I received this dress for my birthday last October and, although I have been wearing it with tights during the winter, I have been looking forward to busting it out in the spring to wear sans tights. It’s one of those I Could Be Dressy dresses but I took it for a spin during a daytime ponder around West London last weekend with my most favourite blue boots (if they’re good enough for Kendall…) and glittery socks.
With this dress being worn throughout the winter and the boots being a fair few years old now they are definitely tallying at 30+ wears each. I have mentioned the 30+ wear rule a fair few times on this blog. Lucy Siegle established the 30+ wear rule in order to prompt us to question whether we would wear an item over 30 times. If not, chances are you don’t love the item and it’s not worth buying. Other tips for shopping smarter can be found on The True Cost website. Last week I picked up People Tree’s Safia Minney’s book called Slow Fashion. Following Fashion Revolution week I got to thinking how I could do more. My first stop on this mission to find out how I can do my tiny bit to help the fashion industry become safer and transparent is to understand what Slow Fashion. I’ll update you with my progress as I go!
