10 Years of The Style Sample: A Lazy Retrospective

2019 marked my 10th year of blogging and the 10th anniversary of this site. Bring on the aluminum! When I was looking through photos to include in the How to Create a Marketing Campaign post, it was like an unexpected journey through the past decade. 2014, 2012, 2010… there are a lot of memories on this site.

No New Clothes // A Commitment to Sustainable Fashion

Come closer so I can tell you a secret: For the past year, I haven't bought any new clothes. Given the content of this site, you may not believe me—but it's true. As much as I love fashion, I've been thinking more about what I use, how it affects the environment, and how I can live more sustainably. Fashion manufacturing is a big polluter—second only to oil production, debatably—and after doing some research and thinking about how...
