Change and your environment

Change is the only constant When it comes to trying to make sense of our place here on this orbiting pile of rock it’s kind of hard to ignore the fact that control is only an illusion. Whether it takes a terrorist attack, race riots, or a momentary blocking of the sun in the middle of the day to jog your memory- we sometimes need our safety net shaken up to remind us life is precious. This post comes off the back of a series of events that reminded me that change and death are our true fates in...

DIY: The Custom Made Trend

Unique is the new black Monogramming, DIY design, and more- there is no denying that fashion is taking a turn for the unique! Whether this is our creative sides fighting back against the Normcore movement that’s plagued our stores for a few years now, or a decision to bring the personality back into our faceless, nameless, fast fashion items, personalisation is here to stay. I’ve decided to bring you a little DIY inspiration having finally got my lazy-ass around to customising some of the goodies I’ve had in my ‘must-work-on-this’ pile.

Sustainable Style Tribe

The Fashion Of Subcultures. I’ve managed to get myself a copy of Style Tribes: The Fashion of Subcultures by Caroline Young.

Nature & Health: Naturally Curious

Outdoor adventures mindfully and in style. I’m super lucky to be the Eco Style columnist for Australia’s Nature & Health magazine because it’s a fab publication and I really enjoy coming up with new approaches for sharing the best eco friendly brands. As many of you may know, I don’t advertise or do collabs here on Sustainability in Style. It’s not because I hate fashion or eco friendly labels (in fact it’s the opposite and it pains me to turn people down all the time), it’s because I will be using my blog for ongoing research and can’t have...
