Well Made Clothes is the online fashion marketplace of your ethical dreams

Make no bones about it – we are absolute fiends for online shopping. What’s not to love about sprawling out on the couch with a glass of wine and picking up a killer new outfit from the comfort of your own home? Well, one of the things not to love is the fact that plenty of our favourite dotcom shopping haunts are actually littered with brands that aren’t actually all that friendly to the earth. Here to save you all of the Googling and put your mind at ease is Well Made Clothes, an online shopping hub that only stocks brands that are good in every sense of the word – not just aesthetics. more

Inside and out – the chic slippers you can wear anywhere (even the pub)

While the topic of shoes can invoke some pretty strong opinions, there is one thing pretty much all of us can agree on – slippers are dope. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of coming home after a long day and sliding your weary feet into cloud-like comfort, but unfortunately our beloved slippers rarely get a run outside the house unless we’re checking the mail or sheepishly collecting an UberEATS order. Folks, the stigma has been lifted – Bertie is here to take your slipper fantasy beyond your front door and into a whole new world. more

Picture this ¬– you’re on an opulent cruise ship when a storm ravages the deck, sweeping you overboard and into the ocean.

All eyes on me – Assembly Label launches its chic unisex sunglasses range

Simplicity is a really tricky thing to nail, especially when it comes to fashion. If something is too pared back it becomes bland, but if the designers refuse to edit and refine it can all become a mess. One name that has always been a go-to for the perfect balance is Assembly Label, the Sydney staple that has been dressing us in its covetable threads since 2007. If you love yourself some minimalism, you will be pleased to note that Assembly Label has dropped a killer unisex range of sunglasses – and yes, it’s just as chic as you would expect. more

Bold as love – Happy Socks celebrates the legendary Keith Haring with a fresh capsule collection

It is these qualities that inspired purveyors of joy Happy Socks to celebrate his work with a limited edition capsule collection. more

Treat yo’self – splurge your hard-earned cash at Brisbane City’s high-end stores

Look, it would be great if we lived in the sort of rap fantasy world where we could drape ourselves head to toe in LV without batting an eyelid or maxing out our credit cards. For most of us, getting kitted out in those fancy labels and iconic monograms seems like a pipe dream … but it doesn’t necessarily have to be.
