Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Abercrombie Redo


I was just packing for Memorial Day weekend, and my uniform this summer is clearly loose tops over minis with flats. The pink top here is the perfect mix of preppy and relaxed, the recycled mini proves that sustainable doesn't always mean more expensive, and the clear jellies look a lot like another pair everyone's talking about. I threw the bag in there to punk things up, although I admit I'd probably never buy one so small (I know, my refusal to own impractical bags will eternally keep me from being actually fashionable... oh well.)

Taxi CDC Strapless Western $48, Taxi CDC Rebuilt Mini $48, Melissa Ultragirl Clear $60 (limited sizes available, but they restock), Heather English The Mini $78. A lot of this stuff is from BTC Elements, and I can now report that ordering there is incredibly easy and shipping was impressively fast.

Hi Beklina! You have a beautiful store, but a very small stock, which is why you weren't on my personal hit list of eco friendly boutiques. But I'm adding you to the blog's list of links because you have a couple of beautiful things that can't be found anywhere else online!
