'I bought this dress a couple of years ago from ASOS. It’s one of my favourite pieces, as it’s comfy and easy to throw on but looks like I’ve made an effort. I’ve worn it with flats, oversize blazers, heels and sparkly headbands. But my favourite thing about it is that it cost less than £100 and is still going strong, proving you don’t need to spend a fortune to shop sustainably.'
