An interesting video from Charlotte Olympia which sees the handmade and the artisan glorified in the face of the fast fashion industry, that we currently live in. I believe in building a collection of beautiful pieces that will last forever. However I am definitely guilty of a wandering eye and the temptations of the high street copies. My new rule is that I must really love it and if I am still thinking about it over the next few days, then I really want it. It is important to choose pieces that work with your personal style and shape rather than going for the passing trends that can be so fickle. So pick colours that suit you and avoid too much print, unless of course you love the print so much so that it won’t end up becoming another fad, stuck in a fashion time warp.
