Chartreuse Chic
for eco friendly fashionistas

Heat up your Valentine's Day

chartreuse-chic

A little more love for the red? I can only dream of having somewhere to wear this beautiful dress next week (hint, hint, M!) That slinky red silk is fair trade from Bali, and the sequins are actually recycled leather! Plus running into this dress at Envi was a nice introduction to fair trade company Alchem1st, a wonderful brand I hope will be picked up by some more US shops soon. Until then, you can brave the weak dollar and the expensive shipping and check out Alchem1st at Adili, a UK boutique that's having a big sale and delivers to the US for (wince) about $39.

Alchem1st Dante Dress $278. Also available in a slightly less spicy "moss" color from Adili, on sale for $98.
GOOD B/C: Fair trade, Recycled.
