If you have been following my posts for a while, you know how much I love my Ethnic outfits and specifically the Indian fabrics. And this unending love makes me explore different stores (mostly online and that deliver to the US) as I live abroad. And today, I’m here to share with you one such online stop that I fell in love with recently.
Silver oxidized jewelry has been trending so much recently, that I personally want to buy some. However, I wasn’t sure where can I buy them in the US. So I was just randomly searching for the stores that have some nice and affordable jewelry, which also offers international shipping. I came across The Loom – an exclusive online shop for Handcrafted pieces and instantly fell in love with their jewelry collection. Their price range was also super affordable, like they start from around $6 and up. I really wanted to try some, so I ordered around 3 – 4 pairs, and paid a little extra for shipping. They came in around 5-10 days and everything was beautiful – their packaging, quality and their shipping service.
I have been recently exploring a lot about sustainable living and started some little baby steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle. We are in this trend of fast fashion, and being a teenager or even in my early 20’s I have never thought about eco-friendly fashion. All I wanted was a huge wardrobe with so many clothes, so I did not bother about how they are being made, how long they last and were they worth my money, when I think about it in the long run. I cannot even imagine, how much money I would have wasted on all the cheap clothes that only lasted for one, two or a maximum of 5 washes.
I believe that with age and maturity, our perspective towards the smallest of the things change. This helped me start some baby steps towards a more sustainable and wholesome lifestyle. Talking about sustainable fashion, the first thing that comes in my mind is all our Indian handcrafted fabrics – Kadhi cotton, block prints, kalamkari, chikankari and you name it. I think they are a true symbol of craftsmanship which are not as much recognized.
Sustainable fashion/eco-fashion has many forms and is something we as an younger generation should start thinking more about. To me it is more about reducing the environmental impacts, reducing wastage by recycling old clothes and also recognizing & improving the social conditions in factories. And also help recognize the hard work that goes into curating & manufacturing those fabrics & outfits.
I was so happy to see that, stores like Loom carry all those handcrafted textiles. With one happy experience, I wanted to explore more in their website. I instantly loved this top, when I saw it and wanted to give it a try.
Top – The Loom; Earrings – The Loom
It was the softest cotton, super light weight and perfect for the summers. It was so flowy that I could not stop from twirling around. It was an absolute win and I’m looking forward to try more from their website. To style the look, I added a pair of silver Jhumkas and styled my hair curly. If you are really looking to trying some Indian fabrics, sustainable clothing or silver jewelry, I would definitely recommend to checkout The Loom.
I hope you like the look and the post in general 🙂 I try to speak out my mind and be as clear as possible. If you have any stores in mind, that you would recommend then let me know in the comments. Also, let me know what you think about this look 🙂 See you super soon with a new post! Happy week ahead 🙂
Lots of Love,
