I realise this statement is, at its core, fundamentally boring. That being said, it’s a phrase which I’ve been thinking a lot about over the past few weeks – perhaps because it really hits the nail on the head.
The title of this blog post might as well be three thoroughly unconnected issues – however, I can assure you they are not. This week has been a crazy one, even by recent standards; some pretty weird lows, but some absolutely incredible highs.
Up until fairly recently, I was dubious of eBay. I found that it was a great place to sell my unwanted clothes (I usually donate old clothes to the charity shop, but old student habits die hard and if the item was branded or still had tags on, I would always turn to eBay for some extra cash) but after watching plenty of friends get poor quality items off eBay, I didn’t think the buying side of the site was right for me.
Hello and welcome to the third installment of the ethical fashion profile series! It’s an absolute joy to put these kinds of posts together and to interact with some incredible bloggers from across the world – so, without further ado, I’d like to introduce you to Anna of Made Right (Here)!
Hello and welcome back to my Ethical Fashion Profile Series! Today, I’m super excited to have Ellie and Beth from Dress Well, Do Good getting involved and answering a few questions. Dress Well, Do Good is one of my favourite ethical fashion blogs – I absolutely love that it’s written by a pair of friends, and as you’ll be able to see from the responses below, the commitment, compassion and creativity which goes in to the blog is awesome. So without further ado, lets get going!
Hello again! It’s been a little bit quiet over here on the blog for the past few weeks – as I’ve mentioned before, being a final year student, holding down a job, some vague semblance of a social life AND a blog doesn’t always come that easy. Sometimes this little corner of the internet has to take a hit to allow for me to get down to some serious essay writing! I doubt that this will be the last lull in posting I have this year, but if everything goes swimmingly then I should be fully graduated and available to blog regularly again sometime in mid July. Till then, I hope you’ll stick with with me through my sporadic posting schedule!
Today, I’m super excited to share with you the first installment of a new feature – Tomorrow Living’s Ethical Fashion Profiles! I want to showcase some of my favourite ethical fashion bloggers, instagrammers and fashionistas from all walks of life to demonstrate the sheer variety that is out there. Conscious, green fashion is as diverse as the people that choose to wear it – so if you need some inspiration, then keep scrolling.
I’ve spent a fair amount of time reading and talking about second hand, charity and vintage fashion recently – any way of extending the lifespan of an item of clothing has been of interest to me. In my opinion, this has got to be the best way to purchase clothes consciously, for it doesn’t bring unnecessary new goods into the world. After all, being ethical with your fashion and general life choices is as much about choosing to consume less as it is about choosing to buy well made, sustainable products.
Most of my last few posts have been about my resolutions and goals for this year. I noticed that one of the things that keeps me from achieving my goals is my lack of a method for keeping track of how things are going – blogging about them is just fine, but day to day, what keeps me accountable? How do I manage my goals? I love ethical fashion and I’m super excited by the direction this industry is going in, but I struggle to make any real commitment to it. I’m a keen reader of second hand/vintage/thrifted clothes blogs, an experienced charity shopper myself and lover of all things crafted and handmade. So why do I fail to buy clothes more consciously, every single time?
It’s been a little while since I did a sustainable fashion post – which is sad, really, as I absolutely love reading fashion blogs. At the moment, I’m pretty enamored by Paloma in Disguise – charity-shop pieces styled to perfection with some great photography to boot. Anyway, to change subject entirely, another thing I’m enamored with at the moment (besides Hannah’s wonderful blog) is the humble t-shirt. It’s one thing ethical fashion companies of all styles seem to do particularly well, and in recent weeks I’ve been picking up on some rather brilliant and beautiful designs from all corners of the internet.
I absolutely loved doing my last post on instagram accounts which embrace ethical, sustainable, eco friendly living, so I thought I’d write a second edition! Turns out, I’m incredibly good at starting series and not continuing them, so here’s to actually keeping something going for once. This time around, I’m going to focus on the brands that I’ve been loving over the past couple of months.
