At Reformation, fashion and sustainability coexist. Created in 2009 by Yael Aflalo, we design and manufacture limited-edition collections in our own factory. Located in downtown Los Angeles, we manufacture most of our products in our own sustainable sewing factory. By cutting out the middleman and selling online and in our own boutiques, we eliminate traditional retail markups. We source sustainable fabrics and vintage garments, and incorporate sustainable practices throughout our supply chain to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact generated by most fashion brands. From our heat-reflecting roof and use of renewable energy, to the recycled hangers in our stores and 100% recycled packaging for every order shipped, sustainability is core to our business at every level. It is our goal to raise awareness around the impact fashion has on the environment and at the same time offer sustainable solutions and choices. It is our mission to lead and inspire a sustainable way to be fashionable.

So, dievca ended up picking the Oscar de la Renta dress and was planning to wear Proenza Schouler heels with a gray clutch.
When doing a last try-on with the proper Spanx underpinnings, dievca managed to put her thumb through a seam and she doesn’t have turquoise thread to fix it. Plus, the heels – any heels, were killing her knee.
So, back to the drawing board with flats in mind.
And this is why dievca always surprises Master with her outfits…she is a Disaster.
Warm and Fuzzy for the Autumn.

the state of being diverse; variety.“there was much diversity in the style of the reports”
Master has made statements about diversity to dievca in the past. He hasn’t mentioned it lately, but that might be because dievca works hard to create an atmosphere that offers diversity. And, in return, Master has made sure the venues, restaurants, activities are diverse, too. So, between presentation outfits, activities, themes, cosplay, etc.
Master and dievca are keeping on it.
Variety is the Spice of Life!
But like the photo says — diversity does make for some strange bedfellows and creates situations for dievca and Master to laugh at when things go south.
(Ex: Thai food that about killed us both~whew.)

Paint It Black
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby it just happens ev’ryday
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goesI want to see your face painted black, black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun blotted out from the sky.
I want to see it painted, painted, painted, painted black, yea
The Reformation Betty Dress. Not too short, not too long. A georgette midi dress with short sleeves, seaming and a hook/zip closure in the back. The fit is close through the bodice and waist, but the skirt goes a bit full. There are shorts underneath – Made from 100% viscose.
