Ethically Red, Ethically Black

Friday, November 25, 2011

Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog celebrates 4 years of blogging this November, by challenging other bloggers to an ethical outfit competition.

Entrants into the competition need to create an outfit which contains at least one ethical piece (upcycled, second hand, vintage or charity shopped, etc)

Here, is my entry, which is put together from an array of different ethical fashion genre's

Ethically Red, Ethically Black

Top to bottom

Headband: Broken, fixed and refashioned with zipper flowers, made using zippers from the op shop, and a glue gun.

Necklace: purchased from AfriBeads, ethically produced in Uganda, made from recycled magazines.

Dress: made myself using a vintage 60's pattern, buttons, and fabric all purchased from the op shop.

Boots: swapped at The Clothing Exchange and fixed up with boot polish

Cat: Rescued from the Animal Protection Society ;-)

The cat is the best bit! (that is not a comment on your sewing skills, I just like animals). Great dress and I your haircut looks awesome!

That's a really cool dress - I love the button details. And of course, the rescued kitty! We have two all-black rescues right now, and love them to bits.

Oh lordy!! I love your dress so much - what a fine score - patterns, fabric AND buttons all op-shopped!! Oooooh you're giving me more headband ideas and I remember making those paper beads in primary school - I'm gonna go for it again!! xoxoxox

good job with the dress! Nice! I like the DIY hairband and exotic necklace. You look really fabulous, love the boots. And the cat is cute...she must be so thankful to have found you.
