Countdown to Christmas - Day 9 - Style A Day



Natalie Kay Smith – Responsible Fashion Blogger:


For today’s style steal, we thought we would focus on +Natalie Smith from Sustainably Chic a sustainable fashion blogger that is living proof that Fashion Can Exist Responsibly. Over the years we have got to know Natalie and her zest for fashion.







Here, are our favourite day time looks for Natalie; Natasha Jersey Top or the Eloise-Dungaree-Dress, as Natalie loves a day dress or a jersey top.







As Natalie is not one to worry about trying something a little different, we have selected with our Kalani silk-lined jacket and Fahra Velvet Dress;





For New Years eve, Mary A-Line Skater Dress, is Natalie down to a 't' and is now available in Sale 





It’s simple style and beauty can be dressed up with a good ethically produced coat and heels, or dressed down in a simple cardi and boots. It’s all up to you, but whatever you choose, make sure you put your own spin on it with a conscious outlook – you could be someone else’s ethical style inspiration

Our Muse - Corrine Bailey Rae



Madia & Matilda's girl crush at the moment has to be the gorgeous Corrine Bailey Rae her style seems to be effortless and completely natural, we are loving her outfits which just enhance her brilliance. I mean look at her, the colours suite her skin tone perfectly, she keeps it classy showing just the right amount of flesh, the silhouettes and fit of her clothes suites her figure to a T. We feel that she would suite our brand's aesthetic effortlessly, her nonchalant attitude would suite our chic sophisticated look.
