Its funny, yesterday I was thinking how nice it would be if there was an online sample sale type company that sold only eco-friendly brands…and this morning I got an email from Girly Girl Army telling me my dream has come true! Amazing! Pure Citizen is just what I was looking for! I’m super excited about this site. Check it out for yourself and be prepared for some great sales to come!
I’m SUPER EXCITED about my latest purchase. I just ordered this adorable gray tank from Vaute Couture. Leanne, the fabulous vegan designer is also the model in the photo above. The tank is $32 and even better, shipping is only $2! I’m really looking forward to the fall when she offers sweatshirts similar to these tanks.
I’m super excited about the new eco-friendly, sustainable Garden Collection from H&M! The collection is fun, flirty and full of flowers for summer! The bulk of the collection is $29.95 so it’s insanely affordable. The collection launches tomorrow – March 25!
I just purchased this dress from Kind Boutique and it is absolutely adorable! I think it’s a great transition dress into spring and summer. Right now you can wear it with tights and boots and later with cute heels or fun summer sandals! I love detailing at the neck – it takes it from a basic grey t-shirt dress to something with a little pizazz! Erin from Kind Boutique said it also looks fab belted!
Crafted from organic cotton this super-soft, dappled grey tunic will definitely be a well loved favorite.
All Popomomo pieces are sewn, dyed, and printed sustainably and locally in LA, using eco-friendly fabrics.
Ingredients: 100% hemp/ organic cotton jersey
I just have to take a moment to rave about how fabulous Kind Boutique is!! I recently ordered a pair of shoes and a dress from Erin at Kind Boutique and not only do I love my purchases, but her packaging is absolutely ADORABLE!!!! Little touches make huge impressions in my mind. At first sight even the normally ugly brown shipping box was cute – she decorated it with a couple little animal stickers – it made getting the package even more exciting! Now I really should have taken a photo of it so you could see first hand but of course I just wasn’t thinking. Anyway, upon opening the shipping box, my dress was neatly wrapped in tissue with more adorable stickers of cute furry friends and a little handwritten note thanking me for my purchase. Erin has definitely found herself a new, loyal customer!
I have a baby gift to purchase and am super excited to check out Nat & Helens. I’ve been looking at the website but can’t wait to go into the store. Check out the online site or visit their Chicago store – I’ll let you know what I think once I make it in there but the online store as lots of super cute stuff – organic cotton, bamboo, etc.
I found a new clothing line that I’m loving. ecoSkin uses only environmentally sustainable luxury fabrics woven, dyed and sewn in the USA. My first purchases from the line were a cute top as seen below and bamboo/spandex leggings with – coconut buttons on the back above the ankle (I couldn’t manage to copy a photo of them from the website – so you’ll have to check them out on your own)
I’ve really been making an effort to purchase organic fabrics. American Apparel, which I already love as they make their stuff downtown Los Angeles, has a few great pieces.
I currently have this:
Today I found this cute dress online and plan to purchase it soon:
Did you know…Conventional cotton is one of the most chemically-dependent crops, sucking up 10 percent of all agricultural chemicals and 25 percent of insecticides on 3 percent of our arable land; that’s more than any other crop per unit. That adds up to 1/3 of a pound of chemicals to produce enough cotton for a t-shirt, and 3/4 of a pound for a pair of jeans. And that’s just not bad for the planet; 20,000 deaths occur each year from pesticide poisoning in developing countries, many of these from cotton farming, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
