Tagpop – Making Ethical Shopping Easy and Fun

It’s not always easy or convenient to shop ethically. Price may be a factor as many ethical brands can be costly. Also, it is hard to discern between a true ethical brand and one that may be using buzz words like ‘conscious’ or ‘green’ as a marketing tool. The majority of companies are somewhere in the middle, meaning they aren’t horrible with human rights violations or pollution, but they aren’t the ideal places to shop either. One true way to shop with a totally clear conscious is to buy pre-owned clothing – but hitting up thrift shops isn’t something a mom of two has a lot of time or patience for.

Enter: Tagpop.

Imagine having a personal stylist picking only the coolest pieces at a thrift store and creating an entire online shop out of them. To make it even more fun, (and for the company to save on resources, of course) what you actually get is a ‘mystery’ chosen by a stylist. Tagpop makes it simple to shop pre-owned clothing by curating the selection and then selecting the items for you.

Here’s how it works – You choose from a category such as t-shirts, flannels, denim jackets, dresses, or ‘bundles’ and the stylist will get your sizing and then send you something. I picked a t-shirt and a denim jacket, and I specifically requested an oversized denim for the look I was going for. I love how both of my pieces were really unique and yet still on trend with today’s fashion. I’m already planning on belting my denim jacket over a dress next time I wear it. Side note: If for some reason you don’t like what you got, you can exchange up to two times per item – they just ask you to either give yours away to someone who loves it, or donate it back to charity.

What I really love though is the company mission – by 2020 they plan to have repurposed 2 million tons of apparel. Their goal is to solve the textile waste crisis and make clothing have a moral value behind it. I can get behind that too.

I’ve come to truly value slow fashion appreciating how clothing is made and trying to shop sustainable clothing (even if it’s a pair of sustainable socks) as often as possible. Thankfully companies like Tagpop are making it a lot more convenient for me to shop with a conscious – and look great while doing it.

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
