An ode to my mother...

... so recently I have had my head buried in my uni work mainly my dissertation, however I did pause for one second to enter into the Well Dressed category in the Observer's Ethical Awards 2013.  The challenge was to create one outfit made up entirely of ethical or sustainable clothing.  

 The dress, belt, the gold cuff and bracelet are all handed down from my mother, who has some fantastic pieces that I am lucky enough to own or cheekily borrow.  The fur gilet and shoes are from the holy grail of eBay, which I often browse for second hand branded pieces.  And finally my ring on the left, was a gift from my boyfriend that I wear everyday and the ones on the right are recycled brass from gorgeous vintage jewellery brand Eclectic Eccentricity.  Both the caelia vintage fire opal ring and the thorn vintage brass chevron ring can be found here!

So do you fancy the challenge? If you are interested in entering yourself into the Observer's Ethical Awards 2013 Well Dressed category just follow the link below:
