Sorry to have been a bit absent over the past month - I've been a very busy Sadie, with a year abroad placement to secure (Hello, Paris!!), Oxfam blogger meetings to attend, fairtrade fashion shows to organise, societies to run and coursework to do... However, I had some daylight hours spare today and thought I'd take the chance to showcase my new People Tree blouse.
I bought it a) Because it's ethical, b) Because it's beautiful! and c) Because I'm going to need lots of office wear for my placement in Paris later this year. It's super chic, very comfy, and very easy to style, which makes it a winner in my books! It was also half price in the sale, bringing it down from £75 to £37.50, which is very cheap considering it contains silk and is handwoven, and the workers are paid fairly!
I'm now taking time to consider my wardrobe's ethical credentials, and aside from a small slip on a bag earlier this month, I think I'm doing fairly well. Of course, it helps that I don't have much money to spend anyway! I'm hoping this blouse will be a good investment, and take me through my 20s without losing its quality & stylishness.
I promise I ironed these!
Wardrobe-wise, I'm pretty pre-occupied with trying to find clothes suitable for the office but without losing my personal style too much (every worker's nightmare!). I refuse to become a corporate clone! Has anyone got any tips on what to wear at work?
