Just a quick shout out guys & dolls: If you do one thing today on your computer, you must check out Style With Heart @ http://www.stylewithheart.com/ - it’s an amazing site dedicated to providing a guide of hundreds of ethical clothing and accessory brands available to consumers today. I think many people would be pleasantly surprised at the sheer number of labels on the market that are concerned about our world and all of the people living in it, as opposed to simply making a quick buck with no regard to anything or anyone else.
The site is split into a number of categories: Fair Trade, Fairly Traded, Organic, Eco-Friendly, Recycled and Vintage. I dare you to come away without finding something that tickles your taste buds; there’s almost certainly something to get everyone excited about responsible fashion. Whoever came up with the concept of the site is a super kind genius (the best kind of genius out there in my humble opinion). We're all going to have to begin to make more informed choices where the clothes on our backs are concerened if we're going to maintain anything that vaguely resembles a sustainable way of life for future generations to come. And if we consciously decide to make better choices now, and learn about where our clothes are actually coming from and the journey of how they reach us, then we will be in a much better position to teach younger people about these important issues, and pave them a better path.

And while I’m on the theme of kindness, though this is nothing to do with fashion it centres on kindness which I believe is central to the idea of charity and giving back, and fashion can definitely be a part of that. Anyway, just take a peek at this ‘Thought Bubble’ animation by author Amy Krouse Rosenthal - it added much needed rays of beaming sunshine to my day...
