Outfit 31.12.09: Black and primary colours

31.12.09: black and primary colours

Ginger and bangles

handknit felted brooch

From New Year’s Eve. I had to go and pick up a parcel from the post office depot and we were climbing a hill to watch the fireworks at midnight, so the outfit needed to be both cycle- and icy-hill-friendly.

top and dress – people tree
jeans – only
boots – clarks
belt and small bangle – charity shops
brooch – I made it
big bangle – beacon’s closet

    This might be my favorite outfit of yours to date! Love the brights against the black, and that fantastically flattering silhouette.

    You have a great blog here. I like reading personal blogs, luckily I found yours today. I have a blog myself which brings inspiration and guidance to people all around the world. Life is hard enough, and I hope that my site can provide even the slightest bit of happiness and guidance to anyone's day.

    I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible. Until then, keep up the good work.

    This is a gorgeous outfit and the People Tree top and dress look lovely. I had never heard of People Tree until I started reading your blog. Have you ever done a post on ethical shopping? Sorry if you have and I just haven't seen it. It's something I've been thinking about more and more recently and I'm planning to write a post on it sometime but I need to get organised and spend some time researching properly. I'd love to hear your views on the subject.

    parakeetpie – yeah, people tree aren't well known at all, but i love them! they should be sponsoring this blog the amount of exposure I give them!

    I'm actually reading a book on sustainable fashion just now, and will do a blog about it soon I think. I've touched on ethics in a few posts already, but maybe not so much ethical shopping. thanks for the suggestion!
