It’s Sunday, and it’s time for some relaxing couch time and web surfing.   This week, we’re revisiting the indie retailer, and focusing on some more of our favorites.   When we say that we live to shop, we mean it.   From ethical to eclectic, these indie retailers are definitely worth checking out.



One of the more recent corporate trends in fashion is the rise of ethical and socially-conscious style.   Ethica is one such retailer, and is the perfect example to show you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for the sake of your ideals.   In fact, for Ethica, “showstopping design is non-negotiable.”   We agree.

Who doesn’t love a good print?  We definitely do!   And being ethical never felt (or looked) so good.  Check out these Valentine Gauthier Organic Cotton Kilim Shorts:

With the tagline, “Look Good, Do Good,”  Helpsy is another retailer that believes you don’t have to choose between fashion and social-consciousness.   Looking for a particular type of socially-positive attire?  Helpsy let’s you search by category, from recycled to cruelty-free.

Nothing says Spring like polka dots, and this Andrea Diodati Polka Pleat Skirt makes us think happy thoughts.

Collective Habit


Let’s face it:  shopping is the collective habit of all fashionistas.   Collective Habit is a retailer dedicated to brand and style discovery.   Founded with the mission of “bridging the gap between high fashion and reality,” Collective habit makes fantasy fashion a reality (and who wouldn’t love that?).

It’s pretty clear.  This mettle Fair Trade Decoeur Lucite Clutch is a work of art.
