its large enough to use it as a wrap. Here I thought of the suit as a fitted tank that I can layer with a jacket. I also like to throw in hints of color which is why I paired the black with a secondhand statement pant, purse and turquoise vintage rings that belonged to my grandma.

Tuesday, An Edgy Neutral: In this case, I wanted to pair the swimsuit with a fitted bottom. Experimenting with your swimsuit is key. Ask yourself what tops, sweaters or jackets need layering? If it's minimum, wear your favorite light jacket over your suit. Here I accessorized with a hat, vintage jewelry, and a hemp jacket.

Wednesday, A New Years Sparkle: I love matching a bold fashion piece with solid black. I found this secondhand vest at a local shop and paired it with the swimsuit. A solid black bottom along with the suit creates the illusion of a one-piece pantsuit.

Thursday, Sports Day: Sometimes casual attire is the best medicine. I matched this look with a DIY sweater I upcycled. Also, I love pins and express my creativity through them.

Friday, The Classic Black And White: Here's another secondhand sweater from my grandma. I love the bold black and white pattern combined with the cutout the swimsuit contains. Matching your suit with your vibrant outerwear is a great way to utilize pieces from your current wardrobe.

Saturday, Sheer Magic: I wanted to give you another look with the wide-legged pant. Alternatively, wearing your swimsuit underneath a sheer top is remarkably versatile. The sheer fades out any noticeable signs that you are wearing a swimsuit.

Sunday, The Bell Sleeve: I used the swimsuit as a base for most of the outfits but I wanted to switch it up and use the suit as the actual "layered" piece instead. This technique works best if the base top is a fitted one which will eliminate any material bulking.

An Extra Day In Grandmas Blazer: Both of my grandmas have been noticing how I've styled some of their pieces so this one came as a surprise. My grandma wore this blazer to my brother's wedding years ago. I paired it with an upcycled choker I created with a cat head that originally came from a ring. Furthermore, I matched the look with secondhand bracelets and locally purchased sunglasses.

From casual to contemporary it's time to think of your swimsuits lifecycle outside of those Summertime festivities. Swimsuits don't require Summer so challenge yourself. Start with styling one outfit or using your swimsuit underneath an oversized sweater, to get familiar with the idea. Utilizing your suits and items from your current wardrobe is an incredible way to live sustainably.

Recycled, Functional and Cool, 3 Reasons grünBAG Matters to the Eco-friendly Traveler

Recycled, Functional and Cool, 3 Reasons grünBAG Matters to the Eco-friendly Traveler

I love to travel. Whether it’s to a town that is 30 minutes away or a different country, I enjoy experiencing a new place in all its glory. I don’t know if it’s the traveling soul in me but my “being” always needs to just... go. As a result, with my travels, I’ve come to really know myself. Therefore, I’ve felt deep emotions and collected memories alone and with others. I’ve also exposed some habits while traveling. One of those being overpacking! Well, let’s just say, I'm working on that one. As I navigate through my eco-friendly travels and continue to incorporate reusable bags I’ve also tapped into the sustainable bag world.

I’ve used my old backpack for years but recently I’ve noticed it wearing away. Seams are starting to rip, possibly due to my overpacking. Consequently, you can just tell I love and use my backpack. So, I'm proud of that but I also knew my next bag needed to withstand time and travel.

grünBAG Backpack Red

grünBAG, The Eco-friendly Way

What were my new backpack goals you ask? Well, I was in search of a bag that was eco-friendly, functional, cool and my personal one... that could fit my necessities without overdoing it. On the prowl, and with some research and a lot of curiosity, I found the perfect bag to test out.

Proposing a unique substitute, grünBAG repurposes industrial materials that were destined for the trash, to offer a colorful collection of conscious bags. Exploring the Danish designed collection, the bags are made from highly durable materials. Hence, these materials are constructed to endure industrial wear and tear, so I knew they were right up my alley.

