Top – Upstate
Jeans – Oxfam
Shoes – Clarks
I bought this top from a brand called Upstate at Gather& Sea while back.If you haven’t checked out Gather&See yet, I would definitely recommend it . They stock a number of fresh and interesting sustainable fashion labels from around the world. All of which don’t compromise on either ethics or aesthetics. Upstate is a New York label that creates one of a kind pieces using dye techniques based on Japanese shibori.Each piece is dyed in house and sewn by a skilled husband and wife team in Manhattan. Upstate only make limited productions to minimize waste and run a quilting program to put our fabric scraps to good use.
Any way,I haven’t been posting as much as I would like to lately as I have been super busy getting ready for Christmas in hope of a chance to relax a little in the run up and spend time with my family. This year I have been trying to keep it simple in terms of pressies and food but it still seems likeI have been getting ready for ever.Not that I mind, I love Christmas!
How are your Christmas preparations going? do you like to be ready early or do you prefer more of a last minute present dash?
