We're completely obsessed with fashion.

So much so that we built a fashion search engine that keeps tabs on over a million products from over ten thousand brands. Now we have a community of over 300,000 people who help us pick the best items from across the web.

See something you like? Just reblog it and that tells us you think it's hot. The more reblogs something gets, the bigger the box. Better yet, treat yourself to something you love and buy it online.

7 Tips on How to be Fashionably Responsible

Love fashion AND want to do all you can for the environment? This Wednesday, our stylish friend Myriam, Founder of Eco Fashion Week, talks about 7 things you can do to be more fashionably responsible. Take it away Myriam!

1. Ask yourself: “Do I really need it?”

Most of our purchases are impulsive. You will often surprise yourself by answering “no” to the question.

2. Be curious and be informed.

Ask the salesperson in store questions, read labels (where is it made? what is it made of?), follow eco fashion-focused blogs like Ecouterre, Eco-salon, or Tree Hugger.

3. Be proud of bringing your re-usable shopping bags, even if it is in a high-end store.

Does your t-shirt need to be wrapped in a paper with a ribbon, in a box, in a fancy bag with even more paper? There is totally a prestige factor to it, but what happens to all of this after? Re-use? Recycle? Garbage? Being “eco” is not only with your actions, but with your attitude as well.

4. Wear your clothes!

There is no wrong in wearing the same pair of pants or sweater twice or even three times in a week. Be creative and style those differently. Take a minute and look at your closet right now. How many things have you only worn once, or never? Once you are done going through your closet, DONATE!

5. Buy quality.

If you really must buy, make sure your clothes have long lifespans. The higher the quality, the longer the life. Basic and classic pieces should always be part of your wardrobe. Look for well-made clothes with high-end fabrics and materials, and timeless patterns. If you shop this way, you will wear your clothes over and over again without getting tired of them.

6. Take the leap and try second hand clothing.

If you buy around 10 clothing items per month, try to get at least 1 out of 10 of them used. You can find stylish used pieces from vintage and thrift stores. Better yet, exchange clothes with other fashionable friends (it’s free!), or have a fashion swap event. Stop being scared of wearing second hand clothing; there is nothing to fear. Start with accessories, like a purse or a belt, and see how you feel; you’ll start to notice how people compliment you for your fashionably responsible finds..  

7. Find your own “Eco Recipe”.

There are many ways of being fashionably responsible, and we do not have the same personal, human and financial resources. Find what fits you and commit to improve every year. Between second hand clothing, local manufacturing, organic or recycled material, fair labor, upcycling… you have many options. It’s simpler than you think, and guess what, it feels amazing to take action and be the change!

5 Cute Cutout Booties Styles for Spring

Cutout booties sound kind of ugly when you describe them out loud. They’re like boots that some designers tried to turn into sandals, but not quite. Pretty hideous sounding, right? But if you have ever basked in the glory that is your ideal cutout bootie, you’ll understand why everybody’s so obsessed with them for spring. They offer the perfect balance between breathability and covering up. 

Here’s the easiest way to convince you of their necessity for spring. Imagine when you’re under your covers, and you’re too hot, but when you kick off the blankets, you’re freezing. It’s a universal thing that people do in which you stick just one leg out, and the temperature is suddenly perfect. That’s what cutout booties in the spring feel like to your feet—like sticking one leg out when it’s too hot under the covers.

Casual

Cutout booties with a 1-2 inch heel are super comfy and great for daily wear. Remember to stick to those slip-on socks that just cover up your toes at the front if you’re not wearing tights. If you find yourself needing to wear socks, always stick to nude or black, so nothing clashes or looks funky in a bad way.

Sandal Substitute

If you get a tan pair with enough cut outs, you might actually be able to get away with passing them off as an alternative to the standard tan summer sandals. They’re great to pair with bright colors and offer some protection when it rains.

Grungy

The Balenciaga black cutout boots have been a style blogger and celebrity favorite for the last couple years, but not everyone’s wallets can afford the hefty $1,275 price tag. Here’s an option if you’re looking for a similar style to pair with a grungier outfit.

Twist on the Combat Boot

Stand apart from the crowd by getting a pair of combat boots with cutouts. They’ll look a bit more spring appropriate as well as more unique.

Night Out

Sky-high heels on cutout booties are flirty and fun to dress up an outfit for a date or just a night out on the town.