We want to rethink the usability of the things we throw out, and we work for a greener future with more thoughtfulness and recycling. – grünBAG

My Travels With grünBAG Backpack Red

3 Reasons grünBAG Matters to the Eco-friendly Traveler

At this point, grünBAG was looking really great. So once I received my grünBAG, the only way to test it out was to go. I packed my backpack with necessities (remember I'm getting better) grabbed Putter (my pup) and went on an adventure. The bag survived my little nieces, outside, inside, water, mud a lot of events. It was then that I realized this bag was made to be lived in. As I “lived” in my bag for a bit I recognized 3 reasons why grünBAG matters to the eco-friendly traveler.

grünBAG Backpack Red

#1 Reusable, Recycled and Vegan Materials

Eco-friendly materials, count me in! I searched their website to list the fascinating materials for you here.

Truck Tarpaulins

Offcuts, marked as waste, are not possible to use for the trucks any longer. This “waste” is taken to the sewing room, where they are repurposed into bags.

Big-bag

Sometimes holding up a ton and used to hold large quantities of heavy materials. From bakery to your hands, here, grünBAG cleans and recycles big-bags specifically used for salt in a big Danish bakery.

Seat Belts

Collecting seatbelts from old cars ready for the scrapyard, grünBAG gives them a second life. Now, these seatbelts turn into reliable shoulder straps and belts on bags. Washed and sewn by hand, they are then checked to ensure quality.

Commercial Banners

Gathering used commercial banners and posters from different companies, these banners then become unique bags. With a quirky twist or humorous illustration, this line is entirely exclusive.

Recycled Nylon

In 2015, grünBAG applied for and received a subsidy to produce customized clasps in recycled hard plastic, also known as nylon, from the Danish Business Authority. Here grünBAG has replaced imported clasps made of new plastic.

From Soda Bottles to Fabric

100% recycled PET (polyester) fabric, a fabric made of recycled plastic soda bottles. In this method, recycled soda bottles are cleaned, sorted and processed in order to create sustainable fabrics in various colors.

Viking Lifebag

VIKING liferafts are used on board on some of the world’s largest and advanced vessels, where travelers and crewmembers rely on them to save lives. Once retired, grünBAG receives the liferafts to transform them into orange LifeBags.

#2 Traveling With A Purpose Matters

I felt good about wearing this bag. Packing my necessities and not worrying about spills, tears, and style was effortless. Now, I’ve noticed I pack with a purpose. Everything in the bag (for me) has a purpose. Here’s a look inside the bag and an idea of what may fit in it.

Here to the purposeful and cool…

Inside My grünBAG, cat not included: Chargers, handmade makeup bag, wallet, laptop

#3 Functionality And Style At Its Finest

Backpacks, shoulder bags, sports bags, accessories, and special collections there’s a bag and color for everyone. Personally, my favorite part of the bag is the functionality of it. I can take this bag anywhere and feel confident that it will survive the occasion. As much as I loved my previous backpack I know my new grünBAG has my back now. Literally!

*grüBAG provided a backpack so that I may review their product. In essence, I only partner with like-minded brands I truly believe in. Note, some bags contain leather straps but the brand is working towards becoming fully vegan-friendly.

Why I Choose to Be Fur-Free and the Brand That's Pushing the Limit

It may seem simple... I'm vegan so I don't wear anything that comes from an animal, right?!

Well, what if you are new to this "veg" world or just beginning to explore the vegan lifestyle? Therefore, the thought of wearing fur-free (or faux leather) clothing may not seem as obvious to you.  As I began my vegan journey, I learned that living vegan goes far beyond the plate.

It's no secret, there are several luxury retailers announcing their fur-free initiatives. As well as many local brands and public figures coming out and stating they will have nothing to do with fur and some even transitioning towards a fully vegan lifestyle. Some animal welfare messages are subtle while others leave you with no guesswork. When you think of the word "vegan" some may automatically relate to food and half of that thought is true. Growing into my lifestyle though, I've discovered that for me, a vegan life means your beliefs reflect on the clothes you wear too.

Stay Aware

Do you think 4 little words have the power to make a difference or at the very least change someone's thought process. Fur Belongs to Animals...

Fur Belongs to Animals T-Shirt

"Charity and philanthropy are an important part of our brand & company. Together with our partners, we help to promote the relief message and help to raise the awareness." Filip Vuckovic - Co-founder of HIDE BEYOND

Fur Belongs to Animals Sweater

Why Hide Beyond is So Important in Today's Fashion Industry...

