    Wardrobe Wisdom, Bristol Fashion

    01/31/2018 - 13:06

    My husband took this snap when I realised I was kitted out almost entirely in Bristol conscious fashion finds. It seemed a fitting photo to use for this blog about my research into all the wonderful wardrobe-related shops and services in the city.

    The coat is Karen Millen but I bagged... More

    Fashion Revolution Fanzine: Loved Clothes Last

    12/22/2017 - 15:36

    I can't quite believe it but The Good Wardrobe turned five years old at the end of last month (where has the time gone?!). 'Love your clothes for longer’ has been one of our slogans from the start and long before I launched the website I’ve been celebrating and advocating for ways to make... More

    Menswear Made With Care: Ten Brands Making Good Men's Shirts

    If you are reading this you may already know that it’s not easy to find stylish, affordable and ethically produced men’s shirts from brands who value transparency. Until recently there was a gaping hole in the market. You can find organic cotton or silk shirts on the high street but if... More

    Make or Mend of The Month: My Toddler Shoe Fix

    10/26/2017 - 14:47

    One of the biggest challenges I have with my son’s wardrobe is footwear. 99% of his clothes are second-hand but as it’s not generally recommended for children to wear hand-me-down shoes (unless they have virtually no wear), I usually buy him new shoes. That said, good quality ethically-... More

    My Work, Rest & Play Style Dilemma

    09/19/2017 - 00:00

    Apparently it is not the done thing to do the school run in your pyjamas, or so my mother-in-law tells me. But my son’s nursery is so close that, if we’ve all had a bad night’s sleep, it’s sometimes really tempting to keep my pjs on for drop off. I haven't resorted to this yet, in part... More

    Make or Mend of the Month: Mending for the Mind (and a Digital Detox)

    08/15/2017 - 10:13

    It’s been a bit quiet on here for the last few months. I decided to crowdfund in June to expand The Good Wardrobe to Bristol (where I moved last year) and, as I only work part-time when my son is in childcare, for a couple of months it was all-consuming. Planning and running the campaign was... More
