Dress – Monsoon
Scarf – Vintage/ second hand
Boots – a few years old
Silver bangles – gifts
For May the outfit challenge on Ethical Fashion Bloggers was to create an outfit that focussed on prints. Of course for me this wasn’t a difficult task at all as my wardrobe is rammed full with colourful printed clothes. I though that now would be the perfect opportunity to show off my new Monsoon Dress, bought a few weeks ago with my birthday money and worn for a night out in Bath on the May Bank holiday weekend, I have been saving the outfit picture ip up especially for this challenge.
The Scarf was from The Black and White shop, a fantastic vintage and second hand treasure trove which I visited when I was researching my recent Vintage and Second Hand Guide to Bath. Not sure if the two prints clash or compliment, either way I love how they look together and the pom poms on the scarf are the perfect finishing touch. Although some may consider this look a little full on, I love it and know I will be wearing it many times this summer.
If you need a new dress for a special occasion, Monsoon have some lovely choices with beautiful prints at great prices. They also have an offer of up to 25% off occasion wear and a fantastic sale on.
With warmest wishes
There is a fantastic sale on at Monsoon until 26th March with lots of amazing Monsoon clothing reduced by up to 50%. You might just think of Monsoon as a regular high street shop but actually Monsoon is one of the most ethical retailers on the high street with a strong commitment to ethical and sustainable fashion, not only in its sponsorship of Estethica, the part of London Fashion Week dedicated to ethical fashion but also with its promotion of longlife fashion, support of craft communties, working towards greater use of sustainable fabrics, the clothes for life scheme and the Monsoon Accessorize Trust which helps to improve the lives of disadvantaged women and children in Asia.
I have always loved Monsoon, even before I realised all of this. For me it is about the quality clothes that look modern and stylish but don’t go out of fashion. The bright colours, the beautiful prints and the close attention to detail, something that seems to fairly rare on the high street these days.
Anyway, If you needed something new and haven’t ever bought from Monsoon before, this sale is a great opportunity to give them a go and see how lovely the clothes are. Here are just a few pieces that caught my eye.
Cross Stitch Dress
Lady Blue Jumpsuit
Leandra Maxi Skirt - reduced to £35
Fusion Odette Top
