Wonderfully Weird Visits The Unique Fashion Style Of Recyled, Organic, and Vegan Couture!! Kanarian Kindred, Guest Blogger

Guest blogger Wonderfully Weird (Kanarian Kindred) takes us to the newer world of organic, natural and vegan fashion and beauty products. Given that so much has gone on in this realm, to get an independent thought about what works in her aesthete and what doesn’t – and still remains true to the natural/organic and/or vegan thesis is valuable

In today’s society it seems everyone is chasing the next big thing, especially in fashion. Whether it’s the new Jordan’s, Prada slippers, or Louboutin’s, everyone wants a piece of top products. This is fine but what about those with a weird sense of style? The person marching to the beat of their own drum, and straying from the normal fashion market.

Have no fear because Wonderfully Weird has arrived. The weekly blog posting various fashion items including: clothing, jewelry, shoes, and styling tips considered odd by others. My style is different from most because it focuses on funky, different, and classy pieces others tend to shy away from.

This week focuses on the art of recycling and living organically. Therefore, these pieces include items natural, organic or vegan-made. These pieces range from clothes to beauty item. Enjoy…

We begin with The Natural Store based in England. According to their website:

“Here at the Natural Store, we aim to make shopping a pleasure. You’ll find all the departments you’d expect, in one of the world’s finest stores, simply brimming with gorgeous goodies – Ladies’ Fashion and Beauty, Gentlemen’s Clothing and Grooming, a Foodhall, Pets, a Baby and Children’s Department, Gardening and Home Interiors, and more. Each and every item at The Natural Store is luxurious and ethical – embracing design and sustainability, is beautifully finished and simply delicious. To this end we work with many unique artisans and designers, as well as a selection of high quality well-known brands. At the last count we had over 3000 products and 200 brands from around the world to choose from, and our relationships and products are growing fast.

The Natural Store is a different type of Department Store – dealing only with suppliers who operate on a Fair Trade basis, have high ethical and moral values, or who try to minimize their impact on the environment. So whether you’re after individually made organic chocolates endorsed by the Soil Association, sensual underwear in organic cotton and hemp/silk or a wind-up radio so you can tune to your favorite station, we’re the natural choice.”
