I dropped in to visit my favourite slow-fashion movement friends at Ra Ra Superstar last weekend, to try on the adorable new matchy-matchy sets that they have in store!
You might be wondering why I often rabbit on about sustainable or slow fashion, the short story is that it ties in with how I plan to live my life. The less of a negative impact I can make on this world and on the environment – the better!
Modern society is so fast paced that we have no chance of keeping up with the latest and greatest of everything (yet we need it ALL now!). As a result we are churning through mass produced, low quality products that fast become landfill, and we are depleting our natural resources at a rapid rate. 😦 Boo.
Kathy (the creative genius behind Ra Ra Superstar) helps to reduce the human footprint on our planet Earth by creating cute new clothes out of vintage fabrics and clothing, and reselling fabulously quirky one of a kind pieces that you won’t find anywhere else.
So you better get in quick – outfits new and old don’t stick around for too long at Ra Ra Superstar. Make sure you head on over to the Facebook page cause you don’t want miss a thang!
Top, skirt, socks & necklace all from Ra Ra Superstar.
May 10th, 2014 I took the plunge and starting posting my thoughts online for the first time ever! I was an avid Instagrammer from day dot… and I was ready to take the next step and commit to blogging! Read my first ever post here.
A year later Lexie Lou is still small, but growing every day! I’m celebrating my blog birthday with a lovely giveaway to thank my friends, family and followers for being a part of it.
A few of the wonderful local labels I regularly collaborate with have joined in on the birthday celebrations and have provided the following delightful trinkets 😀
The first giveaway (drawn today!) includes:
My second giveaway has more of a sparkly theme, and includes:
Just head to my Instagram to find out how you can win!
Thank you all once again for supporting me and following my adventures, I appreciate all of you who make Lexie Lou possible 🙂 ❤
Once I was kitted out in my next outfit, we explored a little further and found a quiet backstreet to take some snaps.
Another of my favourites of the day, this boxy crop is a perfect weekend piece you can mix and match with your wardrobe.
Here I am wearing a super bright vintage swimsuit, and a vintage denim skirt that caught my eye immediately with it’s adorable pocket bow details. I’m loving the washed out bleached colour – it’s perfect for summer denim.
You can shop these one-off pieces & accessories in store at Ra Ra Superstar 🙂
Last weekend I had the immense pleasure of visiting Ra Ra Superstar again to check out some delightful new gear!
I couldn’t help but smile as I walked down the cutesy pink pathway exploding with colour, lined with racks upon racks of clothing – this feels like home!
My first outfit started with a satin flowing crop top that made me feel like a fairy queen! We paired it with a sparkly squishy fishy necklace (it was love at first sight!) and a flirty tie die skirt.
Keep on scrolling and explore the back alleys of beautiful Paddington with me as I frolic about in adorable frocks 😛
