DOUBLING UP ❤️🌈❤️⁣ … in @ladoublej, with my little double on the way (swipe!). This is the timeless dress from my @ecoage feature that for me works double as hard day-to-night, year-to-year💚⁣ ⁣ Long-term style taps into #30wears: buy less, repair, treasure, upcycle and wash with care 🧺🧵 We all need to curate a personal style that considers the values of the clothes and the companies behind them. My own is a far cry from the cliché of elegant neutrals… For the article, I was keen to show a different side to investment fashion, beyond the camel coat or the white shirt. I am drawn to colour, prints and joyful detailing – just the traits fast fashion uses to tempt the consumer with its barrage of newness. But on the other hand, these are just the kind of characteristics that will gain you compliments for decades to come when in the hands of a talented creative. ❤️🌈⁣ ⁣ One such designer is @JJMartin of @LaDoubleJ, a woman whose contagious enthusiasm and positive approach to life inspires me endlessly. The brand is made in Italy, its garments do not go on sale and the shapes carry over from season to season. JJ told me: “Clothing that I won’t throw out at the end of a season or end of a year is what timeless dressing really means. I actually wear the same things everywhere and what makes the “dress up” difference is simply switching a comfy sneaker with a jewelled flat, or adding the brilliance of an important jewel near the face. Suddenly you’re sparkling.” Here’s to sparkling 🌟⁣ ⁣ This week, @rachel_arthur and I are welcoming @lucindachambers to @fashmash, a woman who personifies a style that is uniquely her own. Link for tickets in my Stories! 🔜⁣ ⁣ With thanks to House of Hackney for location; a lifestyle brand with a fascinating eco manifesto! 🌍🐅⁣ ⁣ And even bigger thanks to @georgeryanuk for taking these pics at a very special time for ya both 📸⁣ ⁣ Finally, for @arizona_muse’s brilliant #AWearNess – this outfit scores 2/3:⁣ Dress: @ladoublej for above reasons ✅⁣ Boots: @chloe bought at @bicestervillage and worn weekly for 4 years but not yet long enough to qualify so ❌⁣ Earrings: vintage ✅⁣ See her hashtag to rate your outfit too! 🌍✅💚
