Lately I’ve been re-assessing my relationship with fashion. Don’t get me wrong – I love everything about it, from tailoring to trends to glossy magazines. But I can’t help but ignore the impact that this sort of consumerist culture has more broadly – on various ethical issues and the environment. And that’s where I’d like to steer this blog.
I’ve been blogging on and off since I escaped the shackles of censored internet at boarding school. About fashion, mostly, but lifestyle bits and pieces as well. In January 2016, I started this blog with a view to being more mindful with my wardrobe – “curating” it, even – to reduce my consumption.
I now want to take it to the next level. I want to continue my capsule wardrobe, but actively look for responsible brands, explore ways of reducing and recycling – all from the point of view of a girl who loves clothes just as much as you do (and finds cutting back pretty difficult). I’m looking forward to the challenge!
In the meantime, if you have any recommendations for responsible, sustainable brands / blogs / etc., I would love to hear them!
