RIXO want list

Rixo are big of patterns, colour and flowy dresses. At their first ever LFW event which took place a few years ago, they showcased the best of their vintage-style-with-a-modern twist dresses and hint to a launch of accessories. No sweatshops/nasty business at Rixo. London based, designed by women for women type of brand. 🙂 These…

Green Glittery Eyes

Green eye makeup, particularly in the form of metallics and glitter, were very prevalent on the catwalk this season. To me, it’s such a fun colour and brings me so much joy. I particularly liked the metallic green looks on the Versace models. I think that people often associate cruelty free makeup with ‘green’ brands….

Whistles want list

I loved creating the last wish list so thought I’d carry on the theme ! I might as well put my internet scrolling to some use Whistles are fully embracing the leopard print at the moment, with option in dresses, tops and skirts. There are also some beautiful velvet jumpsuits and shoes. These are some…

All Saints want list

All Saints seem to nail autumn and winter fashion – their coats and jackets look incredible. I can’t afford them, but I still like looking at the cuts and designs. Looks like they are fully embracing the snake skin trend. This is essential my own personal record of things I like! MARTY ROLL NECK JUMPER£108.00 …

Designer wear labels, with an ethical edge

It would make sense that because the clothes are so expensive, that therefore all of them must be conscious of their ethics in terms of labor and the…

H&M ‘Conscious’ Recycling Program

Earlier this week I caught sight of the H&M ‘Conscious Recycling’ bins. The concept being to drop off your old clothes, and in exchange receive a £5 voucher and that self fulfilling feeling of “saving the planet”. Upon further research I’m pretty disgusted by this hypocritical and tokenistic gesture by H&M. Calling H&M ‘conscious’ is…

Activewear Brands and Ethics

I’m going to be talking about how ethical many of the large activewear brands are. I think it’s important information to know, as most of us buy trainers. And it’s not good enough to turn around an say ‘ah well, everything is made by children these days, right?’. No. To find out your own information…

Olive Clothing – an overview

Olive is known for its minimal and quintessentially British designs. The clothes are elegant but understated, think classic knits and striped tees. They first came onto my radar through social media, the way they photograph clothes embodies the simplicity of the brand. I think the photography is extremely good – it shows off their range in…

Shhhowercap

Shower caps are generally a waste of time, your hair end ups frizzy and flat anyway and you resort to another wash. Basically, they are shite at what they’re meant to do. Also, they make you look more like a slightly ridiculous dinner lady…. or your grandmother. Shelling out £5 every month or two, once…
