Summer style is all about grabbing the nearest thing and throwing it on… right ? I just so happened to be lying next to my neon pink top and bellerinas as well as a perfectly matching skirt ! Luck ! ; )
En été, on met la première chose qui nous tombe sous la main, non ? Il s’avère que je dormais pile à côté de mon top et mes ballerines roses fluo ainsi qu’une jupe parfaitement assortie… Quel heureux hazard ! ; )

April 26th and I’m online queuing at H&M. The Fashion Against Aids collection came out this morning at 9am and WOW did it go fast. When I managed to actually get online I had to hurry – in fact the top I wanted most sold out whilst in my basket ! Unfair ! Anyway, this is what I managed to grab despite the virtual crowd, for a mere £20.00 and all for a good cause (well, my wardrobe thinks so anyway!).
On est le 26 avril et comme beaucoup je fais la queue en ligne pour le site d’H&M. C’est la sortie de leur collection Fashion Against Aids ce matin et les fringues sont parties à une vitesse incroyable – le top que je voulais par dessus tout a même disparu de mon panier en cours de shopping ! Injuste ! Voilà ce que j’ai réussi à m’approprier malgré la foule virtuelle. Le tout pour seulement £20.00 et surtout pour la bonne cause (selon mon armoire !).
The downside : Delivery isn’t until JUNE ! / Le point négatif : Pas de livraison avant JUIN !
Don’t forget to follow my shopping adventures on Facebook, loads of tips and great sites coming your way !

Today I am attending a conference at the University of the Arts, London, named From Awareness to Action. The talks will be on the subject of sustainable fashion and I’m looking forward to lots of learning and hopefully some networking. Responsable Fashion is a tricky subject, especially as we seem to be seeing things go in the opposite direction : Zara’s 14 collections a year definitely don’t encourage sustainability ! Practicing DIY and being creative with fashion is definitely a good start to becoming fashionably responsible and I hope this blog helps those of you who are interested in sustainable fashion to find alternatives to constant retail therapy whilst feeding your love for clothes ! Seeing how quickly H&M sold out of most of their new Conscious Collection, it seems people are more and more interested in shopping green. Good news : )
I know this isn’t the kind of thing I usually talk about on here but for those of you who are interested, this is a great video produced by EJF – one of the speakers taking part in today’s conference.
