I'v been reading the Hip Mountain Mama blog for a while and have learned that they operate their business in a sooperdedooper ethical manner. I also love the focus on gratitude, hand making things, the colorful-ness, and the fun!
After the great closet cleanout/sale, the only wardrobe piece really missing was a good all-purpose, all-weathr skirt in a neutral color. I went to the Hip Mountain Mama shop to purchase something that would go with all of my shirts, is good for all seasons, and will hold up well.
Here it is!!
It's got a great cargo pocket, which I love!I feel all kinds of girly in this skirt! It is so cute with a tank top, and I can't wait to bust out my mini-collection of thrifted thermals for fall and winter. It's amazing how many awesome thermal tops -a weakness of mine- you can find at garage sales and thrift stores. Mine all looked new when I got them and cost about $1.99 each. Yay! I hang them to dry to they last a long time.
Anyway...back to this awesome skirt! It is handmade from hemp and organic cotton, and has a great foldover waist. I even unrolled the waistband, pulled it up, and tried it out as a dress and it's really cute! I am in love with hemp skirts that look a little crisp and tailored, and this one is wonderful. Hip Mountain Mama has lots more really cute, unique, and ethical clothing, and the owner, Suzy, was really helpful! I don't even want to think about the damage I could do e-shopping this site...I love these, and this, and these- oh the cuteness!
My new duds!
