On a tight travel budget thrift shopping was genuinely all I could afford, so I challenged myself to find ways to look super expensive for minimal spend.
I began to create an unintentional eco chic.
The more I would put these designer inspired looks together the more people would ask me things like, ‘where is that from’ ….’Is that Gucci’…(yep seriously had that one a few times!) it became clear that I wasn’t only giving myself a leg up, this could really help others too.
After a push from my sweet best friend, I started this website you now find yourself on, once back in Sydney I pitched and networked the concept like crazy to the media and 7 years later I seriously have the best job in the world, one that didn’t even really exist, I created it.
I am an eco stylist, which basically means I am stylist with a mindful and sustainable approach.
I work with clothing which is kind to our earth – thrift/charity/op shop, vintage, DIY, upcycled, recycled, slow, ethical, the list goes on. It’s fashion which considers its footprint on people and the planet and that never goes out of style.
As the Australian ambassador for Salvos Stores a huge part of my work revolves around second hand clothing…it’s my gig to make this retail sector gorgeous and show people just how stylish it can be.
