Vintage Finds

Killem With Chic originally started off as a fashion blog and evolved into a clothing brand. I love fashion and appreciate the art, beauty and intricate work that goes into pieces. It’s artistic and creative and should be used as an expression to show the world who you are but I also know the ugly side of it all and I no longer want to be a part of it… the clothing industry is literally killing our planet and people around the world.  It has a huge environmental impact, including water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste. When we think of pollution, we envision raw sewage running into our oceans and coal power plants. We don't often think of the shirts on our backs. But the overall impact the apparel industry has on our planet is catastrophic.  I recently sold and donated all my shit to live / work / travel the US in an RV with my boyfriend. (Follow us @lejoyride) I had accumulated an overwhelming amount of clothes over the past years, more than half of it I never even touched. While my pile of shit got smaller and smaller I noticed that the items I kept weren’t the $800 pair of Chanel shoes I wore three times but unique items I had scored at a vintage shop or thrift store I had found in different cities and countries, these items aren't just unique but I know I helped create a sustainable environment. Yes, buying pre-owned fashion is eco-friendly! Second hand clothing is one of the best ways to deal with textile waste as most clothes gets trashed after just a few wears. Second hand clothes gets used by a new person for a few more years and extends the lifespan of the garment. Clothing getting discarded generates an enormous amount of waste, buying second hand clothing can take years before touching a landfill.
4 years ago I had a dream to start a clothing line and turn it into a business. Not only was I able to achieve that dream but it surpassed what I had envisioned. Although it's bittersweet I know it's time to move on from creating and selling tee's. We are currently living in a very dark time, and doing what is right for the planet and it's people is in alignment with who I am and who I'm becoming. My dream was always to help women look and feel their best now I will be doing it in a more sustainable way. During my travels I will be visiting and living in different states, cities and towns all over the US and wandering into every single vintage store I can find choosing one of a kind items to add to KWC's store that will hopefully end up in your closet as well. Thank you in advance for accompanying me in my journey. Can't wait to fashionably save the world together!
