ECO-Friendly Fashion

Ecoganik Supima Jersey Surplus Dress in Orchid


Eco-friendly fashion is a term that we are hearing a lot lately. It is an ideal of creating fashion in a way that will protect the environment and our bodies from harmful processes and chemicals. I think this is one trend that is creating a new genre for fashion and accessories. The buzz words associated with these earth conscious efforts are organic, recycled, and ecological footprint. The definitions are below (taken from http://naturalhealthcare.ca):

organic
Produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides.
recycled
Textiles that have been discarded by consumers, retailers or charitable organizations, which have undergone a discriminating process of sorting, grading and separation into waste-free products suitable for reuse.
ecological footprint
The calculation of the amount of natural resources required by an individual or group of individuals (plants, animals, nations) to sustain itself.
These ideas have been transforming the clothing industry. Eco-Friendly Fashion Shows are popping up everywhere showcasing the more style conscious designs. There are now plenty of options available for the green gal. Mass producing companies like Levi's, GAP, 7for all Mankind, American Apparel and more have introduced their eco-friendly lines. And celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Sheryl Crow, and Stella McCartney are coming out with eco-apparel lines as well. You can even find eco-friendly items at Target and Walmart. This is more than a mere trend and healthy for our planet and bodies too.

Website Focus: Molly's Clothing


Molly's Clothing is an excellent online resource for those looking for modest, trendy quality styles. This boutique offers layering tees, dresses and accessories. It's simplistic lines and ease of wear make this a great choice in looking for basics. This store is about encouraging modest and making it easy. While there isn't a large variety to choose from, I am sure Molly's is going to be bringing us great things. My top picks are this empire dress and the flirty drop waist dress.

Love the Shoes!

Jessica Simpson Women's Tall Wedge Fashion Sneaker


MICHAEL Michael Kors "Heidi" Wedge Sneaker


Tennies Women's Tanya Sneaker















What I am loving now has got to be the wedge sneaker. They are showing up everywhere with big names involved. This crossover style is versatile enough to be worn with a flirty dress, as well as with shorts and tees. Get this stylish shoe at most major retailers such as Nordstroms and Bloomingdales. Some of our favorite online stores such as Zappos.com and Amazon.com have them too.
