About

Even My Clothes are Sustainable ! ! !

Mottainai is a Japanese word meaning "don't waste." But it is a little deeper than that...

I feel it is important to create a conscious culture - one that is aware of it's impact on the environment. This includes resource usage. By shopping vintage we are part of movement who is decidedly reducing their impact, and we do not have to sacrifice style or quality either!

When people hear I am a geologist, I get a sideways look immediately followed by a "that's rocks right?"

Little ol' me, who loves four inch heels and structured blazers, also loves our environment. Mottainai shop marries these two loves. And who doesn't love a happy marriage?

I particularly love the 1970s and 1980s. I often joke that I was born in the wrong decade because my naturally curly hair forms an awesome afro, and would be the envy of the disco! My shop definitely reflects my adoration for that period. That said, I believe in incorporating fun vintage pieces into your wardrobe in a chic and simple way!

Take a look around and enjoy!!
