This can be tough, therefore we have collated our recommendations for sustainable party outfits; here are 5 ethical and sustainable outfit ideas for a night out

First off, we have our Amelia Dress one of our timeless signatures and Clara is a newbie design that is perfect for the dance floor,  (style up with a belt or down with boots, if you are going for that Boho vibe). These two LBD's are made for comfort and style, which is difficult to come by with fast fashion alternatives.


Yet with our designs we look to create effortless styles from discarded materials and clothing; which gives you eco-points; when prepping for party season.

Greta and Ruth are fabulous repeat offenders that now come in different colours and lengths, check out the options, before you purchase

We know, last-minute panic purchase are usually the norm, but we feel a greater execution, comes with a greater awareness of sustainability. Therefore, this Christmas party season, we hope you take a different approach to clothes shopping for the festivities. Especially as most party sequins or embellishments are not biodegradable. Yet! do not fear, we have ways of creating dazzle with minimal harm to the environment.

Last but not least our Dina Lace Blouse are perfect for drinks at a bar or a winter wedding, made from deadstock, residual fabrics leftovers are sewn together by seamstresses in Gloucestershire with flattering sizing from a 6 to 20, our styles are an inclusive and all dresses are hand- or machine-washable; so no need to take it to the dry cleaners.

Blogger Feature

Meet Florence! The fairy-like blogger living in - we are totally obsessed with this little cutie's style and her amazing photos! We caught up with Florence to chat about her influences, beauty secrets and the inspirations behind the styles Florence has selected from the Madia & Matilda Summer 17 collection.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? 

I'm Flo, I'm a student, fashion addict and a total dessert-lover. I also have an adorable dog who's 10 years old so he's practically an old man.

How long have you been Blogging for? 

I started in 2010, so it has been over 7 years since I've started blogging. It's one of my passions because it helped me make friends when I'm down and lonely. Also it has brought me closer to many other bloggers out there. I've also learned a lot about fashion trends and what's good and bad. 

Is there anything specific that inspired your Madia & Matilda photoshoot?

I always take my shots against a white background, which fits the Madia & Matilda brand very well. Your style is simplistic, elegant and minimal, with a feminine, gentle twist. I tried to get this feeling across in my photos. 

Which is your favourite Madia & Matilda piece of our Summer 17 collection? 

I adore the Rache Denim Dress- it's so pretty and simplistic. It just screams "classy"! 

Beauty secrets... 

Sleep well, eat well and exercise! I also use lots of moisturizer as I have dry skin. Sunscreen helps! 

If you can take us to your hometown for a day, where will you take us to? 

I'd take you to the street markets down in the busiest parts of town, near Mong Kok. It has got the best street food you'll ever eat!

Rainy Day Outfit Inspo

There are times in the year when the sun ceases to exist and clouds rally their forces and join sides to release a downpour of rain on our shores. Don’t let the lack of sunshine and warm rays this season ruin your vibe though – we have taken the liberty of concocting some of the sweetest styles for rainy weather this year so you can still rock your look on Umbrella Days.

First up is our Anya Long Sleeve Jersey top with tights and boots wrapped up underneath the Eloise Dungaree Dress. The look is simple but the layering adds elegance to the style and is sure to keep you wrapped up cosy and warm all day under your winter coat.

With Britain being renown for rainy days - 2 staple layering items that are perfect for mood-swing days are the; Maaike T-shirt with Alicia Mini Skirt and tights - great transitional piece into the spring weather.

The third outfit to bring a little sunshine to your style this month is the new Sura Frill Top with our always-in-style Jean Slim Cut Trousers and layered with a jumper and a calf-length coat on top.

Why not add some of our curated brand LilyFlo’s jewellery for a little extra glam?

Vega Bracelet
For those of you craving something a tad more daring – the Shan Long Sleeve Blouse and our Simone Chequered Print Wrap Skirt is super elegant and can be worn with brogues or boots and a coat to really add to the look.

Are you one to let the weather ruin your outfit? Want to channel your inner Nicole Richie? like our Instagram earlier this month, the Ruth Strap Dress is the perfect dress for a glam night out this weekend. Add a pair of heels, your favourite clutch and a red lippy that would make even T-Swift jealous and you might give Nicole Richie herself a run for her money.

Don’t forget to take a sheer umbrella with you and not even your brolly can hide your style!
...Or master the sexy wet hair look from Sel slaying here!
