Vest top – M&S
Organic cotton jeans – M&S
Bag – Oxfam
Jewellery – Made UK
I was recently contacted to see if I would like to review a product from one of the ethical brands on the Zalando online shop. I was instantly charmed by this top by this top by Kuyichi with beautifully delicate wings printed on the back.
The top is made from Tencel, sustainable fabric that is made from recycled paper. It is quite a thin fabric and lends itself perfectly to this draped kind of top. It is also soft and incredibly comfortable to wear. I really love the style of the top as it is loose fitting and long enough to be a dress, so quite flattering for someone of my height. As it is very slightly see through and cut away at the back, I decided it would look best worn over a close fitting vest top and a fairly extensive rummage through my wardrobe resulted in me finding a peach coloured top which was the perfect match.
The draped neckline was the perfect place to show off my new necklace from Made UK (which you can read more about in my post on Ethical Jewellery) and the colours worked so well with my new (old) bag from the Oxfam Boutique, (which you can read more about in my post about The Good Fashion Show)
Despite the weather being unusually warm, I think this outfit is probably more suited to proper spring (rather than the freaky not supposed to be) early spring that we are experiencing at the moment. I am afraid I chickened out of wearing peep toe shoes and changed into my boots before taking the children to school. I also added a short jacket. I wonder if anyone noticed there was a pair of wings poking out under the botton of it?
Kuyichi are one of the pioneers of sustainable fashion, being the first brand to introduce organic jeans. They continue to be at the forefront of innovation in sustainable textiles with their collections being dominated by organic and recycled fabrics. Their clothes have a relaxed but contemporary vibe. Their website describes them as style with a soul and explains how they care about the product, the people and the planet and how their fabrics are grown and sewn with love and crafted with a conscience.
If you are love on trend ethical fashion, you should check out Zalando, not only do they have some great ethical brands including Kuyichi and Hemp Hoodlamb, but they also stock ethical shoes including Toms, Green Comfort and Grand step shoes and beauty brands like Burts Bees and Cowshed.
I hope you are having a lovely week.
With warmest wishes
