how to make the most of the clothes you own

The clothes we own (or most of them) can be under-worn or not even worn at all. In fact, it's estimated we only wear 20 per cent of our clothes 80% of the time according to an article published in the Wall Street Journal. The first step to making the most of the clothes you already own is to shop your wardrobe.

dress with sense: the practical guide to a conscious closet

After my mocks have finished I've gone slightly mad with the book orders, after Tolly's recommendation I ordered 'to die for' by Lucy Siegle and after flicking through a magazine a few weeks ago I stumbled on 'Dress with Sense: the practical guide to a conscious closest'. Initially, the fun illustrations drew me to the book but it was the chapters that covered the whole life cycle of a garment that led me to purchasing Dress with Sense.

your guide to shopping on depop

I love Depop. A fantastic alternative to charity shopping, if you haven't heard of depop it's an app that allows you to sift through and buy second hand clothes, makeup or even shoes therefore you can curate a second hand wardrobe that suits your personal style.

the trouble with today

The trouble with today is that it's too long, or not long enough. Or that even in the present we are all too focused on the future, or the past. When these 4:00am thoughts hit you in the middle of the day, yup that's when you've hit a brick in the road. (the art on the left is inspired by Rookie mag, a fabulous website if you are not yet aware of it).

a few of my favourite ethical brands

Following on from my chat about ethical fashion a few weeks ago, a lot of you wanted posts on my favourite ethical brands. I think if I listed all of my favourites in one post it would be incredibly long so I think I'm going to split it into chunks, let me know if you do like this post and I'll be sure to write about some more of my favourite ethical brands! To anyone that's said ethical fashion isn't 'fashionable' well this post might persuade you otherwise!

the denim jacket

This post has been such a long time in the making. After a good few months at school, I finally finished making my denim jacket and it deserves a post dedicated to itself, therefore I've put together a compilation of slightly blurry, candid shots (oh and me looking like a 12 year old in the first pic). These photos have also made me realise how much I need to get a haircut, I need my short hair back.
