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…

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.

Secondhand Style #1 – What an egg-cellent dress

As I mentioned in this post the majority of my wardrobe has been bought in charity shops, eBay and Depop. As a huge bargain hunter and savvy secondhand searcher, I want to start featuring these more often in my outfit posts. So I’ve decided to begin a little feature called Secondhand Style so you can see all the fab bits and bobs I’ve managed to pick up, and believe me there are loads. I thought there would be no better way to start this off than with my best Depop purchase to date. The White Pepper was one of my favourite…
