Your Brand is Not Inclusive: Stop Using Fat People’s Hope as a Marketing Tactic
MLMs come in waves, and the most recent craze is ZYIA, a trendy, spendy athleisure brand taking Facebook by storm. I originally got invited to a ZYIA group by a coworker's family member. I checked it out, and that's the first time I saw the claim that ZYIA has something for "everybody and everyBODY."
What to Wear to a Pandemic
I have one outfit for the pandemic: my pjs - bubble-gum pink flowers floating across electric-blue flannel. I watch a lot of movies in them, and these days I take special pleasure in noting costume design. Take a break from sweat pants and lockdown with these filmic wonders -
You Can No Longer Trust The Mirror Selfies.
There are several types of people who decry social media. Some of them bring peer-reviewed articles and facts. These people are usually accurate and justified, and sometimes annoying at parties.

Fashion trends come and go with time but they always seem to come back around again in some shape or form. May it be gogo boots from the 60's or 90's denim. Looking at what's all the rage I feel it's safe to say we're on a 90's-rewind. That wouldn't be so bad if we were digging through our parent's closets and reliving the past but it really isn't so. Faux vintage is what's in and with that comes a price not attached to the top. Looking at other aspects of our "trend landscape" concerns seem to arise. So instead of discussing how dreadful cheetah print is or flared denim, I want to bring your attention to fashion fails we face as a society and what we can do to change them.
Death to Denim
My grandmother grew up in a small town in Sonora, Mexico, living with 10 siblings. She was the eldest daughter, so she was in charge of ironing her brothers’ jeans. (Exhibit 478 to answer the call: Unionize Eldest Daughters. I’m getting it tattooed under my left buttcheek. If all you who know the eldest-daughter-experience want to get a matching one, truly, let me know.) The iron was made of iron, heated over coals, to flatten the rough, coarse material of small-town Mexican denim. She hated ironing all those tough jeans. As soon as her own Mexican-American daughters were old enough to iron, and the iron itself was modern enough to not be made of iron, she taught them and left them to iron their father’s clothes.
Make Red Hats Wearable Again.
I love hats. Big hats. Tiny hats. Knit hats. Hats with a wide brim. Berets and bucket hats. My mother's always told me I look good in them, and her praise encouraged me to start a hat collection from a young age. Name a kind of hat, and I've got it in a bin inside my closet.
Creating A Capsule Wardrobe
Everything is so hectic these days. We’re pushed to be our most productive selves all the time, to HUSTLE. We’re pushed to make so many decisions in our work life, our home life, and our social life. We’re just trying to balance it all! It’s so easy to get burned out though, and even having to make small creative decisions can take away from the energy we have to complete larger, more creative projects. That’s where the capsule wardrobe comes in. It’s a simple concept. You create a wardrobe of carefully curated items that not only “spark joy” as Marie Kondo would say, but are easily put together to create simple, yet stylish outfits in no time.
Have Yourself an Upcycled Little Christmas
Sustainable, or ethical, fashion continues to rise in popularity, garnering widespread chatter in the fashion world & popular culture. Seeing as how sustainable fashion is better for both your budget & the environment, what better year than 2020, amidst a global pandemic, to make upcycled clothing your gift of choice this holiday season.
Manly men always wore dresses.
So recently the biggest argument besides why masks have to be worn in covid hot spots involves Harry Styles snd his vogue cover shoot shoot. For those of you who have managed to avoid Twitter during the pandemic, Harry Styles killed it when he wore a dress in vogue magazine.This has of course led to several right wing tweeters to create the “bring back manly men” movement.
Chevere Means: Upcycling and Giving Back
Since starting Chevere Means Cool I've become more aware of the multiple alternatives there are to fast fashion. Of course, this is no news to anyone but sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming or hard to look into what these alternatives actually are. So, with this podcast, my goal is also to help curate some of these options for you.
Sustainability On The Go: Sukk Straws
Recently, I had the chance to chat with the team at Sukk Straws, a Los Angeles based company with a mission to make sustainability as chic as ever. I came across Sukk straws at a photo shoot and was immediately drawn to their sleek design and pristine packaging. What really stood out to me though, was not only their ability to create a product that I needed, but also something that I know I can feel good about using.
