conscientious copycat: a little bit ’80s

Jazmine is a UK-based fashion blogger with a classic sense of style. I love the simplicity of this casual outfit comprised of effortless wardrobe basics with contemporary updates.

Jazmine wears a lot of Asos, which I (hesitantly) consider ethical. But I thought I’d find similar pieces from other retailers instead.

    do you know if BDG produces their clothing ethically? i’ve tried to do some research online, but haven’t been able to really find anything. Thanks!

      I highly doubt that BDG or any of the Urban Outfitters brands outside of the ones specifically labeled “Made in the USA” are produced with any clear standards in place. I found the ones I listed in this post second hand on ebay, which at least distances me one step from the source.

      Keep in mind that UO’s parent company owns Anthropologie and Free People; both have very low ethics ratings on Good Guide: http://www.goodguide.com/products/340646-free-people
