Sustainable Fashion with Madia & Matilda

Hi readers!

This blog post is going to be a little different.

I will be reviewing two pieces of Madia & Matilda ‘s collection.

I’m no beauty or fashion guru, so please do bear with me as I try my hardest..

Before I get into the products, the first impression you may have as you come across their collection, is the simplicity of their clothing. At least that’s certainly what I felt.

Classic and timeless pieces which coincide with the intention to spread awareness about how we can contribute in sustaining the environment and the way we must handle our scarce resources for future generations.

I have never had an opportunity to collaborate with brands, so when I was first approached by one of the members of the Madia & Matilda team, I was excited.

As I researched more and more into the company’s philosophy, I also became more and more drawn into what they are trying to advocate.

With the current environmental issues, Madia & Matilda show they’re compassion through tackling and attempting to solve a number of these problems.

Now onto the products…


Your Classic Skater Dress with a Twist:

Literally a twist…

I especially love the detail of the tie-up since I am a sucker for anything that showcases a bit of my back during the summer (though, it’s not so good when attempting to obtain an even tan)…

Additionally, it gives any plain item a boost.

Madia & Matilda use friendly fibres as well as reusing leftover fabrics as part of their sustainable process into creating their timeless pieces, in house in Britain.

For this skater dress, it was very comfortable to wear and it’s something I can wear with any accessories. If I were to “run out(ladies, you know what I mean) of clothes to wear, this is something I could put on and throw anything over it, depending on my mood.

I decided to pair this dress with a thrifted hat, a choker, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and vans.

A very laid-back and effortless look, which I am all about..

However, one thing I would like to note is that the fitting of this dress wasn’t tailored to my body shape..

Although you could alter the tightness around the chest area, the waist was rather off but aside from that, I truly like this piece!


Channeling My Feminine Side:

If you’re familiar with my clothing preference, then you would know that I tend to reach for comfortable items on a normal day – mom jeans, oversized sweatshirts and tops, culottes etc.

This blue dress was something a little different to what I would typically wear, but I quickly realised its versatility.

I decided to channel my inner femininity through this piece whilst also making the most of the weather…

Finally, I had a motive to shave my legs after that long winter season…

I paired it with a silver Ray-Ban sunglasses, hoop earrings, a chunky statement necklace, rings and a pair of black platform sandals.

As you can see with the picture above, by adding a formal coat, it seems as if I’m ready to attend my 9am business meeting..

The light wash of this dress will be perfect when my skin is more tanned!


That is all for now!
