Fashionable Cause: Osborn Design

I am totally digging on these Osborn Design shoes. And these are not typically my style at all. But I love the prints and splashes of color. And well frankly who wouldn't like a pair of candy cane striped willy wonka shoes.

The thing that I'm digging the most about these shoes is the fact that there fair trade shoes! They're all individually cut and handmade! That is love right there. haha, I sound like a hippy, but I simply adore them. You can even see a photo of the people who lovingly create these shoes, here! Oh, and the soles are made from recycled tires.

I'm loving all this fair trade, eco-friendly fashions. And its great because I feel like more and more fashion companies are getting a conscience! Which for me is super important!

What do you think ?

+ I'm moving back to school today. Entering my last year of college is erm.. to say the least, a bit intimidating and exciting all at once. But I still have not officialized my internship yet, and classes start next week. It makes me feel wierd.. cause I'm typically prepared and boom some random things happened, and I had to add another class and change my 6 credit internship to a 3 credit one. haha. Life is unpredictable, I guess.
+ I haven't been reading any blogs lately, so I'm sorry for the lack of commenting. I love reading blogs, but life is getting crazy for me. I really still want to consistently blog but I'm not sure how it'll go. But I'm definitely trying to stay on posting schedule (Mon, Weds, Fri).

Love you guys. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!!

Good luck with school. :) I'm sure everything will turn out okay! And don't worry about not reading blogs, take some time to relax before school starts.

they're getting a conscience. AND maybe the fact that it's what consumer trend is gearing towards. more and most clients and customers want environmentally friendly items, which is totally great.
