    DAGNY London

    Sustainable Luxury My ‘collections’ and book mark tabs on my browser and instagram are becoming laden with brands and companies I want to shout about. I know I say this a lot, but it seriously blows my mind how many people are out there making beautiful, gorgeous and interesting but conscious clothing. So I have to start somewhere and today is DAGNY day. The first thing that really drew me in was the selected colour palette and the beautiful prints. There is definitely a vintage vibe happening but it’s also very fresh and modern, and also pretty classic. The kind of clothes you buy because you absolutely love and will…

    Ethical Alternatives : CÉLINE TRIO

    I’ve been looking for a nice cross body bag for a while now, something I can use on nights out (LOL on those are rare occasions) but also something I can use for work. With my job sometimes I spend days on end out shopping with a suitcase or shopper in tow so a cross body is ideal for me to access my purse, ipad and tape measure. The famous Céline Trio was recently bought back on to my radar and I realised that it would be the perfect solution. The three (Same size) pockets would be SO useful for staying organised during work trips, and I believe that one…

    Weekend Thoughts : is there a solution?

    So I read a lot about all these great brands and designers making and selling ethical and sustainable products and that is great, but on the wider scale of things what is the solution to fast fashion and the high street? Obviously it’s a very complicated subject, and I really don’t know much about economics and I don’t want to pretend I do, but is there a solution out there to make things better or is it just a case of little by little? I find it difficult to articulate myself sometimes so I am just going write down my thoughts in bullet points, and hope that does the job.…

    Pants! Round up of boxers and briefs.

    A few weeks a go I wrote a post rounding up some excellent ladies underwear and lingerie (you can read it here). I also included some tips on looking after your underwear to increase the longevity of it thus making it even more sustainable. Although on my blog so far there has been a tilt towards womenswear, it wasn’t my intention to make it exclusively this. To be fair a lot of the brands I have featured do cater for all tastes, but I think I will also start to include some mens wear specific posts as well. Of course there are no rules anyway of who can wear what…

    Let’s talk Lingerie

    Bras are a pain really aren’t they. Let’s be honest, they are uncomfortable, at least they definitely are after 7 or 8 hours of wearing, It’s also one more thing (most) women have to wear on a daily basis that men don’t – are bras taxed like tampons? Is that OK? And finally on top of all that they usually cost a small fortune. Places like Primark are an affordable option if you are on a low income, but they aren’t great quality, and the fit of them is never the same, so like most things I like to say you should always try to buy the best you can…
