Reads of the Month
Whitney Bauck discusses the complicated relationship between fashion and politics for Fashionista. As our political climate changes, so does the way we consume. Bauck's writing can also be found on her blog Unwrinkling, which focuses on "fashion, theologically and thoughtfully considered". I'm, in a word, obsessed.
Good Magazine has created a great resource for understanding plastic recycling. "What Happens After the Bin" breaks down each type of plastic, how/if it is recyclable, and tips for best practices. Interactive and informative!
I've joined the My Honey & Co. team to bring you a round up of ten things that are really exciting founder Salina Mahoney and me.

Videos of the Month
PhD and Masters students in Mechanical Engineering, Fiber Science & Apparel Design, Physics, and Textile Engineering at Cornell University came together to create "The Fiberizer". Watch this short and sweet video about the 2016 project "diverting post-consumer textile waste from landfills" by giving new life to used clothing.

Podcasts of the Month
As a fashion history nerd this podcast is EVERYTHING. However, whether you love fashion or not, it is fascinating to hear the importance of clothes in history and daily life.
I've already plugged this great podcast through My Honey & Co., but it deserves another shout out. Code Switch discusses all things race and identity in the U.S. I especially recommend their recent episode on the events in Charlottesville.
If you're not listening to the sweet sounds of Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams already, what are you doing? After about a year of subscribing to 2 Dope Queens I can confidently say that these comedians/actresses/queens never fail to make me laugh out loud.
Subscribe, so you never miss a post!
