Earth Day Fashion

Well fashionistas it is Earth Day, and in honor of that I am going to post about some environmentally friendly fashion designers.

I love these bags by Ashley Watson which are made from recycled leather coats. This Junco Bay retails for $320. You can find it at local Portland Boutique Olio . I love the blue. Ashley Watson has some really cute bags in great colors!

While you are looking at these lovely bags on the Olio United website check out some of there other offerings. There are some really cute dresses and accessories featured at the boutique, all are made from sustainable natural materials. If Olio sounds familiar to you that is probably because it was featured in Lucky last month. It is also 4 blocks from my office!

Another Eco Brand is Loomstate. Eco conscious clothing aren't just for hemp wearing hippy's anymore. Loomstate has very stylish clothing for men and women. Loomstate was founded as a casual brand dedicated to creating demand for certified organic cotton using socially and environmentally responsible methods of production. But is pricey. Loomstate clothing can be purchased locally at Mario's

Remember though if you don't thing you can afford the pricey Enviro Designers, you can always shop at thrift stores. Recycled Fashion can be just as good as New!
