THE (HONEST) PROS & CONS OF SHOPPING MORE SUSTAINABLY

Would you consider trying to shop more sustainably?
Earlier this year I set myself a task: to clear out all mass fashion brand names from my wardrobe by the end of the year. Surprisingly enough, I've stuck to my guns and am pretty on track. Rightttttt, I hear some of you thinking. Why would you set yourself such a goal? Well, in a nutshell, I wanted to create a wardrobe of unique and sustainable designer labels. Eco-friendly brands that I could feel good about buying and wearing.

Alright, so this needs a little backgrounder, so stick with me! I grew up a product of the British high street era. An avid shopper, I could tell you where someones' outfit came from on the spot, virtually from head to toe. I grew up with the boom of sites like ASOS and browsed glossy magazines like LOOK and Grazia for my weekly fashion fix. In short, I L-O-V-E-D clothes.

DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: TRISH VAN N JEWELLERY






When it comes to jewellery, I'm drawn towards eclectic pieces. I can be wearing the plainest outfit, but I'll always accessorise with a big-ass statement ring or bracelet. I like designs with character, and pieces that enable me to do a bit of layering too (if I feel so inclined on the day!)

So, when I happened to be sourcing clothing for a shoot from a cute boutique on Amoy Street called Willow & Huxley, I came across Trish Van N the label and it's been nagging on my mind to post about the jewellery ever since. The local Singapore-based brand is founded by designer Tricia Ng, who has a full-time job and manages the jewellery business as her side-passion (#girlboss).
