Ethical Fashion Bloggers Outfit Challenge; Brights

Wednesday, October 3, 2012

I'm stepping up the pace to participate in the Ethical Fashion Bloggers Community weekly outfit challenge.

Members of the Ethical Fashion Bloggers Community, are given fashion outfit challenges throughout the month, which are themed, but must reflect a sustainable nature, i.e. upcycled, second-hand, hand-made, made from organic fabric, or ethically produced.  This week's topic is 'Eyepopping Brights'.
Slotting in with the relevant neon theme, I'm wearing a simple dress, which I put together a few years ago from a $2 thrifted Billabong T-shirt, machine stitched onto a 50c bright pink skirt from the reduced rack in an op shop.

I am not usually a fan of surf brands, but that neon-tastic palm tree drew me to this particular Billabong tee. I wear my t-dress with my apple rainbow elastic 1970's belt, purchased from the local op shop, 50c


And now the weather has warmed, my favourite summer sandals are out, and on..


My favourite sandals are ethically produced in Thailand by Siamese Dream Design, made from re-purposed Hmong textiles.

Love this warm weather look - I had that apple belt in the 70's!

Super cute! And that 70s belt is something else - love! (I had striped suspenders but they had smurfs on them so they weren't so cool!).

I love your bright outfit! That tee & skirt made a perfect dress, and I have always wanted one of those belts! They were a big thing back when I was in high school & I could never find one!
