I thought I’d share another ethical What I Wore post as the novelty of being able to wear regular clothes still hasn’t worn off 3 months in! I’m hoping with a bit of practice I’ll be a bit less awkward in front of the camera too – I have to say I’m definitely much happier behind the camera!
This Pistill Dress from Gudrun Sjödén is a new favourite – super soft and really easy to wear. Unusually for a dress it doesn’t even need ironing before wearing, which is always something I value highly! Nothing I hate more than ironing. Just pop it on and out I go, which these days is a blessing. I love the mixed patterns of the dress too – it gives it a bit of cheekiness!
The Annie Parka from People Tree was something I received during my pregnancy, but I found that wearing a parka whilst pregnant was not the most flattering, shall I say. Thankfully, with my body almost back to relative normality the parka is actually very flattering and pretty much perfect for spring. Light and providing just enough protection from April showers, it’s my go to jacket at the moment. To be honest, with the great Scottish track record of weather, I’ll probably be wearing it all the way through from now until Autumn!
I’ve got some interesting ethical fashion articles for you, while I’m here:
Firstly, in case you missed it, this post from Ethical Consumer magazine on Are Any High Street Shops Ethical?
This post on Can We Afford To Shop Ethically? made for a solid read.
The Child Labour Experiment – the title says it all really.
Am I A Fool To Expect More Than Corporate Greenwashing from Lucy Siegle is an interesting read about H&M.
And finally, Fashion Revolution Week runs from 18th to 24th April. Don’t forget to ask retailers #whomademyclothes.
