It's been more than six months since I've seen the inside of a gym, and you know what? I don't miss it. Here’s why....
The economic downturn means Australian industry is suffering, and spending what we can on local owned and produced fashion is one way to support independent labels. That's what #WeWearAustralian is all about and we're here for it.
It's a time to support Australian fashion so we've compiled our favourite new launches and stylish items for a seasonal roundup. From protective face masks to vegan accessories and hot girl swimwear, you'll find it here. Shop below:
Cool Melbourne-based mask brand The Mask Tribe are your go-to for breathable, pandemic-friendly face coverings. The reusable fabric masks are ideal for chilly weather, skiing or snowboarding.
Invest in a mini or maxi size from the Australian fashion label, depending on your preferance (I'm wearing a maxi, above). Just slip them on like a snood, or pop them over a surgical mask for more comprehensive cover.
If you love cute brooches in the style of Lea Stein, matching scarves and earrings, look no further than Erstwilder. Another Melbourne-based brand, Erstwilder is a trendsetter in kitsch jewellery and vintage appreciation.
We are absolutely loving the Great Prince brooch - and especially the Blue Jay headscarf, which comes in at less than $20. Browse the entire Woodlands collection - inspired by the forests of North America - right here. Be quick though as it's nearly sold out!
Kinds of Grace vegan leather and croc skin bags are locally owned by a lovely couple in Melbourne, but produced abroad. We adore the ethical handbags, wallets and purses in a variety of prints, patterns and fabrics.
