Sustainability is super on trend right now. It seems that every influencer is now on board with sustainability, even if they weren’t before. I hope they stick to it. For some of us we’ve been campaigning for the fashion industry and consumers to start taking responsibility for what is happening to our environment and to stop and think about our purchasing choices we make.
When it comes to buying a dress, I like to know that I can style many different ways and wear it all year round. This is why I love a slip dress. It’s versatile, easy to style and it can be worn all year round. I fell in love with this Vero Moda Black Lace Recycled Dress from Born at Dawn. It ticked all the boxes for me. Black, pretty and recycled polyester.
Below I show you how to style it up 5 ways: casual, evening, with boots and a belt, styled over jeans and with a vintage tee and trousers. There are so many other ways of styling this dress, but I encourage you to style it up your own way and I want to see too!!!!
I know Christmas is right around the corner and I know it’s probably silly to have a wishlist but hey why not? My family doesn’t really do a big Christmas so I know these pieces won’t be under the tree but hey that’s ok. Can still use it as a hint hint to the husband haha. My birthday is just around the corner.
I’m not going to lie, I love fashion, I really really do. I look around and pretty much want everything, but there’s a few big problems here: 1. I don’t have all the money in the world, 2. I don’t actually need it all, and 3. Most of what I see may look super cool from afar but as soon as I get close and touch it, disappointment sets in.
I'm a sucker for a wrap dress. I just can't get enough of them. Now I must say though, if you don't buy the right wrap dress for your body shape it can go all wrong. Not every wrap dress is suited for the same person. For example, I have what you may call a big rack, yes I am blessed in the boobage area, so I wouldn't go for a dress that would have me spilling out. I would want a bit more coverage so I am comfortable and not constantly starting at my own chest. Now if you are wanting a wrap dress that is a bit more sexy and want to show your amazing cleavage, do it!!!!
I'm keeping this weeks wishlist short and sweet. Every single piece I've included this week is something I would wear over and over again. When looking for new items to add to my wardrobe I always think in outfits. I like to see how I can piece things together or think about how these items would fit in well with what I have already.
How do you accessorise when you have a mohawk? Well big ass earrings of course!!!!! Why not accentuate my already crazy Einstein hair with earrings! I say go big or go home! When it comes to earrings I want a pair that are super special and have lovely lovely creators behind them. There's something so amazing about knowing the story behind the brand. And if my purchase can keep a small brand going, then I will gladly support!
I want to talk about vintage and secondhand clothing today. In a world full of cheap clothing, it’s good to take a step back and re-evaluate your clothing spending habits. Here’s the deal, I love clothes, I really do, but I love really beautiful nice clothes and I can’t always afford really nice clothing all the time. And to be honest, I don’t want to contribute to the whole let’s produce so much shit and then throw it away game.
