Our outfit challenge for January was a freestyle one. Basically we could choose anything we wanted as long as it was sustainable or ethical. The Freestyle challenge is the chance for bloggers to show us their favourite style or try out something new.
Bella of Citizen Rosebud describes her outfit “I’m wearing a dress from Karina Dresses, an USA manufactured dress. Designed and sewn in the United States has its challenges, especially in a global economy that wants cheap prices for quality goods. Committed in giving their employees a living wage, and proud of their long term commitment to sustainable practices, Karina Dresses puts their money where their mouth is and also donates “100% of net proceeds of their LOVE CLUB membership to The Little Stars School of Varanasi, India (littlestarsschool.org), an organization that provides an education – including sewing classes! – for street children, especially young girls.”
At Joyatri’s Adventures in Vintage, a post on Long Term Commitment features a fantastic vintage outfit. She also talks about how she has bought beautiful quality clothes to last a long time.
My Freestyle Outfit (posted on Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog) which I have also entered in the Observer Ethical Awards (Check out how you can enter here!) features a top by ethical brand YouMeWe and trousers by ASOS Africa, vegetable tanned leather shoes by Dream in Green and second hand/ vintage jacket and bag.
I hope you are having a good week!
With warmest wishes
