Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Brighten your night



Ooh, jewel toned flowy mini dresses... sigh. But instead of something from Shopbop, why not try this beauty made by Brooklyn artist Seana Gordon?

Seana Gordon Silk Bow Dress $240.

p.s. Send me your eco conversion wish list (stuff you love, but wish were more eco friendly) and I'll start looking for green alternatives. CHARTREUSE dot GIRL at GMAIL dot COM!

Beautiful dress -- Seana Gordon's styles are gorgeous. But I struggle with how "eco-friendly" it is. The silk is considered green (if you're not a vegan), but she seems more of an indie designer than a green designer. That said, your eco conversions in general are amazing and I congratulate you for helping fashionistas find ways to incorporate green ideals into their wardrobes.

Good point on the "indie" more than green. I do have a soft spot for those indie designers! In my mind, they're a little like local farmers -- smaller, more efficient opperations with less wasted on transporting and storing goods from far off places.

learned to love fashion in NY and sustainability in Berkeley; now I'm busy in Boston trying to find easy ways to keep up the green without giving up the chic.
