Today, I am sharing an outfit idea using all “last season” items. You can see another pairing idea with the same top here.
I love science and I get easily excited by new technologies, especially when they are fashion related.
Most of our clothes are made out of synthetic fabrics that do not degrade easily in landfills. In the search for other biodegradable alternatives, scientist Gary Cass created a fabric from fermented wine. During the process of fermenting wine, a “skin” will form. Gary dried the extracted ‘skin’ and it turned into a delicate cellulose material similar to cotton.
Although the use of this fermented wine fabric is very limited, it sparks ideas and makes me wonder the possibilities out there we have yet to explore.
Thanks for reading, and see you soon in the next blog post.
Smile and style on~

P.S. They are all so “old”, and I couldn’t locate them online anymore. But you can find similar alternatives at affordable / more sustainable brands! 😀
Start Up Fashion
Since I stepped into the blogging world, I have met so many creative minds hustling after their 9-5 jobs to work on their personal projects.
Last week, I met up with two photographers, Yancy and Joey (@TFTI_LA). They are enthusiast photographers that organize regular shooting events in LA to connect local photographers and artists. Even though it was my first time meeting them, we connected as if we were friends for a long time! Hope enjoy our photos:
Every year, Americans only donate 15% of their old clothes to charities/for-profit organizations, and send the remaining 10.5 tons of old clothes to landfills. Out of the donated clothes in charities such as Goodwill, only 15% are resold and reused, while the rest are sold to for-profit organizations. These organizations will then ground our disposed clothes and make wall insulation and industry rags, etc. One way to reduce our waste is to reuse our old clothes more often!
I’ve had this tank top from Reformation for a while, and it has quickly become a closet staple because of the color and the simple design. It is so versatile that I can almost pair it with anything! For more outfit ideas, please visit my older posts!
Hope you get some outfit inspirations and see you next time!
