It is that time of the year again… The time to sparkle and get every glitter out to shine like a real disco ball! Even though I try to implement glitters, shine and sequins in my daily life as they make me really happy, I can go extra bold in December – and so can you! Of course, we shouldn’t forget about making a conscious choice when it comes to buying a party outfit. Even though it might be tempting to run into the fast fashion stores and go crazy on all the Black Friday sales this weekend, we should think about what we buy and how to do better. Good news for you because I want to introduce you to a discovery that recently launched in The Netherlands (but is available in many more countries) and is a sustainable choice. Read on…
There are many ways of doing sustainable. Not buying is one of them, buying from sustainable brands or second hand is another one, but have you thought about last season shopping? You may know the concept of an outlet center where you buy last season items, and this is basically the online version. In 2018, H&M launched Afound with its first store in Stockholm and online in Sweden. Afound is a new type of outlet that offers hundreds of well-known fashion and lifestyle brands for women, men and kids, and always to a reduced price! So this makes it a sustainable choice to buy your party outfit. You may have heard of the stories of burning unsold clothes, which is heartbreaking. With Afound, H&M gives new life to clothes that aren’t sold the previous season and offers them to you for an even better price. How good is that!
So for your sustainable and affordable party outfits, you can now shop at Afound. I created two different looks for you to get some inspiration. The first is a sequin slip dress with some super sexy Isabel Marant heels (believe me, if they were my size I would have ordered them straight away) and a dramatic leopard printed coat. The other one is a bit cooler with metallic on metallic with a golden top, a silver leather pants (this one is a real bargain!), and a pair of silver cowboy boots. Get inspired in the image below and click the shop links per number.
A sustainable present?
Also, I could not resist to include the perfect sustainable gift for this Holiday season. You may remember Project Cece from this post, the market place for sustainable brands. Now they launched a gift card as well so you can make someone else happy with a sustainable present. How good is that?!
