Last weekend, we got our first proper taste of Spring for 2013. It may have felt like it was never going to arrive but now it has, it is time to pack away those winter woollies and dust off something bold and bright for the season ahead. As always, there are plenty of trends around for Spring, so I have picked out a few of my favourites using the Oxfam Online Shop. I love these looks, not just because they are so now but I also think...
Over the last few years we have heard plenty about the issues with fast fashion; the unethical supply chains, pollution and the creation of waste. The constant consumption of the latest, ever changing trends is starting to wear a bit thin with many people.

Not long to go until Christmas party season and if you have been looking for something stunning to wear but don't have a huge budget, you should definitely checkout Oxfam online for some amazing party dresses including some great designer pieces and high street brands.

The challenge involves wearing just six pieces of clothing for the whole of July although you are allowed some additional items including nightwear and accessories. It aims to create an awareness of the current situation regarding fast fashion, how consumption needs to slow down and the pressure on workers and the constant precariousness of jobs and...
