sustainable style : book launch

Last night I attended a book launch at the University of Sydney for Climate Challenged Society. Just some light summer reading!

What does one wear to an academic book launch, you may be asking yourself? Well, here was my sustainable look for the event:

  • Polka dot top: Feral Childe
    A favourite label of mine which uses natural and sustainable materials, vintage buttons, low-impact dyes, and manufactures in the USA.
  • Skinny black crop pants: Zoologie
    This Melbourne-based ethical fashion label is focused on creating quality classic pieces to stand the test of time (and trends!). These pants are only about 2 years old now, but I reckon they'll stay in my wardrobe for years to come.
  • Aztec handbag: Secondhand markets
    There is nothing as eco-friendly as buying used - and when you can score a bag like this for $10, why bother otherwise?
  • Clogs: Funkis
    So in love with these clogs, made from sustainable plantation timber and leather treated with vegetable dyes.

I got some fantastic academic news this week myself, actually.  I've been invited to pursue a PhD at the University of Sydney! I'll be investigating sustainable fashion, which means I'll be bringing you more delicious eco-fashion information for years to come!
