A few weeks back, I came across a website run by a very well-dress 18 year-old Australian girl named Kani. Her blog is a bit like Le Blog de Betty, though imagine instead of modeling outfits accompanied by music clips, she shows outfits and baked goods (i.e. cupcakes, etc). Clothes, however, are her main focus, with each entry serving as a virtual invitation into her closet, with Kani citing the newest trends and wares (some of which she has made herself!). She is super creative, and beyond simply being talent, hyper-motivated. She’s may still be young, but she’s got big dreams.
I’m showing her site some love not only because it obviously falls well in-line with our mission here at Retail DJ, but also because her execution is fabulous. Another thing I really love about K Is For Kani is that she is big on vintage clothing and sustainability. She notes on her “about” page:
In a world where fast fashion is at it’s peak, and clothes are flooding landfills, thrifting clothes fills me with joy. It’s sort of like saving orphaned animals on the street, but saving clothes from going to the landfill when there is so much more potential in them left! For some reason, I really hate things going to waste so I suppose my love for vintage was also triggered by this.
So for today, I’m sending hugs and kisses to a blogger across the world who brings tons of fashionistas a little closer each day. Check out this sampling of K Is For Kani, and be sure to visit her site directly via www.kisforkani.blogspot.com:
