ETHICAL CHIC

So it's almost winter time and I'm going through my wardrobe to find pieces to rework my wardrobe so I'm not buying anything new.

ETHICAL CHIC

So it's almost winter time and I'm going through my wardrobe to find pieces to rework my wardrobe so I'm not buying anything new. I found one of our gorgeous EKOLUV vintage dresses, my favourite Zara winter coat and boots I had bought in Rome on my Europe trip last year. Pair this with my Mettle Ceres Clutch and my Joint Bone Ring which is not only Fair Trade but made from recycled lucite and or bombshell brass and I've got a lovely winter outfit that is luxury and Ethical Chic. I couldn't resist to start planning my other winter outfits for work and travel and our Kowtow range is just the perfect collection to wear, it's so soft and comfortable plus with it being Organic and Fair Trade, I just didn't want to take any of it off! I paired the Kowtow clothing with Mettle accessories and a DIY EKOLUV hand made transparent perspex bag also made from recycled materials and voila! I created this post to show how easily you can blend in vintage and ethical fashion pieces into your wardrobe whilst still keeping up with trends and being fashion forward. The transparent clutch or hand bag is on trend at the moment and is kicking up a storm in the fashion world, and what's even better is these bags are eco chic. I will be giving tips on how you can re-work your wardrobe too, declutter, keep onto the exceptional quality items, donate the rest to charity and maintain a healthy and sustainable wardrobe. If you like any of these vintage or fair trade items you can find them at www.ekoluv.com or via links below outfit descriptions.

A PARISIENNE SUMMER

Paris in the summer, what a beautiful time to be in the city of love and with my love! :) Paris was very memorable I can understand why people fall in love with this city, it has so much to offer from it's rich history, culture and i't's artistic flair. The monuments, the architecture of the buildings, the little cafes along the sidewalk, the old metro, the parks spread throughout, the boutiques,...

LONDON LOVE PART ONE

As the heat and the craziness of Ramadan finally took it's toll on us in Morrocco, we decided to leave 2 days earlier than planned to London and I'm glad we did. I must say I love London and I can certainly see the appeal living there even with the weather, it's worth it. There is always something to do, see and find in London. I especially had a great time Vintage shopping where I picked up this...

A PARK AND A SUNSET

As I say goodbye to Australia once more for the next month I thought I'd post on how lovely the simple things in life can be. It was a sunny day, so I decided to spend one afternoon at the park around sunset. Gorgeous auburn colours of deep orange and pink and that feeling of once the sun starts to set, another day is done. I took this opportunity to take some pics of the vintage pieces I will be...

SCARF ME BABY

I BELIEVE EVERY WOMAN SHOULD HAVE A BEAUTIFUL SCARF IN HER WARDROBE. SCARVES CAN BE A STATEMENT PIECE TO ANY OUTFIT. TAKE THIS KOOKAI SILK PATTERN SCARF FOR EXAMPLE. I ADDED THIS SCARF TO MY LOOK TO ACHIEVE MORE DRAMATICAL IMPACT. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT BY SIMPLY ADDING A SCARF YOU CAN CHANGE THE DEMENSION OF AN OUTFIT. WELL YOU CAN... AND HERE'S JUST AN EXAMPLE OF HOW YOU CAN TOO...
