    THE PARTY DRESS EDITION

    Do you have weddings and parties to go to this summer but are not sure if there are any Eco and cute dresses out there right for the occasion? Are you also somewhat broke from spending money on the wedding gifts (damn those wedding gifts!!!) and have very little left over to spend on said Eco dress? I’m here to help! I’m listing below some of my recent favorite dresses from Eco-friendly brands:

    image

    ASOS Africa dress with peplum and floral print. Made in Mobasa, Africa from traditional African Kitenge fabric / $42 (on sale from $85)

    ASOS Africa printed midi dress with sheer panel. Handmade in Africa / $85

    Amour Vert Milla front overlap dress in tangerine. Made from organic cotton/bamboo in San Francisco, CA / $118

    H&M Conscious Collection garden maxi dress. Made from recycled materials / $19.99

    (Note: I couldn’t find any of these on the actual H&M website. I don’t think they have online shopping, do they? You will have to find them at your local H&M. Its worth checking out their great Conscious Collection this season! Lots of fabulous very fashionable, very affordable stuff.)

    And a couple of shoes…

  6. Tuesday Night Object of Lust: Is that New Guy on Game of Thrones Hot?

    Dany likes him.

    I think he’s a little too romance novel cover with the flowing hair and the devil-may-care half smile. Idk. I can’t tell. What do you think?

    (I guess in real life he’s a rapper?)

  9. Summer Shopping: Eco + Affordable Basics / 1

    THE T-SHIRT DRESS EDITION

    I’m not a big fan of buying new stuff all the time. I hate those “go buy now!” posts that fashion blogs always have, as if the only way to clothe yourself correctly is to be continuously shopping. I’m a little too frugal though—I’ll usually obsess over something by either waiting for it to go on sale or by taking too long to decide exactly what I want, until it is completely out of season or not made anymore, which is why I didn’t have winter boots for an entire winter once in New York. 

    Now I’ve kind of come to terms with investing in a few great new basics at the start of each season. But I have been majorly obsessing over finding the perfect t-shirt dress for summer. It has to be eco-friendly. It has to be long enough. The fabric has too be good quality but not too heavy and hot. The sleeves can’t be too long or short. And it’s essentially a big t-shirt so I don’t want to pay and arm and a leg. See what it’s like in my head?

    In case you’ve been on the hunt too, I thought I’d share my favorite t-shirt dresses of the season from brands that are eco-friendly and relatively affordable.

    image

    Eileen Fisher Ballet Neck dress in Organic Cotton Hemp twist / $158

    image

    Tricotage Speckled T-Shirt Dress (made from 100% GOTS Certified organic cotton) / $82 (on sale)

    image

    White Tent Striped T-Shirt Dress in Japanese Cotton / $203

    image

    Amour Vert Brigitte T-Shirt Dress (made from organic cotton & linen)/ $79

    image

    Amour Vert Tina V-Neck Tunic in Tangerine Stripe (made from Modal) / $79 

    I’m leaning towards the Tricotage dress because I like the loose fit! Which one is your favorite?

    I’ll have lots of posts for eco-friendly summer shopping coming up. In the meantime, the brands above (as well as A Boy Named Sue and ASOS Green Room) are great places to start. Stay tuned for more!
