Inside My Closet - Retro Green Pants

Inside My Closet - Retro Green Pants

March 27, 2018

While visiting New York in February, I visited Encore Consignment Boutique on Madison avenue where I found an incredible pair of retro coloured bright green pants. On this ‘Inside my closet’ feature, I’d like to share this find with you, and talk a little bit about dressing for self expression, rather than approval.

My partner introduced me to Encore’s incredibly cute boutique the first time I went to New York awhile back, and on this recent work trip I thought I’d make time for a quick visit and browse. I’m so glad I did. What I love about these pants are the fit, the quality, and their originality. Made out of a cotton wool combination, they’re incredibly comfortable. They were also really reasonably priced. Walking down the street, I feel pretty confident that no one else is going to have an item like these on.

I’ve worn them to a few of my recent markets, but what I really love about them isn’t any external reaction I may get, but how they make me feel. Here’s what I believe about fashion – fashion is the way we communicate to the world who we are, and how we’re feeling. My choices in fashion reflect who I am and what I believe in/ who I support (that’s why I stay away from fast fashion). 

When I’m feeling playful or bold, what I wear will probably reflect that… which is definitely how I’m feeling right now.

It’s been an incredible year so far, and currently I’m in Quebec for a wholesale show to share some of my ethical, handmade jewelry with a brand new audience. In the area? Come by the Devi stall at the Quebec Expo and say hi. I’d love to meet you and hear your fashion stories.

For this very first backpacking trip, I travelled to Bogotá – the capital city of Columbia, and one of the 30 largest cities in the world. I still remember the butterflies in my stomach. I was really nervous, but the trip exceeded my expectations with some standout memories/experiences I'd love to share.
