Sustainable earrings
by Thomai Papathanasiou

I am a big fan of contrasts when it comes to my outfits and this brand new pair of sustainable earrings gave me the inspiration for this look. I received them on Friday as a present and I just had to use them almost right away!

My love for earrings is evident and I believe that the more unique they are, the better. You might be wondering why I am calling them sustainable but Alê my wonderful boss that gave them bought them from a shop in Brooklyn, NY that has things from all over the world made by women and promotes social and environmental sustainability.

So the earrings were the starting point of this outfit. I decided to use their colours for the rest of the look therefore I had red, blue and gold to play around with. I don’t have many clothes in red so there were not many options for this particular colour. Hence, I went for the red dress.  I have become quite fond of it because every time I wear it I get compliments. Consequently, it was an easy choice to make 😉

The next step was to determine the shoes but it was a very easy choice to make. Gold shoes are a must. They are the perfect compliment for any look and make a great match with anything. So if you don’t have a pair I suggest you go get one asap!

For the touch of blue, I decided to wear this cross body bag that I hadn’t used it in quite some time. Even thought it is not big enough for my everyday needs, it is just perfect for an evening out or the weekend when I don’t need to carry so many things. In order to give the final strokes I chose to use blue sunglasses and red lipstick.

So this is how from a pair of sustainable earrings you get to a complete look filled with contrasts of colour! I hope my process can inspire you to create your own outfits 🙂
