the moral wardrobe: high waist jeans

I decided when I started this blog that I would post occasional personal outfits that exemplify ethical consumption in action. It’s a fun challenge for me and I hope it will encourage you in your fashion pursuits.

high waist jeans

This outfit is comprised of:

  • J. Crew striped shirt (see their production standards)
  • Thrifted and altered cardigan
  • ModCloth Judy Blue Jeans, made in USA (buy cheaper here)
  • Vintage leopard print belt from local shop
  • Claytrin necklace by Melissa Lewis
  • Second hand Minnetonka moccasins, purchased on ebay

These jeans are a new arrival to my closet, purchased for 12% off during Twelvsies Tuesday at ModCloth. I purchased them there because they offer free return shipping if the item doesn’t fit. Fortunately, they do fit (after shrinking them up a bit in the dryer). Hot Topic offers them for about $10.00 less, however, so I might purchase the dark wash version there in the future. I recommend sizing up one size to keep the button closure from pulling in an unflattering manner.
