Well it has been another wet day in London, but seeing as we sussed the raincoat dilemma yesterday, I had a lovely walk around the city for St George’s day. Still needing a map you may notice – this place is HUGE !
Encore une journée de pluie, mais comme nous avons résolu le dilemme de l’anorak hier, j’ai quand même passé une super journée à me balader dans Londres au nom de Saint Georges ! Comme vous pouvez le voir, j’ai encore besoin d’un plan (vive le Guide du Routard !) – cette ville est IMMENSE !
– Trench by H&M (2011)
– Sweater / Pull by Kookaï (it’s even nicer without a trench covering it up !)
– Snuggly alpaca hat / Bonnet en alpaga bought in Peru
– Neutral tote / Cabas The Clever Baggers (ready to be DIYed !)
– Glasses (prescription) / Lunettes de vue by Ralph Lauren
– Earrings / Boucles d’oreilles by Louche @ Joy
– Lipstick / Rouge à Lèvres #140 KISS ME by Rimmel
– Neon Nailpolish / Vernis à ongles fluo by American Apparel
And this is the song I’ve been singing to myself all day ! / Et voilà ce que j’ai chantonnée toute la journée !
“I’m just a little bit caught in the middle…”

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.
The true cost of cotton

What do Mister Potato Head, Bow Peep and Buzz Lightyear all have in common ? They all have ANDY written on the bottom of their foot ! And just take a look at what I found in a lost vintage store in Camden…
His denim jacket !
I feel like part of the family : )
