ASTRID | ATL | SLOW FASHION

After watching the documentary "The True Cost" (which I highly, highly recommend everyone watch) I felt so guilty buying into the weekly fashion ads that took my email by storm. I've made the conscious decision to stop buying clothes so often and--when I do go shopping--to invest in pieces that will last me long term, are sustainable, and produced ethically. If you've never heard of the term "slow fashion" it simply entails this idea of purchasing reused clothes from second hand boutiques, thrift stores and shopping at stores that no longer produce their items at a rapid pace. In other words, shopping consciously and intentionally.  

As you can imagine I was so excited when I was reached out to about a collab with INDIE SOUTH and COCO + MISCHA. Both boutiques encourage slow fashion through their use of recycling garments. Without further ado...

Karina | Spontaneous ATL Rooftop Session

Fun fact: Karina + I initially had planned on going to the ATL Botanical Garden for an afternoon of location scouting, BUT we arrived to a close facility. So, instead of turning back home we made our way to a rooftop downtown, snapped a few photos of one another, got yelled at by a security guard on a segway, and ended our day with tacos and laughs. A day well spent if you ask me!
