J’adore Le Going Green!

May 2, 2020

“Hi my name is Dawn Lucy, and I’m a recovered fast fashion addict.”

I admit it. I used to love fast fashion.  Why spend a lot when you can spend a little?  When people would say “oh you’ll have that piece for years” I used to counter with “Oh God, I hope not!”

But things change.  Our awareness shifts over time and we are now realizing the high cost of cheap fashion.  And as a fashion fans, most of us are trying to make some positive changes.  And it’s refreshing! And actually way more fun than I thought it would be. That’s right, I said FUN!  There is a sense of joy that comes with being more selective and thoughtful about our choices.  The more I experience high quality clothing, the more I appreciate the difference.

With all that in mind, I’ve made a change to supporting more eco-friendly businesses, including Mount Indigo, a small company with a mighty mission to help keep our planet beautiful and “instagrammable.”

Mount Indigo makes sending a message about the environment fun, with sassy graphic t-shirts and denim jackets!

The brand carefully chooses high quality pre-loved denim jackets and brings them back to life with a strong message.  You are saving a jacket from the landfill, as well as spreading some eco-friendly love, and supporting a small business that gives back.

Also be sure to check out their cute tees!  You might have seen me sporting my “Keep the Planet Instagrammable” tee in some past outfits of the day.

I styled my fun new jean jacket here with some crop flares, snake boots, a white tee, my neutral leather tote, fav sunglasses and tortoise earrings.

Also on the blog recently, a baggy sweats, but make it fashion, my fav spring skirt, and a funny statement sweatshirt.

How are you all doing today?  I’m so ready for some weekend fun!  Are you still on shelter in place? In the San Francisco Bay Area, we are on lockdown through the end of May.  I’d love some new ideas of ways to have fun during lockdown.  Any suggestions, Dolls?!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is ME talking to YOU, other middle-aged women who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, including style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
