If you follow me on either my personal instagram or on my festival blog Instagram, you’ll see that I’ve been doing a loooot of internet fashion challenges whilst I’ve been in lockdown… Some may say it’s peak boredom, others think I’ve reached full insanity levels but I’m choosing to see it as a much needed creative outlet! I’d highly recommend it to anyone feeling a little stir crazy in these tricky times.
One of the most fun things to put together was this, an extra sparkly festival fashion style version of the very viral #DontRushChallenge. We know that festival season is cancelled but I’m always up for showing some love to the treasured pieces in my wardrobe & I don’t need a field full of ravers to put on my party wear!
Me and my pal Becky from the Anti Diet Riot Club (you might remember her from this post about inspiring activists on Instagram!) pulled together some of our favourite sassy festival loving women and focussed on making it a celebration of body positivity & diversity!
I hope you love it & it inspires you to dust off those sequins from the back of the wardrobe…
Featured in the video are Becky, my friend Ngaio who was also in this post, my festival blogging compadre Jessi aka Where’s My Tent, lovely Luisa, sparkle-tastic Lucie, the epically stylish Lou aka Luinluland all the way from Portland and Adventurous Alex!
Huge disclaimer here…. my hair and face NEVER actually look like that at a festival, can you imagine achieving that in a sweaty tent three days into partying? I like to imagine I come close though 😉
I’m wearing the most epic Lady Jane Gold Sequin Shorts, a vintage sequin shawl as a top, Out of the Ordinary pink sequin jacket, Fussi Frillz headpiece and recycled silk sari kimono from my old Dulcie’s Feathers collection.
The Don’t Rush Challenge was originally created by Toluwalase Asolo and became viral through heaps of incredible Black female creators on platforms like Tik Tok – you can read more about its origins here!
How have you been keeping creative in lockdown? x