Hide Beyond is a PETA approved vegan clothing brand that (yes) does not leave you guessing whether or not they believe in animal welfare. Filled with fur-free and plant-powered quotes the message here is positive and the 4 little word statement you see above (Fur Belongs to Animals) is powerful. Hide Beyond not only partners with various charities but creates a conversation and raises awareness. Whether you believe in vegan fashion or not the messages plant a seed in your mind and gets you thinking, even if it is to say you don't agree.

Fur Belongs to Animals Pom Pom Knit Cap

Why I Choose to Be Fur-free

I always say, if I can't kill the animal with my own hands then I won't eat it. In this case, I won't wear it either. I understand everyone's point of view is different, I respect that. That fur coat may keep you warm or that genuine leather bag may look really pretty on your arm. I've heard it, I've thought it! For me though, I think about the animals. What the animal had to endure (I mean the entire lifecycle) for me to look nice in a pair of shoes for several... maybe even one occasion is not worth it to me.

Personally, it's about wearing something that I feel positive about. Something that came from love with animals and humans in mind, that's important to me. I can't wear leather or fur (or any animal product) happily because I know that an animal suffered (in some form) for me to wear it.

Avocado Will Brighten Your Day

"Philanthropy is part of who I am and giving back to the community is a way of life for me. There's no greater feeling than knowing you're making a difference. The best time to act is now." - Filip Vuckovic - Co-founder of HIDE BEYOND

Avocado Will Brighten Your Day

Hide Beyond is important because I hope by wearing their clothes someone will ask me, what does your shirt mean or I love avocado too where did you get that top? Hide Beyond may spark a conversation with someone who doesn't know what vegan fashion is. We choose to live life as we please vegan fashion or not but there is a movement going on that is bigger than just good fashion, so awareness is key. Even if you (or I) don't change anyone's mind on wearing fur directly. Maybe, just maybe, you made an impact on someone you didn't know by simply wearing a message. I'll take my chances on that.

The Orenda Tribe, Empowering Children and Breaking Barriers Through Art

The Orenda Tribe: Empowering Children, a Force to be Reckoned With 

Think about all the things you used to do as a child... your creativity, your imagination, your playtime. Now think about your lifestyle today, do you still practice those things? Are you free to live with the creativity you had as a child? When I think about my childhood, I remember making things, playing, creating and expressing that through art. My home was an outlet that nurtured the creative, artistic child I was. That was a huge part of my life. Consequently, not everyone has that opportunity to "be a child" and have a safe zone for creative thinking though. Therefore, if you had the chance to nurture your creative side as a child would you go back and do it again? Would you give a child that opportunity?

Orenda [oh-ren-duh] a mystical force present in all people that empowers them to affect the world, or to effect change in their own lives - The Orenda Tribe

There are many Ethical Fashion brands out there doing good (and I love them for that) but none quite like The Orenda Tribe. Empowering children in disadvantaged communities through art, The Orenda Tribe is a game changer.

100% Organic Cotton Purposeful T-shirt

Why The Orenda Tribe is Keeping Creativity Alive...

Think about it, there are several universal languages everyone can feel or speak. As a result, some may think differently but a few of my favorite ones are food, love, music and yes...art. So who is The Orenda Tribe?  A brand with 7 values: Empower, Inspire, Hope, Fun, Community, Revival, and Growth. Bridging the gap between communities, The Orenda Tribe started as an idea of a t-shirt brand and became a growing movement on a mission to empower children through art.

We are on a mission of empowering children & breaking barriers between communities through art - The Orenda Tribe

Mama Bee T-Shirt 

Taking Action

From 17 Giving Back Projects such as providing a safe haven for children by promoting education and art at the Za'atari Refugee Camp to hosting Art Workshops that encourage children to attend school. The Orenda Tribe has reached over 2,000 children in 6 different communities to date.  With a number of their workshops including art therapy, the designs on the t-shirts are children's artwork from communities where they give back. 

