Ditching Fast Fashion – Six Months On

Fast Fashion. It’s hard to go a day without somebody talking about the impact of fast fashion, its everywhere!  Since the Stacey Dooley documentary aired a few months ago, the blogging community has been awash with those opting to ditch fast fashion and change their shopping habits – although a lot of these views quickly vanished when Black Friday came around and my Twitter feed was jam-packed with affiliate links to fast fashion brands. Oh Well. I myself talked about my relationship with fast fashion in this post during the summer. Here I spoke about my decision to ditch fast…

Three Steps to Style with John Lewis Newcastle.

John Lewis is one of those department stores that has always been part of my life growing up – does anybody else remember when they used to be Bainbridges? But I can’t say it was somewhere I shopped at regularly. It was only recently I discovered they had their own personal stylists in store when I came across some of their styling team on Instagram. A session with a personal stylist has always been something that’s interested me. I’ve always loved fashion but never felt confident in putting outfits together. Earlier in the year my mum and I said we would…

But as the summer hit, I found myself shopping more and more on the high-street. So the series quickly dwindled. If you saw my last post you’ll know I’ve decided to give up fast fashion completely. So I’m happy…

Saying Goodbye To Fast Fashion and Shopping More Ethically.

Today I’m here to discuss some thoughts on fast fashion. Now I’m the first to admit I love fashion. Clothes are a huge interest of mine and I love experimenting with different styles and trends. I’ve tried in the past to have a ‘minimalistic’ wardrobe with basic colours etc. But that really does not work for me – at all. I love colour, I love prints and I love having fun with my outfits. But that doesn’t mean I can’t shop more consciously. It’s weird but since turning vegetarian a year ago, I’ve become more aware of how my lifestyle…

Feeling Confident With Summer Style.

TOP: MONKI (SIMILAR) | TROUSERS: BOOHOO | SHOES: XYLONDON* | EARRINGS: BOOHOO If you’re anything like me the words ‘summer fashion’ usually generates feelings of horror and panic. When I was younger summer didn’t bother me all that much. I spent 90% of my time outside, had a face full of freckles and tan lines where my socks had been. But the older you get the more self-conscious you get about your body and how it looks. My legs are a huge insecurity for me and have been for years. Previously I think I was more self-conscious of the paleness…
