Tomorrow Black Friday is upon us - arguably one of the biggest days in retail across America (and slowly spreading its influence across the rest of world too). It’s estimated that this year, American shoppers alone will spend USD$682.0 billion on the day.⠀
It’s so easy, and so human, to feel some major FOMO when you’re surrounded by messages claiming that you need to take advantage of these amazing deals on items that will make your life better. Give yourself the gift of taking a moment to shift from unconscious to conscious consumer. Before you reach for your wallet, ask yourself these three questions: How much will I wear it? How much do I already own? How long will it last?⠀

So apparantly H&M burns clothes. Like.. a lot. Accordig to DN the clothing company burn as much as 400 tonnes of unusued clothing every year. That equals 50.000 pairs of jeans (one pair takes 20.000 litres of water to make). How H&M can burn clothes, not secure their workers rights, not secure their workers safety and STILL be allowed to have a «conscious collection» just makes me SO confused. There’s nothing conscious about over producing, and wasting energy and resources. #fashrev#whomademyclothes @fashrevnorway @fash_rev
Soooo excited! Last month the editor of @peppermintmagazine emailed me to let me know they were featuring Good & Clean in their next issue! And here it is!! 🌿
It’s my absolute favourite magazine - I’ve had the cover with Daniel and Justine Flynn from Thankyou Group on my wall since before I even launched! 😂
100% Merino long wool cardigan perfect for the chilly days that are rolling in. Knitted and hand finished at Komodo solar powered factory in Nepal. This fitted, cropped cardigan has a texture knit detail on the side seams and shoulders and corozo (100% natural and biodegradable) button front.
HUGE Thank you to @urbanlistmelb for their awesome post on You&Mei. 🌹
Looking for a little ethical fashion? Check out local label @youmeilabel. They're launching a new collection next month in Melbourne, and all profits go back to supporting young women living in Myanmar. Slow fashion at its very best. Threads look 👌 too #urbanlisted
Day 1 of @ecofashionweekaustralia. Wearing the Kutoka dress from South African ethical fashion label @lalesso, my trusty @trenery cotton shirt which has surpassed #30wears and my favourite handmade straw bag from @hartwood_house, recyled sunglasses from @carlacolour and necklace from the beautiful @ycljewels. We made the trip out to wine country in the Swan Valley @taylorscafe to meet some the designers who will be showing this week. Apologies for the shit live stories last night, my camera lens had a smudge on it!! 🙈 We've got the gala night tonight, Insta Live starting around 6:30pm Perth time 💚 📷 @davesimpson__ (Lalesso dress gifted)

BTW, my top @_stellaandamelia_ is made 100% by Ecuadorian artisan women...but on another note, my pants @ralphlauren #whomademyclothes ? @fash_rev @theupcycleproject
@adbusters.magazine - We have always loved #adbusters - the original anti-consumerism media. The latest edition introduces the black spot as a replacement for logos. The @abillionpeoplecollective movement suggests that this black spot should be the signal of anti-logos, which is a symbol of people power and anti consumerism. #nologo#naomiklein

"Minimalism is the thing that gets us past the things - so we can make room for life's most important things. Which actually, aren't 'things' at all." Joshua Feilds Milburn from @theminimalists⠀

Being kind to our Earth is just as important as being kind to our People 🌏 Meeting this wonderful woman who makes the most recycled Batik and creates masterpieces in the shapes of skirts, totes, cushions, table runners (and much much more) was another highlight of my recent trip abroad. Reusing this incredible fabric, with its intricate patterns and stunning colours and using skilled hands to create something even more unique than the original, is without a doubt, a recipe for success.
Our full range is available in store and will soon be online 🌸
