November is the 4th Anniversary of Style Eyes Fashion Blog, Since launching in 2007, it has changed domains and morphed into Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog, but still 4 years is a great reason to celebrate, no?
So to celebrate, I have been working hard over the last few weeks to put together a competition with some great prizes that will get everyone thinking about Ethical Fashion. The competition is open to anyone based in the UK with a fashion blog and twitter account. All you have to do is create an outfit which contains at least ethical piece, that could be something from your favourite ethical fashion brand, vintage or charity shop. It could also be something that you have upcycled yourself.
