Clo.Outfit: Closet Maximization & Jewel Tones

Images by K

What I'm wearing:
Top: Saree blouse (re-purposing a 6 year old saree blouse)
Dress: American Apparel bandeau dress worn as a high top skirt (Made in USA/Downtown LA)
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood for Melissa (Plastic, Vegan)
Jewelry: Flea markets in Hyderabad, India and New York City

Honestly, I'm feeling quite proud of myself for coming up with this outfit on the fly! We were going to a Indian street festival and wanted my outfit to have Indian influences. 

The shoes are from Vivienne Westwood's collaboration with Brazilian shoe brand  Melissa. This company is doing many things right starting with paying their employees fair wages with good benefits and recycling almost ALL of their factories' waste and water. Apparently, they even recycle overstock goods to make next season collections! Woot! Woot!

The shoes themselves are made of MELFLEX plastic and are 100% recyclable and 100% vegan! And damn, are they comfortable! The shoe bed is very cushy and I've worn these shoes for hours without pain.

The black dress is from American Apparel. Made in downtown LA, this vertically integrated apparel manufacturer prides itself on paying their workers fair wages and believes in keeping it local.

Note to self: never take outfit pictures at/post dusk
