The first place I went after restarting my entire wardrobe was Nobody’s Child. I’d never shopped there before but as I am now in a full on identity style crisis and trying to find my personal style, I thought I’d give it a go rather than the usual shops I frequent. I’ve been loving turtle/polo necks on me and long sleeves that go down to my knuckles and I saw a lovely long-sleeved grey dress with just that.
I sent away for the dress, as well as a sleeveless turtle neck vest with slits up each side, and some wet look leggings. Nobody’s child is an ethical, ‘fast-fashion’ website launched in 2015. I can’t fault on their prices but I didn’t have a lot of hope for the quality. I was pleasantly surprised! The vest is thicker and softer than the dress, so I might get more wear out of that than the dress at the moment. Even down to the packaging, I thought it was a nice added touch, especially the little bracelet that they included in the delivery note.
As mentioned previously, my style changes based on what mood I’m in rather than the popular trends in the shops for the season. I was in a bit of a badass-ey mood. I’ve recently had a bit of a “so there” moment as I stuck up for myself about something, so the blacks, greys, industrial setting and cacti for this look are probably relating to that*. “Nobody’s child” even sounds badass.
Everything I owned previously was black and it’s difficult to steer myself away (and grey isn’t much of a change). I added my New Look black boots and my Missguided black beanie. I sported some orange lipstick to add a pop of colour and my nails would have been orange too if I was strong enough to have got the pot of nail varnish open. Not so badass.

Nobody’s child have some really lovely things in at the moment, I’ll probably be back for some Spring/Summer pieces. Maybe something less industrial, more girly – depending on my mood of course!
