    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

    11/15/2017 - 13:17

    To mark the launch of Fashion Revolution’s second bi-annual fanzine ‘Loved Clothes Last’ which is all about how to love your clothes for longer, I want to share a little customising I carried out on an old sweatshirt.

    Make or Mend of The Month: My Toddler Shoe Fix

    10/26/2017 - 13:47

    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

    09/18/2017 - 23:00

    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 - 09:13

    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

    Make or Mend of the Month: Darn that Cardy!

    01/31/2017 - 00:00

    If there’s one thing that’s more exciting to me than uncovering a hidden gem in a charity shop its finding something beautiful that needs to be mended. I know, it’s probably a bit bizarre but picking a garment off a rail and seeing ‘sold as seen’ scribbled on the tag gets my heart... More

    Thoughtful Giving

    12/08/2016 - 14:17

    I love lists. I have always loved lists especially when they are lists of things I plan to buy for people. I’ve discovered note books from when I was 5 or 6 that are full of lists, many of them Christmas related. Not lists of things I want for myself, but of things I want to buy for others. I... More

    Since moving to Bristol earlier this year I’ve been on the lookout for the best of the city’s ethical fashion offering. On hearing that Cornwall based cool water surf brand Finisterre was opening their fourth store here, I could barely contain by glee... More
