This week I have a challenge for you! I want you to go through your wardrobe and make sure that you have at least three different combinations for everyone of your garment. It might take a lot of time, but it is a great exercise to edit your wardrobe and become fully aware of all the clothes you already own and save yourself time long term!
Hi there! I was very busy the last few days to write in the blog, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to share with you this beautiful sustainable outfit with you all! As I mentioned last week, I just got two super delicate vintage angora sweaters during sales, you can check the other one here, and I have rushed to wear them both!
Josephine is one those multitasking women that seem to be able to deal with everything. She is a slow fashion blogger, vintage store owner, creative director of her own brand and recently become the Fashion Revolution representative for Denmark. A few months ago I came across her work and invite her to share her experience and knowledge on the blog. I hope you like it!!
I must confess that I haven’t resisted the sales and a few days ago I bought a couple of vintage jumpers. As you know, I have spent most of the winter borrowing jumpers from my husband’s closet, which I love, as you can see here, but I wanted something a little bit slimmer and more feminine! It was love at first sign with this angora jumper!
Lately, my biggest obsession is about clothing composition. The material from which clothes are made is of significant importance when I acquire a new garment and I love the natural “noble” fibres, such as cashmere, linen or silk, well, who doesn’t? I guess the reason for this obsession is that in my experience the clothes made out of this materials are the ones that end up lasting the longest. My mother has passed me down amazing leather accessories or beautiful silk shirts, whereas most of the plastic based clothing ended up being discarded! When purchasing preloved clothes, I am prepared to pay a little extra for high-quality garments, which are usually produced from natural fibres.
Hello there, hope you had a wonderful start to the New Year!! I want 2018 to be a year full of energy, adventures and amazing moments and since it’s been scientifically proven that wearing bold colours improves your mood and your self-esteem hence I have chosen this colourful outfit to start the year!!
A few weeks ago, I find out that my husband is allergic to lambswool (I knew he was intolerant but his allergic has got much worse in the last few week) and it is a pity because I have to put away a few very nice winter jumpers. I am keeping them on the side because I haven’t made my mind whether I should give them away or keep them and hope that my husband’s allergy would eventually improve.
Growing up in Spain during the 80’s and 90’s second-hand clothes were not even part of the equation. The most someone would have had is a hand me down garment from a family member and believe me, there was nothing cool about it!! Thankfully things have changed and buying second-hand clothes is becoming easier and more acceptable. For those who I still on the fence, I have created a list of why you should be buying pre-loved clothes.
In 2016 The Fashion Revolution movement proposed “Haulternatives”, how to refresh your wardrobe without having to purchase new clothes. They suggested different ways to do it, from DIY projects to renting clothes.
Reduce, reuse and recycle is the mantra of all good ethical bloggers!! In order to reduce our purchases we need to start buying better and of course, keeping items for longer and today’s post is all about that!!
