Is this thing on?

So I’ve decided to dabble in the world of blogging. How long I’ll keep it up for is debatable, seeing as a) I have the attention span of a narcoleptic goldfish and b) I hate people reading my stuff, so all in all it’s not looking promising. But it’s either that or continue writing for a grammatically-questionable student newspaper, used more commonly as a device for impromptu beer funnelling than as actual reading material. I choose dignity.

A bit about me – my name’s Alicea, and I’m a 22 year old Politics student with a verging-on-inappropriate love for dresses, brogues and Christmas jumpers. However, being a typical politics student means that I also have very unrealistic ambitions to save the world. Hence my dilemma. So many of the clothes we buy today have been produced in sweatshops, and are made from synthetic materials which are often non-biodegradable, use up tons of energy to produce, and contain some nasty chemicals.

But caring about the planet and the people in it doesn’t mean having to sumbit yourself to tie-dye and jesus sandals. There are plenty of ways to maintain a love for fashion and still be environment and people-friendly. Whether that’s through wearing second-hand or vintage, customising old clothes, or even making your own, spreading the love for sustainable fashion is girlvstheworld’s MO.

  1. It’s hard finding ethical quality solutions on a small budget, there are plenty of lovely ethical choices like Stella McCartney etc but they are unattainable for those on less of a budget or have limited resources or who don’t have parents who have a wardrobe brimming with one of a kind vintage pieces. Hopefully we will get better options than just charity shops… and the odd cotton t-shirt!

    Lovely blog by the way. x

    • This is so true. There’s a few online retailers like People Tree that sell ethical clothing without the designer price-tag, but you’re right, even then you’re still expected to pay out at least £25 for a simple t-shirt. I think there’s hope for us though, H&M have just brought out a great ethical range which only cost a fraction more the rest of their clothes (see above). Considering how quickly the items sold out, I think this is going to become more and more common, and hopefully lots of other highstreet stores will follow suit. Fingers crossed! Thanks so much for this comment, if you’d like to read future posts I’d love for you to follow me 🙂 I look forward to reading your posts too.
