Well what a whirlwind few weeks its been in the zero waste world!
To celebrate Plastic Free July Salvos Stores and I headed up and down the coast with the lovely Anita Van Dyke to host a series of workshops. We showed the sustainable community in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney how to go from excess to eco luxe with ease and it was absolutely wonderful. I of course spoke about zero waste fashion and along the way gave myself some really fun challenges to walk the talk. We dressed ourselves from each location, I shopped the $2 rack and our warehouses to put together my signature preloved pretty.

Here’s a few take homes as well
- Throw the size book out the window and just try things! I see an op shop as a license to play and be creative, the only limit is your imagination
- Use designer references…whenever I’m eco styling there is usually a high end label or look I love in mind…its a great guideline to getting nifty thrifty
- Try interesting print clashes, special details like gold buttons and choose superior tailoring to take your second hand outfits from simple to sizzling in an instant
