I've been writing Coco & Vera for almost four years, and every once in a while it still strikes me how many facets of my personality never make an appearance in this space. It's not intentional. And it's certainly not because I feel obligated to portray myself in a certain way. The fact is, at the end of the day, this blog is about fashion and while I may be passionate about other things, they don't always seem entirely relevant to the discussion. For one thing, I suspect that many of you don't know that I was a card-carrying idealist with ambitions to change the world until I was almost eighteen. When I watched George W. Bush announce his declaration of war on Iraq, I realised how little power the North American democratic system truly bestows upon the people. I'm not likely to find myself running a country anytime soon. But that doesn't mean I can't affect positive social change, even through fashion - which is why I love Unikati & Co. I'm not going to lie, it was their beautiful collection of accessories that drew me in, but the fact that the pieces are produced ethically by fair-paid artisans in underprivileged communities around the world is what made me stay. My brass bomb ring came from Cambodia - it was, unbelievably, made of repurposed bombshell casings and bullets. Pretty pieces with created in good conscience? My idealistic teenaged self no doubt would approve.