The Orends Tribe: What We Give Overview

The Orenda Tribe provides children with the opportunity to create and for me, that's one of the greatest gifts you can give someone. They provide a space where children are free to express their ideas, their passions and most importantly feel empowered doing so. There are many hobbies, passions, and gifts a person may possess, from math to physical labor. As we know, art is different in everyone's eyes. What's beautiful to me, may not make sense to you but that is the beauty of art. Art is always right and it comes from a sacred place within someone. Without art, I would not be the person I am today. Hence, I know in my heart these children feel the same. Being able to translate their ideas in their soul onto a tangible item like a shirt is a magical thing. How else can you explain it?

A child is unfiltered and raw. As a result, I asked my nieces what art meant to them: Art makes me feel happy because you can draw whatever comes to mind, animals or flags. It's exciting to paint and draw.

Buzzy Bees, The Orenda Tribe Elements, Mama Bee + T-Shirt

Empowering People

Pursuing a career in the creative field may scare some people. People may think you are a "dreamer" or there won't be a guaranteed job for you. You won't make money or it's the unsafe (risky) route to take. Believe me, creatives have heard it all. The Orenda Tribe has shown to prove that to be wrong in every way. In addition, art is so important to a lot of children and adults in this world. We at times, push that aside and don't listen (or follow) our natural passions. So, wearing The Orenda Tribe makes me feel as if I am a child again. It helps me believe in a future where art and creatives continue to thrive.

It's no coincidence that today is International Women's Day. Let's continue to support the young females and youth in our communities. It takes males, females of all ages and diverse backgrounds to inspire a good change.  The Orenda Tribe is encouraging education, creating lasting relationships within communities, empowering people to make positive changes and it's all through art. Art is the love language here and it's our job to keep that alive. No great thing ever really dies, it lives within us forever. Alive in us, alive in children and we should spread that love.

The Power of Sustainable Fashion with IconaWear

What does sustainable fashion mean to you?

It's a question that some people may or may not be able to answer. Before I became an Ethical Fashion Advocate it was fair to say I really didn't know the answer either. That's perfectly fine to admit because it led me to my beliefs now.  I’m naturally a curious person. So I decided to educate myself on the topic with a combination of research, from documentaries to articles in hopes of answering this very question. What I found out was that every single piece of clothing has a consequence on people, animals, and the environment in its own way. Some consequences are positive while other fashion goods have a negative outcome. For me, sustainable (or ethical) fashion is cruelty-free, meaning, no animals or humans were harmed in the making of a fashion item. Sustainable fashion also means the fabrics are eco, upcycled or sustainable, the brand believes in a sustainable business model, local or handmade and there is a charity or positive cause that benefits from a purchase. There are a lot of aspects that you can consider (and that a brand can consider) as you decide to go the ethical fashion route. Now, by all means, I’m not saying brands (or you) have to consider every single aspect I mentioned above (some do) but as a start, you can decide which aspect means the most to you.

So after asking yourself what does sustainable fashion mean, it's then important to learn what brands are doing in order to call themselves ethical or sustainable. One of my favorite practices is upcycling. I create things and I have a special place in my heart for brands that do as well. Always on the prowl for the perfect upcycled piece, I came across IconaWear and let me tell you it's as if you fell into upcycling heaven. You "upcycle junkies" know exactly what I mean.

What I found out about IconaWear is that they create small batches of a variety of pieces. The great thing is they serve to a vast range of styles as well. I was fortunate enough to chat with Fashion Designer & Stylist of IconaWear, Sophia Marie and got the scoop on the brand and her beliefs.

Here's what she had to say...

This Is The Life Jacket

What does ethical fashion mean to you?
 
Well, after being informed of the critical conditions the world is in and knowing the impact I make as a contributing factor to the issue, I believe we have to take responsibility for our actions. We have the power to make those choices. No matter how big or small, it is up to the consumer. It is up to us to invest in the well-being of mama nature. 
 
What made you start IconaWear?
 
