So yesterday I bought this month’s Mare Claire (UK edition). I sort of wish I hadn’t. It’s the “green issue” encouraging all of us to be green-concius when buying fasion. It recommends Stella McCartney, John Smedley and some other very exclusive (ie. expensive) brands some of which are entirely organic/green/sweatshop-free, some only have green sub-lines. As for people who cannot AFFORD the high end the only recommendation was buy in Charity Shops, and customise. Great. I’m into fashion, and do a lot of creative work apart from my hatlings too, but surely we cannot expect people to ALL go down that route? I felt that Etsy with it’s hand made ethics would have been such a fittingly good example and also affordable for all of us. Surely we cannot hope for the word to go green if being green is the privilage of the wealthy? Anyway, sorry for ranting 😉 Here is an amazing example of the greenest of Etsy sellers, Vintage Vacations  is based on the Isle of Wight and makes the most amazing, funky clothes of vintage fabrics, even upcycling vintage table linen. I just adore her style, and the caravans too 😉 Duster Coat
