If you’re like me and haven’t won the lottery yet, shopping for sustainable and affordable clothes can seem nearly impossible. Luckily, I compiled a list of my favorite summer threads from eco-friendly fashion companies, all under $100. Can you say cha-ching?!?! Check out my summer wishlist below. Which one is your favorite?! Everlane, Form Slide Sandals, $98 Everlane might be my favorite sustainable fashion company. Their policy of “radical transparency” means they tell the customer exactly what goes into the making of their products. From prices to fabrics to the factories, all product

I am going to be real with you for a minute, watches have never been my favorite. I find that watches are often too dainty or blingy or sporty. Those styles have never been my thing so finding a watch I actually liked has been next to impossible. From the moment I saw the Frankie watch in Koa & Ash from JORD Watches, though, I knew I’d finally found my style.

Even if you aren’t obsessed with black like I am… We all need a Little Black Dress in our closet. Finding the right dress can be tricky, though (can I get an amen from my tall girls). The perfect LBD has to be flexible to fit any occasion, comfortable and high quality so it can stay in your closet forever.

From tell-all-tales to hard hitting journalism, Netflix is like the Hogwarts library of documentaries. But what about documentaries on one of the biggest global industries in the world? I scoured Netflix for the BEST fashion documentaries and found five that topped the list. Since that meant watching most of them for research, I had to spend a whole Saturday glued to my couch (oh how I sacrifice for my

#collaborate #create #connect What do you get when creative chicks decide to unite? The Throne Project (see this post to learn all about it) was the perfect excuse to blend the talents of local bloggers, photographers and entrepreneurs together. I mean, who else but the ladies of Queen City Vignette would drag an antique chair into the middle of a cemetery? And, who could possibly be more talented than the beautiful creature behind Lauren W Photography? I’m telling you, with badass chicks like that in your corner, its impossible to go

Nasty Gal is my go-to site for edgy, unique clothes. Unfortunately, however, this chick is one conscious spender so I can’t be dropping hundreds of doll hairs on new clothes. The first time I found out that Nasty Gal’s distribution center (which ironically is only a short drive from where I live) I was thrilled. The savings were unbelievable.

ASOR IS A YEAR OLD!!! Back in January 2015, I hosted a little blog launching party to celebrate A State of Ruin coming into existence. Right on the heels of the New Year, there was only one theme that would do for such an occasion, Gatsby. With a lot of help from friends, careful planning and some serious bargain hunting, we had a party that I think even Ms. Daisy would be swooning over. A lot of Pinterest action might have occurred as well. CLICK HERE to see the board
