An Aussie Made Dress to Live in This Summer // Olaf Designs
You know those wardrobe pieces that you tend to live in all season long? The clothes that are always on high rotation because they can easily be completely changed with the addition of different heels, bags or accessories?
Yeah, I reckon this slate blue dress by Australian fashion label Olaf Design Studio is going to be one of them.
It's floaty and comfy, and its colour makes me feel super happy.
Olaf Design Studio's pieces are all sewn in Brisbane by Christina Lombardi, using sustainable and animal friendly materials. Her pieces are made to order too, so you can customise things if you wish. (I am ALL ABOUT this kind of fashion <3 )
This dress is made from an eco-friendly blend of linen and tencel, and I've styled it in a bunch of different ways here to show off its versatility.
Last weekend I teamed it with long brown boots to wear to Melbourne's new monthly Vegan Mini Market (where I managed to pick up some locally grown veggies, my favourite nut butters from 99th Monkey, and a beautiful kimono handmade in Melbourne by Leo The Label).
