For me, buying ethical goods is a high priority.
I want to give my patronage to responsible companies, who had a great message and care about people, animals and the planet – but I know that stereotypically that doesn’t go hand-in-hand with being on trend.
That’s why when Nomads Clothing invited me to review a piece from their current range, I was thrilled.
They put great focus on ethically sourcing their products- and their fair trade policy is open and honest – which I love – but some of their pieces are also really current!
I chose their embroidered boho dress, which is a sort of tunic style with beautiful fluted sleeves and super intricate embroidery – I must admit that it far exceeded my expectations when it arrived. The quality is fantastic, the cotton is really soft and the beading and embroidery is beautifully finished. My only pointer is that the colour is slightly more purple than the picture. Initially I was disappointed by that, but since wearing it, I’m actually glad!
Now… As much as I love the boho look, it isn’t one I wear very often, but with a little playing around I came up with some looks I really enjoy – for example the look shown above is ultra boho, mixed with some suede moccasins from Minnetonka and this tied knot belt.
It’s so cosy for a lounge-around Sunday afternoon, and that’s just what I wore for a little autumn walk followed by a TV day with Mr K last weekend!
I must admit I had never shopped with Nomads before, but this piece has really lit a fire in me, and I’ve got my eye on a few styles from their current collection – I can’t wait to try out their skinny jeans!
Do you prioritise buying ethically? Do you have any favourite places to pick up cute, fair trade pieces?
