Sooooo Pretty...

Thats what I thought when I saw these photos showcasing Lydra's new collection of bags. I love the fact that these bags are not only beautiful and one of a kind but also that all of Lydra's products are made from pre-loved fabrics which are produced and sourced locally. Keeping a strong emphasis on preserving the environment. That is just awesome :-)

Shop Update & Preview!

80s Purple Patent Belt -- 80s Purple Chiffon Scarf
 I think this belt would be perfect to cinch in a pretty dress or a button up oxford shirt! The scarf is so floaty and has an amazing 80s geometric print in a wicked colour combination. Both in the Shop now!
90s Navy Bag -- 90s Cactus Print Scarf
These two are a sneak peak and will be in the shop soon. This scarf has such a fun print with potted cacti and blue hats. The dark blue cross body/shoulder bag is super cute and I've had to fight temptation to keep it for myself....

Clothing should amplify a person, not create one.

"Clothing is our expression of self, our bodies are the one thing we control exclusively. Clothing should amplify a person, not create one. I am bored of androgeny, I think we need the equal and opposite: intensify the masculine and the feminine, all at once. I love the beauty of the past, we all draw on if for our inspiration and should give credit where it's due..."

Chie Mihara's Comfortable heels

I've heard these shoes are really comfy (for heels!) so I checked them out. They have some really funky designs and also some more classical sandals.  Chi Mihara is the woman behind the brand and design. She wanted to make shoes for women which were practical as well as beautiful. In her words "We want to look feminine, beautiful, attractive but without giving up comfort".

I love that you can see how their shoes are made on their website. You can even see photos of the workers having a party- how cool is that?! I wish there was more awareness of how so much of our clothing is produced. I think more people would make more of an effort to buy from ethical stores if that were the case.
