The search is on. Yesterday I started my Ebay search and today I went to two consignment stores and had no luck. Next I am going to hit the thift stores and if I find nothing there I am going to have to go new. I really don’t want to buy a new dress that I know I will wear only once, maybe twice. Especially since so far that only dresses that have appealed to me are $300 +
If you have any favorite online second hand stores or places to get “eco-friendly” dresses with style (non granola) please let me know! Amazing upcycled Dress below by Rainer Wolter
Not this Eco Chic
This morning I have been surfing the net and came across to really cool sites that are about eco-friendly fashion.
One is The Uniform Project It is about 1 dress. 365 days. An experiment in Fashion Philanthropy. It is amazing and it’s for good cause. The creator, Sheena Matheiken, is raising money to help put kids through school.
You must check it out! I watched the video and looked through the many pictures and I am beside myself with all the cool looks she has created from donated materials. Makes me feel inspired to go through my accessories bin and go buy a pair of black legging and an oversized black shirt(used or sustainable of course) and make it my new uniform ; )
The Uniform Project
The other site I came across that I really like is about doing eco-friendly weddings it is called Eco-Beautiful Weddings. I love their site, beautiful. Looks like they are just getting started but I can’t wait to see what they do .
Love getting inspiration from others!
