Mad As A March Hare

Tuesday, 6 March 2012



Is this frock hare print? Is it bunnies*? Am I mad? Is it March? To the last two questions, the answer is yes. To the two others, I dunno. It's a cute print though, no?

*And is it a sign that I've watched entirely too much Buffy that I type that and want to scream "It must be BUNNIES"?


On a slightly more serious note, it's Fairtrade Fortnight and the dress is from People Tree. I wish I could buy stuff from there more often but you should know me by now - I am a) stingy with my money and b) a bit of a charityshopaholic. Hence I lurk on the website when the sales are on (and there are some lovely frocks on there at the moment, argh the temptation) and try and use my minimal shopping budget wisely.

I feel a bit more virtuous about how I've spent my money because it's supporting a company and a cause that I believe in and is way better than investing in yet more poorly made, unethically produced tat. Also, look at the frock! It's awesome, and really lovely fabric. I would so much rather have one of these than three nasty Primark frocks that will fall apart after one wear.

POCKETS!

SHOULDER BOWS!

Dress - People Tree
Cardi - New Look
Necklace - gift
Shoes & bracelet - Dorothy Perkins

ps - unsponsored post, just a company I really admire.

  3. I love that People Tree are doing great looking clothes now. My pet hate back in the day was that ethical clothes often looked very...erm...hippy/tree-dweller. Not that I don't own clothes like that but I'd rather have ethical clothes for all places and looks. Things are so much better now.

  9. That dress is just too cute. I'd like to say bunnies but as they have long ears I'm gonna plump for hares!
    I can see from your Scavenger Hunt photo that you are incredibly busy, but was wondering, has your parcel arrived yet????

  10. I agree with Perdita, so much better than sludge green sacks made of hemp. That pattern is great and the shape is very cute. Must track down old episodes of Buffy.

    ps. I finished answering your tag questions, they're up now.

  14. Hmmm, hares I reckon. The dress is fab - I too lurk on the People Tree website withot often buying as the one downside for me is that my budget really can't stretch that far and so I stick to vintage and charity shops. I really admire what thy're doing though and in the past year I've become so much more aware of how important it is to champion sustainable, ethically made clothes.

  27. What a pretty dress. I've found a couple of People Tree items in charity shops lately (which I sold on Ebay as they weren't my size) and I was impressed by both the style and the quality. A good buy! xxx

    I was going to be all like, 'Oooh, I really like that dress, cute shape and print' and then you brought out the Buffy quotes and I am standing in my room giving you a standing ovation. But basically, YAY. This dress is gorgeous and you look stuuuunning! (And tiny!)

  32. BUNNIES! Definitely bunnies. You've just made me go and buy this!
    Is this the short version? I was going to go for the long one but it's out of stock now.
    It's my birthday in a week, I'm allowed a dress with bunnies on...

  33. Aw, look at their ears! They're tremndous. I like most things bunny orientated and double bonus on the ethical slant. Go you!

  34. I love your dress! I'm a huge fan of People Tree as well! :) I'm also always waiting for the sale as it is quite pricey, but oh so beautiful and very well made.
    I wish I've noticed this bunny dress before and snapped one for myself. I have one with birds :)
