OOTD

Bibico.
A story of organic clothing.

Hello Folks, 
Today is my very first OOTD post & I am extremely nervous posting this one,
 I was kindly sent some beautiful garments from Bibico last week to review. Bibico are an ethical company producing effortless fashion items from quality natural materials and being produced in fairtrade countries. 

The quality of the items I chose were something else, soft and well made. I kindly requested the Boating Stripe Tunic in medium blue, their famous Wrap Dress and Boyfriend Cotton Cardi. 
They arrived beautiful packaged in super quick time with a wonderful postcard note from Nieves  who has been working almost single handedly along side her husband since creating this brand in 2007. Nieves background in designing is extensive, after becoming more aware of the social & environmental impact on the fashion industry Nieves could see that she could combine fashion and fairtrade. You can purchase Bibico online and retails in stores across the UK & Europe also you can find Bibico's concessions range at Topshop, Oxfors Circus.

Being a Plus Size Girl and proud of it the Wrap Dress unfortunately didn't fit, I was blessed with a rather large chest so anything that zips up the side is a no go for me. 
I fell in love instantly with the Boating Stripe Tunic the fit was lovely, it was comfy and so soft. This tunic is 100% cotton, the button detail on the back is quirky and wonderfully nautical. I have always been a huge fan of stripes, maybe I was destined to be a sailor, but I lack the ability to swim!





Tunic - Bibico
Super Cosy Tights - Primark
Yellow Moccasins - Primark
Necklace - Vintage (Made by me from and old pocket watch)
Hat - Henry's Dad's








 My close friend Martha kindly modelled the Wrap Dress & Cardi for me but she is ever so shy and this is the only photo I was allowed to use.
(how amazing is her hair)

Overall I was delighted with these garments they were perfect, I shall be purchasing a lot more from Bibico in the future. Thank you Nieves for creating such beautiful clothing :)
