The Versalette Challenge Accepted!

Hello lovelies! Last week we gave a shout out to one of our favorite sustainable fashion brands, Seamly.co! We also shared our favorite piece from their line, the revamped Versalette.

Midi Dress by Seamly.co – $40

In case you don’t remember, or didn’t see last week’s post, the Versalette is basically a wardrobe Swiss army knife—a piece that can be worn in 30 different ways. Seamly.co launched the Versalette Challenge this past Wednesday, where fans rock their Versalette in new ways for a week and share photos via Instagram. Fun right? It gets better though… one lucky winner will be chosen based on creativity/personal style and will snag a bag of Seamly.co pieces (including this adorable Midi dress) and some one of a kind jewelry by Native Clutter. And well one of us (Jackie) at Y&L decided to take the challenge, and we thought it would be fun to share her looks so far!

Versalette Challenge Day 1

For day 1 Jackie rocked the original Versalette in charcoal as a skirt with an owl-print tee from Urban Outfitters, chambray button down from Urban Outfitters, and leopard print wedges from Toms. The head band is fair trade.

Versalette Challenge Day 2

By day 2 of the challenge her new Versalette arrived so Jackie decided to try it out, this time as a tunic top belted with a tribal print belt from Anthropologie. Denim from Levis, sandals from Urban Outfitters, and hat from Nordstroms.

What other way’s should Jackie rock the Versalette for the challenge? Strapless dress? Off shoulder top? Bubble skirt? Once the challenge is complete we will share a complete lookbook!

Refresh Your Wardrobe Part 2!

Image from letsgetdealstoday.com

A few weeks ago we shared some amazing places online that you can refresh your wardrobe without breaking your budget (Twice and Nifty Thrifty)! Today we wanted to share our latest online affordable fashion obsession: Poshmark! Like Nifty Thrifty you have to sign up to shop or sell clothes/accessories but the process is pretty painless. It sort of resembles Pinterest… but full of trendy and adorable clothes that are screaming to be in your closet!

You can shop from the main feed, go to a “party,” or shop by category. The prices are reasonable, and many people sell items that are still new with tags (NWT)! Right now we are coveting this gold & hot pink tribal necklace,

and vintage triangle rivet bracelet!

So what’s not to love about affordable, trendy, and more sustainable fashion? We don’t know you tell us!

Are you swooning over all the new spring trends? Is your wardrobe screaming for a makeover? Today we’ve got two sites that can help you achieve the look you want without breaking the bank: Twice and Nifty Thrifty. Nifty Thrifty is amazing, they collect unique pieces and curate them based on the best trends. Looking to add a little floral to your wardrobe this spring, just go their floral collection. Need a great maxi, they have a collection for that too.

Twice is great for both buying and selling clothes. Twice only buys clothes in fantastic condition from top brands, and they keep prices affordable, ~$20 for a pair of pants, ~$13 for a top. It’s a great place to shop expensive designers too. The best part about Twice, free returns and exchanges. So you can shop without stressing about fit. An added bonus, buying used clothing is not just easy on your wallet, its kinder to the earth too!

At Y&L we are dreaming of spring (and summer for that matter) fashion. We can’t wait to get out and soak up the warmer weather in our stylish new wardrobes. But while we must wait for spring, we can at least gawk over some fantastic looks. Today we are in a bohemian mood. Loving the layers, romantic prints, and comfortable carefree looks! Enjoy the picture inspiration.

3 Places To Shop Sustainable Fashion

Glam Noir Dress – $88 from Mata Traders

This year we are trying to make better purchases. Better for us, the environment, and our wallets. So we’ve been hunting for some affordable and sustainable clothing lines. It is so hard to find “sustainable clothing” that isn’t just yoga pants and t-shirts! A girl’s (and a guy’s) gotta wear more than just lounge wear!

Here are three places you can shop for more sustainable clothing and accessories. We promise you will find more than organic t-shirts, although they usually have these too!

  1. Mata Traders – This online shop is stocked   fair trade finds. The dresses are adorable, and so are their tops. You can feel good about making a purchase that supports fair trade practices and empowers your fellow woman! We are loving this polka-dotted little black dress with a sweetheart neckline! Perfect for date night 🙂

    Melanie Dress – $50 from Threads for Thought

  2. Threads for Thought – A great shop   organic cotton basics and some adorable dresses and tops. You can even find some of their goods at Whole Foods. Our favorite part about this brand is that they are affordable! The Melanie dress is only $50!
  3. Green Heart Shop – Another great fair trade online shop featuring clothing and accessories, as well as goodies for your home and kitchen! Fair trade not only ensures that workers receive a fair wage for their work, but also ensures environmental sustainability, supports participatory workplaces, and protects cultural identity. The prices are pretty reasonable and they have some great pieces that you could even rock to work. We are totally smitten with their Maureen Dress for $92.

    This stunner paired with a blazer would work for any office or board room!
