blue concrete

I’m not sure why this outfit works for me, it’s a little mismatched really and was pretty haphazardly put together this morning, but generally I find that’s the best way. If I think about it too much I end up getting changed about 6 times before getting annoyed with myself and going back to my original choice.

I’m wearing this little badge to do my bit on the Australian promotional trail for Round London, which is the creative baby of my very talented friend Cecilia - ‘Round London aims to create change in the wasteful fashion industry by being part of a movement of forward thinking designers, consumers, movers, shakers and decision makers that realise the importance of recycling.’

The majority of her designs are one-offs, including custom-made pieces, all using recycled garments and textiles. So, because we all know how hard it can be to keep a labour of love going and growing, visit her on Facebook and have a little look at her designs (personally I’m loving the no. 2 preview).

  2. It's hard finding a good denim jacket I think. They're always in the op shops but never quite right.

  5. No, haha. This is down the backstreet behind my house in Sydney. Classic example of fine 80s architecture, I imagine it features in many carparks/fences/walls around Australia!
