Zoe of I Knew I Was Next (IKIWN) describes her style as '90s high school drama teacher' so you can probably already guess that we are kindred spirits. She's a fellow #ScotGalGang girl and lives in our home turf of Dundee. When I read her outfit posts I covet her style but she's primarily aimed at plus size readers, proving that you can find affordable stylish gems at any size. I personally love style blogs that aren't 'latest trend' focused but are still contemporary and cool. Zoe has a subtle nod to vintage and a bold aesthetic but what I particularly like is the way she focuses on budget fashion- where she features vintage and charity shop finds, bargains and make the most of your existing wardrobe.
You can stalk Zoe on Twitter like I do, or catch her latest looks on Instagram.
Helen is crushin' on... The Un-Material Girl
I've been on the look out for more tips and advice on embracing slow fashion and The Un-Material Girl is just the ticket. Brisbane based Leah used to be a fast fashion addict but turned things around to become an activist and advocate for shopping small, ethically and with sustainability in mind. All good things in my book. From short snappy posts that share independent brands to videos interviewing ethical designers. Plus she has some great personal style, showing that slow fashion doesn't have to be boring.
