Fair & Vegan fashion: white shirt dress

White shirt dress by By Maqu €170
Colourful vegan heels by Love Sofie 178$
Burgundy and blush pink purse by Labante £54 (on sale!)
Golden earrings by Lama Moon

The earrings

These ethically handmade artisan earrings look great with the golden hardware of the purse. Lama Moon is a fair trade jewelry boutique for handpicked jewelry items, made by independent designers in sustainable communities. They also give back to girls education around the world.

The dress

The star of the show and my current obsession: the 100% organic GOTS certified poplin dress by Maqu. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments when wearing it – both online and in real life so that’s always a plus! What I love about it is the simplicity and timelessness. It also works for various occassions: work, lunch, brunch, dinner or a relaxed day in the city (combined with white sneakers) so it’s great for a capsule wardrobe and for all of you who are trying to consume less but more long-lasting quality pieces. This dress definitely  inspired me to work more towards building a capsule wardrobe. I wore the sleeves down but you can also flip them like a men’s shirt. For those of you who are not into bows, you can either remove the waist band and wear the dress as an A-line style or simply tie it in a knot instead if you prefer having the waist cinched in. You can further transform the dress if you button it up and even add a ribbon under the colour – there are lots of possibilities to mix it up! The label manufactures ethically in Peru using sustainable manufacturing processes.

The bag

On this day I didn’t carry around much. I needed a light and practical purse that holds my phone, cards, keys, earphones, sunglasses and a lip gloss. This purse is ideal for that. I love the gold hardware and the beautiful vegan leather material. Labante is a great vegan bag (and sunglasses!) label that is PETA-approved.

The shoes

These heels are completely vegan and made from recycled Polyester. The heel is coloured in a bright yellow, the strap in the front is white and the straps at the ankle are made from a material that is sprinkled with colours so that it looks a bit like modern art painting. This print is made in a collaboration with Swedish artist Josefin Liljeqvist. The heels are comfortable because of the support of the ankle straps and they add some colour to the outfit. I am a huge fan of the vegan shoe brand Love Sofie and I love their designs and philosophy.
