Encircled Clothing - The Most Grown Up Purchase I've Made | Plus Encircled Black Friday Deals & Sales! (& How To Get In On The Private Sale!)
If I am being honest, for most of my life I really never thought much about the clothing I bought other than the price. I would run from sale rack to sale rack, carrying the best coupon, and working the best deals. [Probably why I love Travel Hacking - but it's a better hobby because I collect memories and experiences now, rather than stuff ;) ] This describes the Clumsy Girl (me, of course!) version 1.0.
As time has gone by I have learned from others and grown to appreciate the value of investing in fewer pieces that I truly love and that will last longer, rather than just buying whatever I find on the sale rack that I didn't even need. An improvement! Clumsy Girl 2.0.
In 2018 Clumsy Girl 3.0 emerged. Okay, maybe I should say Clumsy Girl version 2.5 because I have a loooong way to go. Enter encircled, an ethical fashion brand out of Toronto, Canada and founded by Kristi Soomer (brave + boss podcast here) . Their clothes are thoughtfully designed, sustainable, and ethically made. I originally came across encircled because, as a traveler, I am always looking for ways to streamline my packing and find the most ideal clothing for travel - comfortable, versatile, and high quality.
About encircled Clothing
Encircled is a fascinating brand accomplishing truly impressive feats despite existing in an age where fast fashion is everywhere. Encircled designs and produces modern basics (like the wanderer sleeveless tee) and versatile multi-way clothing (like the original Chrysalis Cardi now in petite, regular, and maxi). These elements combined give you limitless possibilities so you can do "more with less" and be "more with less". Love that phrase.
Beyond the design and the streamlining, more minimalist wardrobe style, encircled is doing this ethically and sustainably. Kristi and her team are extremely conscious about the fabrics they choose, the environmental impact of creating those fabrics, and paying fare wages to the highly skilled individuals working in their sewing studios. Encircled is a Certified B Corporation - a business who balances purpose and profit.
Encircled isn't about making a high volume of low quality clothes that will soon be in a landfill just to make quick cash. They are about thoughtful, high quality, functional designs that you will actually wear all the time - at home and on your travels! This is slow fashion, and I love it.
My first encircled purchase
My first encircled purchase - the reversible pencil skirt and the wanderer sleeveless tee - is the most grown up purchase I have ever made. It was the first truly intentional clothing purchase I have ever made. I thought of, not just my personal style, but also the environment, and the people behind the clothing before making this purchase. Something I had never done before.. I wore the these items well in Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Europe and continue to do so. They helped me travel, yet again, in carry on only luggage for weeks on end. The cost was high, true. But so is the value, the longevity, and the meaning of the purchase. And at the end of the day.... isn't the cost of fast fashion actually much higher? We don't always think of that if we aren't the ones who pay that 'price'...
