Let’s change the fashion game

Fashion is fast becoming one of the biggest threats to the sustainability of our precious planet.

But that doesn’t mean we have to feel guilty about loving it so much, we just need to change the way we create it, use it, wear it and eventually ‘dispose’ of it.

Only buy something if you truly love it then you’ll happily wear it again and again. Get creative, upcycle tired old items and turn them into new ensembles. Buy vintage, rework old vintage and mend instead of trash.

 

Lights, camera and canine action

It’s that time again when I turn my house into a photographic studio and every corner becomes a possible fashion set!

So I thought I’d treat you to some behind-the-scenes moments from the weekend’s shoot and an exclusive peek at my new eco T-shirt collection.

as usual no fashion shoot at mine is complete without the help/hinder of my four legged assistants but With Clothes and dogs everywhere, I’m in my absolute element!

Massive thanks to Hannah (@hannahlittler1) for working her magic in front of the camera and being my muse for the day.

‘Blame it on the Moon’ collection of ethical and sustainable fashion slogan t-shirts and sweatshirts will be in store later this week

… just a few thousand pics to go through first!

So my latest commission was the sweetest sentiment, I was asked (by Justin) to paint his handwritten message onto this jacket for his girlfriend’s birthday. We decided to keep it in the style of his handwriting to add that extra personal touch! What an absolute pleasure helping out in the name of love! All done and on it’s way to NYC… Judy you’re one lucky lady, extra brownie points to you Justin 🙌🏼❤️👫

Barrow Girl

There’s nothing I love more than getting back to my barrow girl roots and hitting the road bringing my vintage fashion finds to fellow vintage overs across the country. When you’re so used to being stuck behind your laptop on a daily basis and working in relative solitude It’s always a special treat to meet your customers face to face and mingle with your fashion tribe.

I’m always fascinated when witnessing the process of a big empty space transform into a buzzing, thriving vintage haven. And when the venue is as beaut as the custard factory (birmingham) I just couldn’t resist snapping the behind-the-scenes set up of a pop up vintage fair! …what a gorgeous loft style apartment this would make!

So here are some of my favourite moments from the recent fairs in Birmingham, Chester and Liverpool for Judy’s affordable vintage fair.
