Notes from a Swedish stylist


Clothing Made Right

Jacket, Sukka Citta. Jeans, deadstock Levi’s.

A few weeks ago, I got an email from this great slow fashion brand that really caught my attention. The thing that sets this brand apart from other slow fashion brands is that they work directly with villages on a very small scale to ensure that the fabrics are made in the right way. #MadeRight is a standard they created to ensure that the artisans are paid a living wage, use environmentally sustainable practices, and preserve their traditional culture. Their mission is to drive change for inclusive growth within the craft industry in Indonesia. My jacket was handwoven in the village of Medono. Read more about the villages they work with here!


Three Things On My Mind

1. Inspired by the Nordic lifestyle, Myk+ set out to create non-toxic and eco-friendly cleaning products that are good for people and the environment. To them, this means a healthy, uncomplicated approach towards home living.

2. My friend Patricia opened my eyes to the amazing Minnie Ripperton. I had heard her hit song Lovin you, but not much else. The song Patricia played me that I really liked was Les Fleurs. She’s called the queen of the whistle register; just listen to Here we go, and you’ll understand why.
After that, I did some research and found that Minnie was one of the first celebrities to go public with her breast cancer diagnosis, but didn’t disclose she was terminally ill. In 1977, she became a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society. In 1978, she received the American Cancer Society’s Courage Award. She is also the mother of brilliant actress and comic Maya Rudolph.

3. We just got a new, wooden, made-to-order table for the office. Next week you’ll find a big article here on Make it last, telling you all about how the table was made.


Conditioning Mascara

Mascara, LashFood Conditioning Volume 3-D.

So, I’m really picky when it comes to mascara, and ever since we started Make it last I’ve been looking for the best natural option. The other week I found IT—the mascara with a capital M. It lasts all day and makes my lashes look looooong.
On the box it says: “Formula that not only offers immediate volumizing effects, but infuses the lashes with a complex blend of natural ingredients that makes frail and brittle lashes thicker and longer on a cellular level”. Sound just as good as I found the result to be.
