3 Different Ways To Wear A Basic Peruvian Organic Pima Cotton Tee

A basic tee-shirt should NOT be $50, $60 nor $70, and this is the first line that needs to be drawn in making sustainable fashion affordable and accessible. No matter your geography, style sensibility or ethnic background - a basic white (black or grey) tee shirt is more than likely a staple part of any wardrobe. 

This is the perfect place to start your sustainable fashion journey when you’re ready and able to take that first step in purchasing something new. 

Most people don’t know the basic lifestyle of a tee shirt. The material phase alone includes farming, irrigating, fertilizing, harvesting and ginning. Understanding the time it takes just to make a tee but also the waste that’s created when using conventional cotton will make buying that first sustainable tee extra special. 

One brand we love has a mantra of “accessible-luxury”. Truth Alone Clothing is a basic tee brand specializing in Peruvian Organic Pima Cotton, as well as Peruvian Sourcing & Production. They work to keep everything as local as possible, from raw material to finished product, but their our photography, stylists, models, and locations are also Peruvian. “We believe in giving back to a culture that puts so much love into everything they do, and that’s the truth.”

Here are some looks in my Truth Alone tee shirts:

  • Peruvian Organic Pima Cotton Black tee - Truth Alone
  • Vintage denim jeans
  • Heeled Mules - Bhava (Handmade Italian vegan leather that DOES NOT contain aromatic amines, PCP, formaldehyde, PVC, phthalates, azo-dyes, or chrome. 
  • Peruvian Organic Pima Cotton White tee - Truth Alone
  • Thrifted Mustard Overalls
  • Indigo Dyed Slides - Studio One Eighty Nine

Wear What Makes You Glisten

I've worn this dress once before ... but of course part of being sustainable is wearing it again! (See previous feature). I love the quality, simplicity and most of all the women behind this ethical brand. Chan & Krys  make sure great fluid pieces that you can keep forever and still pass down to your next of kin.

Day 2 of Barcelona was all about hitting tourist attractions while finding the discrete and intricate beauties of traditional architecture. Güell Park has some of the most majestic sights marrying nature and immaculate stone work. Grammar's organic cotton Dangling Modifier shirt dress has a similar beauty of sheer functionality with beautiful craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Everyone loves the weekend but for many entrepreneurs there's no such thing as the weekend. The weekend is simply a state of mind. My favorite day of the week is oddly enough - is Monday! It's such an important day for me to start my weekly intentions off with the right energy! Every Monday I work, dance, sing and party in my head. Monday's are my weekend and I'm okay with that. And what better way to start the week off than by wearing Chan & Krys' comfy organic cotton & hemp dress! 

Sitting by the window seal, listening to Jazz while the inscent burns, marinating in my sustainable fashion dress as I plot how to make a positive impact .... YEA I'M THAT GIRL! #MondayMotivation

Sometimes I want to look nice but not be extra! LOL Bhava's Ali Block Heel Mule is HELLA comfortable, extremely cute, and easy to slip on when you're on the go! I particularly love to support this brand as the founder, Francisca, has been hard at work fighting injustices within fashion for years. This BDAC sweatshirt is also extremely comfortable and so easy to wear. This particular brand does a lot of over-sized items  -- I think pairing an oversized top with a little heel gives the tomboy vibe a little sass. This is clearly my "I'm lazy but let me look like I give a damn" look.
