I am now exactly one week into the Six Items Challenge which I am taking part in for the whole of July with Labour Behind the Label to try and raise awareness of the plight of real people working in the fashion industry and their struggle for better rights and working conditions. You can check out how the others participating in the challenge are getting on in the Six Items Challenge Blog.
This week hasn’t been too bad with the main challenges being the weather. Feeling cold in my choice of summery clothes and struggling to get clothes washed and dried ready to wear again, resulting in me resorting to drying a pair of leggings with the hair dryer, were probably the low points. On the plus side I managed to get ready pretty quickly each morning as I didn’t have much to choose from.
Her are my outfits for the week featuring the six items – a really old black shift dress and t shirt, a dress by Komodo, leggings from People Tree, Green Printed Dress from Monsoon and patterned trousers by ASOS Africa.
The necklace and bracelets were presents and the shoes are from sustainable shoe brand Melissa.
The scarf is from a vintage fair, the handbag from a charity shop and the necklace a present from my mum.
This necklace was also a present from my mum.
The belt was from the high street and the necklace from ethical jewellery brand Made UK.
The scarf is vintage and the shoes and tights from the high street.
The scarf is from a vintage fair and the necklace also from ethical jewelery brand Made UK.
Now I have worn all of the basic outfit combinations once comes the challenge. I am going to need to get creative and imaginative with accessories this week in order to make some different outfits.
I hope that you have had a good weekend!
With warmest wishes
