My winter sale picks

I've been working on a sustainability campaign for my day job and it has really opened my eyes to all of the impact we, as humans, have on the environment. Coupled with the prediction that the world might more or less come to an end by 2050, I've been low-key freaking out about the future of our planet for the last couple months. Of course, one of the worst offenders is the fashion industry, which I unwittingly contribute to by convincing you to buy stuff. I will never stop using clothing as a means of self-expression, but I am seriously reconsidering my consumption habits and, to come clean, one of my resolutions is to not buy any new clothes in 2020. I am allowing myself to shop secondhand, and to accept gifts, but I am really, really trying not to buy anything new. As you can imagine, 16 days into the year, this is already a challenge for me, but I'm hopeful that it will get easier as the months go on. (And full disclosure: I'm granting myself an exception for my birthday and if I have any significant life changes worth celebrating.) That said, there are a lot of amazing sales happening right now, and if I can't shop them, maybe you can? Here's what I'd be buying if I hadn't made this @#$%! resolution.

1. I've been obsessed with this dress ever since I saw it in Copenhagen last summer.
 Stine Goya Jasmine dress, now $276

2. Of all the things I love to buy at Everlane, sweaters are hands down my favorite.
  Everlane cashmere square turtleneck, now $124

3. I probably shouldn't cheat on my beloved Le High Straight, but I know this brand has a fanatical following.
  Agolde Nico jeans, now $118

4. This seems still like kind of a bit much for a sweatshirt, but everything Anine Bing does is just so cool, so...
  Anine Bing Ramona panther sweatshirt, now $118.30

5. The last thing I need is another leopard skirt and yet this one is somehow different from all the other ones I own.
  Allsaints Frida leopard skirt now $70

6. I've been obsessed with finding the perfect pair of snakeskin boots for months and have honed in on this pair.
  Sam Edelman Hai boot, now $143.76

7. Lest I be the last one to hop on the teddy coat bandwagon, I love how uniquely colored this one is.
  Nanushka Imogen teddy coat, now $510

8. I tried this blazer on at Barneys a few months ago and it was still a bit expensive. It is now marked down to a very enticing price.
  Isabel Marant Verix blazer, now $278

That leopard skirt is so cute! :) I'm trying to buy less this year, just like last year. I did 6 months without shopping a couple years ago and it's so tricky - you can do it though, good luck with your goals! :)

Hope that you are having a great week :)
