Fashion Revolution Day (and a video)May 14, 2015
Last year I also blogged about Fashion Revolution Day, so I wanted to make it a little different this time. A few days before the 22nd I saw a new 'trend' circulating (I say 'trend' because only a handful of people were taking part). This trend was video haulternatives (alternative hauls) and I decided to jump the bandwagon and make my own video. If a picture tells a thousand words then this video aught to speak for itself. If you've ever wanted to know what I'm like in real life (why did you want to know this?), this should give you a good idea. I knew I was goofy but I didn't realise until I watched the footage back, I couldn't help but laugh at myself, but I think that's a good thing. You can also watch the whole thing here on YouTube, and get info on the brands behind all the clothes I mentioned.
It's hard to get across how much the whole day means to me, but I think it's really important that everyone takes more notice of where their clothes come from and how it affects people and planet. I feel like it should be second nature so I try not to be too evangelical about it.
