I got my second Wearwell box and I love it! I shared with you a little bit about Wearwell back in December, but to jog your memory… Wearwell is an ethical and fair trade fashion focused styling service. It is similar to Stitch Fix (which you know that I love me some Stitch Fix), but the difference is that Wearwell *only* carries ethical and fair trade clothing and accessories.
I got a lot of messages from readers saying that you are interested in Wearwell and want to see what I get! So, I will definitely continue to share. They have not fully opened Wearwell up to the general public yet (they are still sending boxes to just those that backed their Indiegogo campaign), but they will be soon and you know I will share as soon as it is open. You can also sign up for updates on their website.
Anyway, here is what I got and what I kept and returned!
MY WEARWELL JANUARY 2018 REVIEW
Nomi Network – “Diamond Ikat Scarf” in Merlot – $45
This is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL handwoven scarf. The material is very soft and the craftsmanship is amazing. I loved the color, too! I ended up returning this one because I have so many scarves very similar to it and wanted to spend my money wisely.
About Nomi Network: Sparking entrepreneurship and the creation of new small businesses for survivors and women at the risk of human trafficking in Cambodia and India through an innovative model that provides vocational training and job placement.
Mata Traders – “Ikat Mini Dress” – size Large – $74
I am a huge Mata Traders fan and this dress is gorgeous. But, since I’m pregnant, this dress was not going to fit and it just wasn’t a practical piece for me right now, so I had to return it. 🙁
About Mata Traders: Made by artisans in India and Nepal. Women in both rural areas and urban slums earn fair wages that allow them to make their own financial decisions, such as sending their children to school.
Victoria Road – “Josephine Top” in Enchanted Garden – Size Large – $85
I LOVE Victoria Road (they’re one of my favorite fair trade fashion brands) and this top was an immediate yes for me. I loooooooove the print and the bell sleeves are gorgeous. Huge fan. HUGE FAN. I definitely kept this top!
About Victoria Road: Enabling Pakistani women to become entrepreneurs and designers who gain access to global markets. Upholding a commitment to inclusivity, this fair trade brand pays their makers a living wage, sources fabrics locally, and upcycles scrap materials.
So what do you think? Do you like the top I kept? What questions about Wearwell do you have that I can answer?
