1. Enhance your creativity. The fact that you can style them in a hundred different ways makes you have to squeeze your imagination so that you can always come up with a fun and original look. This is a complete new feeling for us when it comes to fashion, given that the usual is to have your wardrobe full of clothes whose shape can’t be altered.

2. Are incredibly versatile. It’s up to you to drees them up or down. Of course, with the appropriate accessories and hairstyle, they can be perfect for a wedding – even the short ones! But, if you want to wear it to a girl’s night out, or even to a day walk into the city, you just need to find the right plain sandals and oversize shirt so that you can create a more uncomplicated look. Sometimes a romantic messy hair already sets the difference.

3. Can be easily borrowed. Convertible dresses can fit until 10 different sizes. Thus, your friends or sisters don´t need to have your same body complexion in order to sneak into your wardrobe and steal them from you for a little while!

The thing with weddings is that we just don’t get enough of them. So, for those of us who enjoy dressing up for big events, we certainly face the risk of overdoing our outfit led by the excitement of the moment.

So, there is no reason to sabotage yourself by picking up the wrong accessories – especially now that there are so many comfy platform sandals to choose from.
  2. Plan ahead. You don’t want to be deciding on what to wear or how to wear it the day before the event. Try out your outfit quietly at home so that you can pay attention to detail. For instance, getting the right underwear is essential. Is your bra or the seam of your panties showing? Will your jewellery or headdress hold their positions all through the day/night? Read more

What am I doing here? That’s exactly what Sia Bredow asked herself after having worked as a designer for a few years for the conventional fashion industry. “Everything was so contrary to my beliefs, until one day I just quitted,” explains Sia to us while enjoying a cup of green tea. “I was totally unhappy, but that’s not easy to see when you get all caught up in the daily routine. Sometimes you are just too used to the things that surround you to be able to refelct on the troubles you are facing.”

After dropping her job she needed a break to figure out what her next step was going to be. She wanted to reconnect with herself and listen to her own thoughts – without feeling the influence of other people. So she decided to take some time off and headed out to the North of Spain, where El Camino de Santiago (also known in English as the Way of St. James) awaited her. She started in Le Puy en Velay, in France, and travelled nearly 2000 km by foot. Read more
