Last week here at Witness my revival we tested out theming the weeks post by colour, starting with green (as in lemongrass green...see what we did there?). We had so much fun doing it last week we thought we best do it for each of our Revive flavours.
So this week we are going to theme each post with Orange. Following on from Victoria Beckham's well-received show yesterday, today is a collection of New York Fashion Week pics.
Same sweater, different way...

See you tomorrow!
Thursday. One more sleep to the weekend!
This week has been all about green for us here at Witness my revival, and what better way to spend a Thursday than to share with you a way you can shop and still be eco-friendly. Enter Vestiaire Collective - a cult French online fashion community.
Vestiaire Collective solves the problem many of us have - a full wardrobe but still nothing to wear (Vestiaire meaning wardrobe, from the phrase ‘my friends’ wardrobe’). Sell your unwanted fashion pieces on Vestiaire and then spend your profits online (with so many amazing items on their site this WILL happen...sorry).
It's like vintage shopping, or searching through your friend's wardrobes - but without traipsing all over town. Vestiaire Collective has stringent quality control checks, and once each piece is sold it is checked by Vestiaire Collective's team before it is wrapped in silk paper and sent to your door. Perfection.
Our pick of the Christian Louboutin's on the site:

While the concept of wildlife in popular culture first jumped at us with the likes of Australia’s Crocodile Dundee and Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter, a major shift has occurred seeing wildlife become a trend in even the glossiest publications.
We’ve previously looked at Mulberry’s 'Where the wild things are' campaign as the pin up for the trend, and now Bestival, the final major instalment in the UK Summer music festival calendar, has adopted the trend. Bestival has requested that it’s revellers use Wildlife as inspiration for their mandatory fancy dress costumes – we’re predicting it’ll be a little more Crocodile Hunter than Mulberry.
Reviving wildlife as a festival trend - we love it.
Coming from a family tree that could easily have over-shadowed her, Stella McCartney has built an incredibly successful fashion house and is the fashion industry's self-appointed eco-conscience. From pioneering the production of non-leather accessories and staunchly not using fur in her collections she has had a huge part to play in moving eco-fashion from the sandals and socks territory to something that is beautifully wearable.
McCartney has always endeavoured to have her designs be as sustainable as possible, but is also not willing to let eco-guidelines decrease the beauty of her pieces - making as many parts of her designs as environmentally-aware as they can be is the goal. To that end, Stella McCartney will be the first luxury brand to team with the Natural Resources Defense Council in its Clean by Design program to look at ways to reduce the (hugely polluting) production of textiles.
For Spring Summer 2012, Stella McCartney launched an 'eco-friendly' collection of sunglasses with the collection being made from over 50% natural and renewable resources.
Reviving the fashion industry's production methods? Hats off to you Stella.

Here at Witness my revival we are recovering from a deadly post-bank-holiday-blues slump...Friday just seems so far away!
The only thing that has taken our minds off the Monday blues on Tuesday is the fashion photography of Jean-Paul Goude. In an industry notorious for taking itself too seriously, Jean-Paul Goude's pictures inject fun and humour into shots that are usually devoid of comedy (let alone a smile!); we love the diving shots - so very topical at the moment!
Take a break from your day and have a browse through his shots...it makes a lovely change!
Be sure to check out the rest of his portfolio here: Jean-Paul Goude
