I have mentioned before that coats bore me, but this one is enchanting in its neutral simplicity. Maybe I'm changing my mind about minimalist outerwear staples! After all, in comparison, I am horrified by Barbour's upcoming collection (via The College Prepster):
WHY? Those poor innocent jackets.
Anyway, that's not really related. Back to the topic at hand: I encountered Reformation via Into Mind's guide to eco-conscious shopping. According to their self-description, "Reformation is an environmentally sustainable fashion brand that repurposes vintage and surplus materials to create a chic, limited edition collection. Our collection is made locally in our own New York and Los Angeles studios, and sold directly to our own stores at fair prices." Excellent!
But there's a problem: I clicked through to look at dresses, and felt instant disappointment. I am so sick of only seeing thin models. I don't have anything against slimmer people, but I want some body diversity. PLEASE. No more insultingly obvious Photoshopped waists. And although Reformation does have women of color wearing their pieces, almost everyone is on the paler side.
Setting those grievances aside, I really like most of the garments. My favorites entail the rest of this post...
I had to include the buzzy bracelet because my dad and I recently watched More Than Honey, which was weird but good. Lots of cool macro footage of bees doing stuff.
