Shopping Strikes and What We Spied (and Mostly Liked) at the Trade Shows A Thing or Two with Claire and Erica

    • Leisure

How do we train ourselves to be better fashion consumers? Claire, who is as surprised as you are that she’s three months into a shopping ban, has some learnings. And! We’re delivering plenty of intel from our visit to the home and lifestyle trade shows (AKA, the time we went to the Javits Center for fun). 
 
The linkage:
 
A couple of things we love: 1) coupon codes, which you can now find here and 2) voicemails—so leave us one at 833-632-5463 any ol’ time. 
 
We’re all about Man Repeller’s rundown of Qs to pop before you shop.
 
Read up on Livia Firth, the co-founder and creative director of Eco-Age, and her 30 Wears Challenge.
 
Reporting from the tradeshows: COLOR! See: Poketo, Hay, Chilewich, Vitra, and Herman Miller.
 
Glassware (and colorful glassware specifically)! See: R+D Lab, Lateral Objects, Kinto, Sugahara, and Hawkins New York.
 
Design-y first aid! See: Airinium Urban Air Mask 2.0, Bioswiss bandages, and, elsewhere, emergency preparedness kits from Judy and Preppi. 
 
Oat milk / vegan chocolate! See: not-yet-launched Schnog + Noss and Raaka.
 
Good-looking sustainable food and drink containers! See: Hay’s Sowden water bottle, Stojo cups, Porter by W&P make-and-take containers, and S’well Eats containers. Related: the sleek Aarke seltzer maker and, ugh, crystal water bottles.
 
Wellness patches! See: The Good Patch.
