A lovely compact book with lots of ideas and encouragement to make your wardrobe more environmentally friendly.
Thank you Bev. 100 tips that I really hope you'll find useful.
What a lovely read. Emma gives useful advice on using our clothes more ethically. I haven't tried restyling anything I already own but am considering trying that rather than buying something new. Thank you Emma for this lovely book. I would recommend it.
So good you reviewed it twice? We hope so! :)

I'd love to see any re-styling changes you do make Eileen. It can be daunting but hugely rewarding, especially if it's something that's been sat on the 'maybe' pile for a while.
A handy book with plenty of helpful tips and tricks to make your wardrobe go further and make you think about your relationship with fashion and consumption. Will be referring to this regularly.
Great to hear it's got the conscious consumption cogs whirring :) Thank you for your support Charlene.
An excellent read, full of ideas and tips for a more sustainable approach to fashion but still feeling good about ourselves and understanding our wardrobes better. Emma makes so much sense but I must work harder at the one item in and one item out routine!
A really useful dipping in and out of book
Certainly easier said than done Andrea! Thank you for taking the time to review my book, I'm so pleased you find it useful.
