Gosh, this month has flown by!

This is your annual reminder to look for Fair Trade brands when shopping for your wardrobe– not just your coffee, tea, and chocolate. But you should do that too. Child slavery is definitely not chic.

I direct you to this post from 2 years ago, which is full of good information to get you started on your ethical fashion journey.

And stay tuned here on the Blogue and my other haunts on the web (<– like that unintentional Halloween reference?) and your phone, as I have a nice surprise coming up from one of our Best Exotic-favorite brands, Marketplace: Handwork of India
