ethical threads

As some of you may have noticed Autumn is creeping upon us, and you may have seen my pinterest board slowly becoming inundated with comfy jumpers, cardigans and layers! I can't wait!

So whilst I was browsing the internet making up many many fantasy shopping baskets full of my Autumn wish list, I thought I would check out some ethical fashion sites too. I have always been aware of eco fashion, and this doesn't mean frumpy hippy rainbow cardigans! My sister has always pointed me in the direction of ethical brands, and has given me eco fashion advice, such as vegan leather boots and pretty dresses from People Tree.

This website provides links to eco friendly fashion and keeps you up to date with eco fashion news, and I have to say I've been slightly obsessed since finding it! If money were no object I would dress myself and Theo in solely ethical clothing from now on, but alas it isn't. Some is fairly expensive and not something I can afford to spend money on, but hey it's nice to dream right? But saying that as I've become older I have started to embrace the logic of 'investment'. Investing in simple, classic, timeless pieces of clothing, that are built to last rather than spending constantly in shops like Primark, where the clothes don't fit well and fall apart after two wears (can't remember the last time I shopped there!) But for now, until I can really afford to make these investments, I still end up buying most my clothes from charity shops and h&m (even though h&m do have an organic range)

But here are a few things that I have my eye on!

1- Arlington Satchel from Lost Property of London
2- Trisha Wedding Dress (!) from Minna
3- One Pocket Sweather from Chinti and Parker
4- Breton Dress from Chinti and Parker
5- Necklace from Ada Zanditon
6- Oversize T from Chinti and Parker
7- Arran sweater from Chinti and Parker
8- Enid Camel Blouse from People Tree

All of these companies are ethical or eco in one way or another, either using recycled materials, or just using high quality sustainable materials etc...These sites are well worth a visit, to find out more about the company, or even just to make a few fantasy shopping lists!
