Thanks for the Push

Thanks for the Push

Here I am with Clean Clothes, a sustainable fashion blog.  I didn’t really consider this until out of the blue a childhood friend, Annie, texted me with a demand, “Will you just start a blog already?”  I laughed and replied, “What makes you say that?” Only to have her respond that I have always had a great fashion sense and that she enjoys many of the posts I share about fibers and the environment.  To say the least it warmed my heart to know that others cared and enjoyed the same things that I do, and that I was already a platform for a belief system that cared holistically about the environment, and people, with style in mind. 

Later that same day another friend, April, call me just to say she missed me.  April and I have always connected over issues surrounding social justice. She inspires me so much! I promptly told her what Annie had suggested and April completely agreed, offered her services as a photographer and we excitedly spoke about this venture. 

As a friend of the blogger Blonde Bedhead aka Andrea I was always impressed by the images and life style she lived and shared.  I expressed some fear that blogging is too curated and can lack authenticity, but with Blonde Bedhead, I know Andrea personally and also read her blog.  She is who she is in both spaces and has reassured me that I can be that too.  

So ladies, thank you for your enthusiasm, encouragement, and genuine interest in sustainable fashion!
