Fashion Revolution: Follow Up

Better late than never! It’s taken around a month to get back to this but I’m finally here talking Fashion Revolution follow up. Sorry for the delay! It was a bit of an interrupted Fashion Revolution week for me heading to Tasmania for my sisters lovely wedding. I didn’t get a chance to get stuck into the follow up as much as I usually do. Anyways, the results are in and I’m please to announce that part of my...

Mindful Partnerships

Making lasting collaborations. Today is Ged and I’s anniversary so I thought what better time than now to write a post about mindful partnerships. Sustainability in Style isn’t a dating or romantic relationship advice site, so this post is all about mindful partnerships in stylish lives- not how to find love. However, I thought it might be nice to quickly say a huge thank you to Ged for being there for me. The photo above...

Mindful Media Consumption

 Being media savvy is a mindful must. In our day we are exposed to advertising from waking to sleep. Advertisements are on our phones, in our living rooms, and all over our streets. It’s hard to find a definitive statistic on the number of advertisements that we are exposed to (there are just so many channels and media consumption varies from consumer to consumer) but it’s estimated to be around 5000, to as high as 10,000...

Dressing Mindfully

The art of dressing mindfully. Getting dressed is something we do habitually. It’s not often that one thinks about every detail of their outfit unless there is a special occasion or event. Most of us (not all…but most) will have items we wear out of habit. These items are usually the ones we feel most comfortable with in a literal and/or emotional sense or the ones that made us smile from ear to ear. Every once and a while it’s good...

Mindful Shopping

Shopping on autopilot doesn’t make for meaningful purchases. Have you ever found yourself in the shopping centre car park- shopping in hand- only to wonder how the heck you got there? We are busy people and it’s pretty easy to shop on autopilot. We can find ourselves in situations where we can’t find our keys, can’t remember what happened on the weekend, or fail to remember that we bought new gym wear until it...

Fashion Revolution: Haulternative

Alternatives you can shop by. Part of the Fashion Revolution challenge is finding more mindful ways to shop. So this year I’m taking part by doing my first ever video- a haulternative! What’s a haulternative you say? Good question! It’s an alternative to the traditional haul-shopping- video that shows more ethical and mindful ways to work with what you have or introduce additional items to your closet. My video is focused on the...

Postive Exposure

Rethinking Beauty Yesterday I was lucky enough to find myself seated front and centre for one of the most inspiring presentations I’ve seen in a long time. The presenter- Rick Guidotti- worked as a high profile fashion photographer for fifteen years in New York, Milan, Paris, and London shooting campaigns for labels like Yves Saint Laurent and editorial images for all the best glossies. While he enjoyed the art of photography...

Fashion Revolution 2017: Sass & Bide

We will never forget. On this day in 2013 the Rana Plaza building collapsed killing 1,138 people and injuring more than 2500 others. Many of those involved in the incident were garment factory workers who were sent to work to meet the tight manufacturing deadlines enforced by fast-fashion turnaround times. There were reported structural faults in the building prior to the 24th. It’s safety had been discussed in the local media...

Must Watch: Ethical Fashion and Sustainable Living

It’s a little chilly here in Australia. As the weather cools and we start to get ready for the winter months ahead there is nothing better than a night in with good people and a movie, doco, or series. Given that today is Earth Day and our Fashion Revolution week celebrations will be kicking off on the 24th why not have a sustainability or fashion themed home-theatre night in this weekend? The following suggestions should help...

Fashion Revolution 2017: Sportsgirl

Communication is key for starting a Fashion Revolution! The clothing industry is not just frivolous fashion for silly fashionistas. It’s actually big business and the second largest polluter in the World following the oil industry. It’s also an industry where unethical manufacturing practices run rife without much intervention from legislating bodies. Which is why the folks at Fashion Revolution have asked us to ask the...
