The #SecondhandFirst Outfit Challenge

secondhandfirst Traid

Secondhand First Week is organised by fashion reuse charity TRAID, to celebrate all things secondhand while committing to using more of our existing resources, rather than buying new. It involves a week of events, workshops and initiatives between 17th – 23rd November. TRAID is also asking for people to take the #secondhandfirst pledge to encourage people to commit to sourcing a percentage of their wardrobe secondhand.

Here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, we will be celebrating the #secondhandfirst week with a little challenge of our own. It is pretty simple really.

All you need to do is put together a fantastic outfit featuring some or all secondhand clothes, take a picture about it, post it on your blog and then send me the link to ceri@heathcotecommunications.co.uk by midnight on 16th November (UK time).

It would also be great if you could mention Secondhand First Week in your post and link back to us here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers. I will post a round up of all of the #secondhandfirst outfits on 17th November.

You could also get even more involved by wearing something secondhand every day for the week and share by submitting your photos and styling tips to sarah@traid.org.uktweet @traid using the hashtag #secondhandfirst, or post on  Facebook page /TRAIDcharity. Find out more about the fun activities going on for #Secondhandfirst here

I look forward to seeing your #secondhandfirst outfits!

With warmest wishes

Ethical Fashion Bloggers Valentines Outfit Challenge

Valentines day might seem like a distant memory, but I assure you the best things in life are worth waiting for. For February, the Ethical Fashion Bloggers were challenged to create an outfit for Valentines Day or with a theme of romance using ethical and sustainable clothing and accessories. Here are the beautiful outfits that they created.

Citizen Rosebud looks stunning a vintage plaid maxi in an outfit inspired by UK blogger Vintage Vixen.

Mary Van Note opted for a beautifully romantic outfit which included a 1960′s vintage red lace dress.

Jean of all Trades choose to wear a very stylish and versatile red dress, a really eyecatching outfit!

Pao of Project Mimosa tuned up this tunic for the occasion, a cafe date with her husband.

Franca of Oranges and Apples looks beautiful in a vintage floral dress for her anniversary at the shore.

 

 At Thrifted Shift, a Valentines treat with a stylish but thrifty outfit inspired by raspberries and chocolate!

Finally I opted for flowers which I love anytime but especially on Valentine Day, you can check the outfit out on my blog Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog 

If you would like to join the fun (and outfit challenges) at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, you can find out how to do so here.

With warmest wishes
