Spotted: Melissa Recyclable Cutout Jelly Skimmer

chartreuse-chic

Spotted in this week's NYTimes Style section: a fantastic geometric tent dress paired with these bright red recycleable flats.

I always think of Australian Brazilian Melissa Shoes as the company that accomplishes what Crocs should have -- plastic shoes that are comfy, cute and eco friendly (they're recyclable!). This year, I'm seeing more and more shops picking up the line, so here's to hoping they get as big a following as Crocs! Get yours right now (in flaming red, sunny yellow, or practical black) at Urban Outfitters.

Melissa Recyclable Cutout Jelly Skimmer $69. Interested in picking up other styles online? Lovely little eco-coutique Sodafine has a nice selection, while big shot Revolve Clothing offers limited size choices but free shipping and returns.

fix your link to Melissa Shoes. You added an extra "h" to the "http" and it won't work.

Yikes! Thanks Amber!

Chloe -- I just tried on a different pair of Melissa's at Luna Boston, and they were too big for me to get a feel for comfy-ness. But there are some thumbs up reviews for other styles of Melissa flats on the Revolve website. One nice thing the Luna sales girl did point out was that they've found a way to keep them from smelling like plastic -- by adding a bubble gum scent! I wouldn't have pegged it as gum, but they did smell pleasant.
