An entertaining celebration of sustainable fashion, buying well and finding your style in the twenty-first century. 'The point of this book is to explore my ideas for sartorial satisfaction, to tell the stories associated with my love of clothes and fashion, and to share the mess...age of accidental sustainability.' When Peta Mathias dug through the clothes she had stored away for twenty years in her shed, she realised it was full of valuable, beautiful items that were crying out to be worn again- 'Fashion is mysterious, irresistible and alluring . . . they are not just frocks - they are beauty, art, history, emotion, memory, identity and, above all, joy.' From this arose a new appreciation of buying well but cannily, so your clothes will not bankrupt you nor go out of fashion. Reviving her neglected wardrobe, Peta revelled in mixing fabrics, colours and patterns, considering how to make an impact and how that dull pair of shoes can be transformed into something just a little bit fabulous.
