I got another Wearwell box this month! Wearwell is one of my favorite new services… I have posted about Wearwell a couple of times (see past reviews here and here) – but Wearwell works very similar to personal shopping services like Stitch Fix and Trunk Club. The main difference is that Wearwell ONLY carried ethical and fair trade fashion brands!
I love their mission and I look forward to seeing them continue to grow! Anyway, I wanted to share what I got in my Wearwell box this month because so many of you love these posts and want to know more about each brand inside! 🙂
Without further ado, here’s what I got in my Wearwell box and a little about each piece:
Fair Anita “Agave Blouse” – Size L – $62
about the brand: “Empowers women with dignified jobs and fair trade relationships. This woman-owned brand has positively impacted over 8,000 lives in over 16 countries with living wages, training, and connection to a global market.”
(Excuse the wrinkles – it was just out of the box and I didn’t want to iron or steam it just to take a picture of it… haha!)
I was really torn on this blouse. Wrinkles aside, I loved the color, the fabric was to die for, and the fit was really amazing. But I just didn’t love it. I was 50/50 on it and my husband said he didn’t love it so that pushed me over the edge to return it. But now I’m kind of second guessing (even though it’s too late). So what do you think? Again, wrinkles aside. 😉
Soko Mini Hewa Necklace – $68
about the brand: “Empowers artisans in Sub-Saharan African by linking them to the US market through innovative technology. The result: a 5x increase in the artisan’s earnings that has a ripple effect on economic grown in communities that need it most.”
I LOVE Soko – they are one of my favorite ethical jewelry brands. This necklace is beautiful, but I have so many necklaces just like it that I couldn’t justify keeping it.
Alternative Apparel “Ramble Eco-Gauze Raglan Tunic in Rose Quartz” – ML – $46
about the brand: “Focusing on fabric first, this brand uses organic or recycled materials and non-toxic, low impact dyes in everything they possibly can. You’re supporting their focus on sustainability before the stitching even begins. Beyond care for the environment, they adhere to some of the highest standards for worker’s rights across their production, which spans Latin America, South Asia, the Middle East, and the US.”
So I really loved this top. I actually loved the fit front to back… the color, the fabric, and the length were all perfect. But the sleeves… the sleeves were CRAZY tight. I could barely get them on. I was so sad! It fit literally everywhere but the sleeves. Therefore, I had to return it… 🙁
What do you think? Do you think I should have kept something that I didn’t? Have you signed up on the waiting list to try Wearwell?