January 2017, I was practicing detachment. I cut off all my hair and purged my closet of all its excess. I saved some of the better quality items and thought to open an online shop to sell these secondhand pieces. Once the store was up, I asked my friends what they thought of the site, and they said: "Ehhhh, there is nothing special about the clothes." There was always that voice inside of me that wanted to add, tear, or mend clothes to make them more unique. So after that feedback, I started reconstructing the clothes I had on the site. After a month of putting together the first collection called Rebel Rose, February 2017 I saw the documentary, The True Cost. This film was a HUGE eye-opener. It gave me goosebumps down my spine. I felt betrayed, lied to, cheated by all these fast fashion companies and honestly just this industry as a whole. When those feelings occurred, I didn't want any part of the fashion industry. Then my brain started stirring and I thought of a quote, If you don't like something, change it. I realized that what I unintentionally was doing can be a positive contributing factor in fast fashion! After that film, I have yet to step foot in another fast fashion retailer. I started watching Ted talks, attending panel discussions and educating myself on the topic and what it means to be sustainable in the fashion industry.
The voice behind IconaWear is powerful, stimulating, and gets your blood boiling. It is meant to ignite the fire within us to get up and do something. This is what drives me, that this voice can lead others into the same way of thinking. This voice can influence your choices when it comes to your buying power and overall morals. Sustainable fashion is a sprouting topic. Similar to the organic food wave. Once people started finding out what GMO's and pesticides were, they didn't want anything to do with it. People need to know what certain textiles are made of (oil, toxins, etc.) and understand the "life" of a garment. How exactly did that garment travel through the world to then end up in your closet? It is going to be a long road, and all of us are still learning. It all starts with education, which then leads to awareness. As long as people are aware, it is up to them to make the final (ethical) decision.
 
What does IconaWear mean?
 
IconaWear's end goal is to be a symbol of influence, direction, and change. This name came to me as I was brainstorming for an image for the brand.
 
 I (as a dress form) - I (as a person) - I (as the information symbol) 
 
The power of I.
 
 Spring semester 2017 I took a class called "Icons of the Fashion Industry"
 
In that class, we went through the time periods, 1800's to current years, and talked about the different silhouettes of the decades and what influenced that particular style. For example, the exchange of cultures from East to West, War, Women's Liberation, T.V., Hollywood, The Hippie Movement, Style Tribes, Celebrities, Presidents Inauguration and their wives. Each event, person, place, and thing contributed to the way society dressed. People who were on the front pages influenced trends and styles of the decade. IconaWear will speak through the wearer. As a wearer, there will be understanding (even just a little) of the change that they are making by investing in upcycled garments. This, in turn, will create a cultural movement towards a more sustainable industry.
 
Why is upcycling fashion goods important?
 
The amount of stuff we have, as individuals and as a collective, reach beyond our needs. The majority of it takes thousands of years to decompose too. So, why don't we just be resourceful with what we already have? Giving items a second chance leads to a more sustainable future. 
 
What has been your favorite piece you created?
 
It is hard to choose just one! I love all the jackets, they are always fun to play with and style. I can't wait to try new techniques such as patchwork this coming spring collection, April 2018. We will debut the collection at San Francisco Sustainable Fashion Week. IconaWear will also be organizing a DIY event, including fashion show/panel discussion for Fashion Revolution Week (April 23rd - 29th 2018) in San Francisco, California!

How To Recycle Your Look with Accessories

Have you ever thought to yourself... I have this same dress (top or bottom) and I want to wear it again but I need my "look" to feel different. Well, no more wishing for you! Below I'll take you through another series of how to change your look with styling. Let's talk about the dress first, I purchased it at a secondhand shop. The beauty of this particular dress is that you can dress it up or down depending on what you have in your own closet. Make sure to keep that in mind when purchasing your items, this makes it easier to create a sustainable wardrobe.

Now for my first look...

Look 1

The "Pretty" Look

This look is "dressed up." Since we have a few more days of Summer left I used a brown wedge, shimmer belt, and upcycled this purse I found at a thrift store by adding poms. I made sure to use a light colored choker as well as sunglasses for a playful vibe.

Look 2

The "Edgy" Look

 

So this look is using the same dress but I added a fanny pack, switched my wedges for trainers, added a cap and changed my light pink choker to a black one. I also switched out my sunglasses for a darker pair. The switch with accessories gives the power of a "comfortable" vibe with a bit of edge.

 

It's possible to use the same dress or fashion item of your choice and be able to create several different looks with it. Look through your closet and lay out your clothes and accessories. By visually seeing what you have together (at the same time) you can start creating outfits with them. This also helps you see what you frequently wear and sift through what you don't. Let me know what you think of these outfits or if you want to know how to style particular items, I would love to hear from you all.
