Ethical Fashion or Not – Is It Still Frivolous?

Ethical Fashion or Not – Is It Still Frivolous?

Fashion is often perceived as frivolous. It’s easy to understand why. Fashion companies releasing countless ‘collections’, the cheapness of ‘fast’ fashion, the rise of ‘it’ girls, the influx of ‘sell out’ fashion bloggers, are all factors that seem to tarnish fashion’s reputation so that its significance is almost forgotten. Its reputation as a commercial enterprise...

For The Love of Vintage Clothing

For The Love of Vintage Clothing

Once upon a time there used to be this stigma associated with buying second hand goods. Fortunately for me, my addiction to vintage and second hand clothing had formed when I was too young and too poor to care about what other people thought. And if I were to blame anyone for my second hand...

So You Think You Can Farm?

So You Think You Can Farm?

Starting a business is not for the faint hearted, but starting a farming business? Pursuing this idea is not just on a whole other level, it is in its own stratosphere.

Aside from the hours spent working on our business idea (my fiance Ben and my future father in law Paul and I are equal...

Don’t Palm Us Off

I have this second hand Melbourne Zoo tee that I picked up from Savers (surprise, surprise) that I’ve been wearing a lot lately and could have something to do with my recent obsession with Jane Goodall, the famous primatologist who is planning to visit Melbourne in June. What I like most about the tee is...

Let’s Play

While Melbourne’s unbearable summer weather continues to annoy most of its residents, breaking heat records and stumping climate change skeptics, life has continued rather normally at Eco Warrior Princess headquarters, albeit with some minor adjustments. Although I still haven’t purchased a fan for the room and don’t have air conditioning in the apartment, I am...

Eco Warrior Princess Returns

Eco Warrior Princess Returns

Life often unfolds in a way that you can’t control. You either fight it or you can go with it. I’m renowned for going with the flow. And that’s exactly what I did in the latter part of 2013. Eco Warrior Princess had to take a backseat to many other things, including a demanding new...

Green Fashion Envy: My Vintage Bag

Green Fashion Envy: My Vintage Bag

When I purchased a tanned leather vintage bag at my friend Wendy Grace’s wardrobe sale, I had no idea that it would become so popular amongst my friends, family and complete strangers. Wendy, founder of fashion blog Little Jimmy’s Girl and a friend with impeccable style, renowned for her love of textures and layers, held...
