Ethical Fashion: October

My wardrobe and I were both resisting the incoming Autumn, but days of flip flops and t-shirts were beginning to result in frost bitten toes and permanent goosebumps,  I felt like it might be time to update a few pieces just in time to battle the 70 mile an hour winds that Cornwall likes to throw at me during Autumn and Winter.

However, as always, scrolling through eBay and depop, you do not typically stay on track.


The first thing I got this month was actually weather appropriate! This lovely thick turtleneck jumper is originally from Topshop, but I got it on eBay for just £10. I have literally lived in this since I got it because it is super versatile, as it is long enough to wear with leggings but also looks great with jeans.


The next two items are a super cool vintage billabong t shirt from depop, which was £5 and black denim dungarees, also from depop, for £12. Dungarees are great for layering, so I am hoping to get lots of use out of these in the coming months!


I thought this gorgeous playsuit would also be great for layering with tights and boots during the colder months, and as a self diagnosed free people addict, I couldn’t pass it up! I picked this up for £10 on eBay.

My second free people find this month was a paisley slip dress, which will also look awesome with tights and boots and a big denim jacket! This too was just £10 from eBay.

The next addition to my wardrobe was this motel rocks dress from depop. At £6, I couldn’t resist as again, I thought this piece would be great for layering, and I also LOVE the print!

Lastly, is my lovely new free people vest top from free people. Probably the most summery of the bunch, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t worn it to death since getting it! I love the embroidery and the open back so made sure to pick it up when I saw it on eBay for £5.

I’m still waiting on a couple of bits to arrive, as I also purchased a new coat and another jumper, so shopping second hand, as you can see, really isn’t very difficult. Not only are you saving loads of money but it also cuts down on manufacturing demands, meaning it is greener than purchasing new goods, as it encourages reusing and recycling.
