Friday ReBlog: 2 (Well, Really 3) New Blogs

Conscious by Chloé features French blogger Chloé Lepeltier’s adventures in simpler living, including making hip outfits out of secondhand finds and ethically made clothing.  Don’t worry, it’s in English (she’s based in Portland).
Bonus for any of you francophiles out there, though: her friend Alyssa Pacaut blogs on her transformation into a full-blown Frenchie at Modern French.
Conscious by Chloé has great ideas/resources for nontoxic makeup, using less plastic/going zero waste, and other creation/wallet-friendly stuff.  Modern French features great recipes and wine.  Both blogs have a lovely clean look to them and beautiful photographs; get amongst them!

The Ethical Wardrobe by Aussie Sophie O’Shea is a high energy, snarky, millenial take on giving up fast fashion and exploring more ethical alternatives, including secondhand clothing.  Buckle up for lots of incomrephensible slang, ridiculous photo illustrations, and parrot playsuits.  It’s refreshing (not to mention fun) to see someone from the typical target demographic for “shopping haul” vlogs and merry-go-round style blogs take it to another level.  Plus eye-opening if you’re a regular at H&M, Zara, or other fast fashion hotspots.


What are your favorite thrifting and thrift-ish blogs of late, Thrifters?  Scroll down to comment!  And happy weekend already.

    1. It IS you, and thanks for writing such great stuff!! I’m glad you took the “incomprehensible slang” bit as a compliment—I’m pretty sure it’s not incomprehensible for folks of same age/geographical locale, but since my readers skew older and American I wanted to give them a heads up. :)

      PS You have inspired me to post on my own well-loved parrot playsuit…keep your eyes peeled once temps warm up here in the Northern hemisphere!

  1. How did I miss this article?!
    Thank you so much for mentioning my work and Alyssa’s. Now I’m gonna head over to Sophie’s blog.
    I love to discover other people’s work!
    My all-time favorite is Caroline Joy, of minimalist fashion blog Un-Fancy. Simple, minimal and (until recently) ethical.

    1. So glad you stopped by, Chloé! I check in regularly with Un-Fancy—it’s good to see the ethical direction she’s headed in.
      And yes, I love seeing new (to me) blogs featured on blogs I regularly read—that’s how I build my list of good stuff to read!

  2. Merci beaucoup! Your post has totally made my day, my week, my year! Let me know if you try any of the wines. As a girl who loves a good deal, the Good Cheap Wine posts should be right up your alley.

    1. Good + Cheap wines = our faves… I find that Costco and Aldi particularly come through in this category. I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more posts!
      Glad you stopped by—always glad to share a shoutout for a blog I dig :)
