Wearing: Freedom Skirt



I've literally been living in my Freedom Skirts over the last two weeks. I know they're from my own brand so it makes sense that i'd spruke them but I'm so thrilled to be producing clothing that really works for my wardrobe. They are 100% hand block printed cotton voile and fully lined and strictly produced to fair trade regulations. They work equally as well on the hip as the waist.

If you've made an order from Bohemian Traders over the past couple of months, thank you for your support. Thank you also for your lovely emials, instagrams and messages - I'm utterly thrilled that you're loving your wares and that they suit your busy lifestyle as much as they do mine. Hellooo easy to wear, dirt disguising, cool breezy clothing.

I'm currently working on a Winter collection (the samples have been arriving over the last couple of days) and when I have some time, I'll compose a post about my plans for Bohemian Traders and my reasons behind starting it.

  2. I'm so in love with all these clothes you've sourced for your shop. I can't afford any of it, but it doesn't stop me dreaming (and putting any spare pennies in a jar in hopes that just maybe I might be able to buy something eventually). I am very in awe though. I think it's wonderful!

  3. I love my blue Freedom skirt, it's funny you posted this as today I was washing mine and actually thinking of you. I wanted to say thank you, thank you for lining it!! So often I don't buy skirts because they're so see through and my thighs are my least loved part of my body so anything that puts them on show usually gets a flick! So yay for giving us a skirt that is lined Em and yay for doing well with your new start up!

  4. You are so gorgeous, Em, and so is your sister-in-law!
    Do you think this would work even if my middle is quite, dare I say, big?

  5. I am making one of your B.T items my next goal-reward. Not sure which item yet, should probably set a goal, too! Hard to choose :) Good on you for getting this loveliness off the ground.

  6. I am seriously kicking myself for deciding not to buy any new clothes in 2014 because I want all of the Bohemian Traders things! They are all exactly the kind of clothes that I like to wear! Do you think a clutch counts as clothes? Maybe I could bend the rules for gorgeous accessories?
    And congrats and well done for creating such a beautiful business!

  7. You seriously need to give me a style over (yes that's a thing!). Over a beer perhaps. I've been eyeing up these freedom skirts. one day when I get paid :). Do they work for us whom are less a few inches?

I am searching for a new lounge so while the skirt is gorgeous and on my list, I am really checking out everybody's lounges and yours stood out.
