Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Pre-Spring eco fashion window shopping

chartreuse chic

With all the nerves and worry about the economy these days, it's gotten a little harder to daydream about extravagant shopping. Plus, M and I were caught up in the recent surge in credit card fraud (though our bank is handling things very well) so we're a little wary about whipping out the plastic these days. But do you know what I do when I'm feeling broke but need a little fashion fix? I go window shopping! So I'm going to break my unspoken rule about only showing purchasable items, and show you the best spots to preview some of the fun green fashions lined up for Spring.

First up is Modify's Spring Pre-Sale, all of which can be browsed and pre-ordered now for shipment around March. I'm loving this delicate shirt dress from sweatshop-free company Myth & Ritual. It captures the sweetness of spring without falling into pastels or florals.

Next stop? Stewart + Brown's spring line (organic, as always!) Though some pieces are beginning to show up S+B's web store, the best place to take a gander at all the spring offerings is via Nina's Photography's Portland Fashion Week photos. Not only can we preview everything on the catwalk, but there are great suggestions about how to build outfits out of items. Personally, I love how the ruffles on this blue dress echo the ruffles on the paired crochet jacket. If you can't wait, the Stewart + Brown Flare Knit Cardi can be had for $197.

Last but certainly not least are the spring fashions from Beau Soleil. When playing one of those "bring only one dress to a dessert island" games, I'd definitely pick one of these bamboo dresses. This Beau Medallion dress would make me feel like such a goddess! It will be available for $275 the day after Valentine's Day. Something to look forward to!
