DESERT MERMAID (+$75 GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY!)

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

I can't help feeling like a mermaid out of water in this beautiful fishnet dress by Pima Doll which we shot in the cactus garden! This dress is truly a work of art and the best part is how sustainable and ethically-made this piece is!

Read on for full outfit details and also a $75 gift card giveaway to Pima Doll!


Hand-Knot Pima Cotton Dress c/o Pima Doll
Secondhand Faux Leather Bag from Poshmark

+ Use my referral code PMXGQ to get $10 Poshmark credits!

The Dress:
Pima Doll is a brand that fulfills so many sustainability points for me and I am really happy to introduce you guys to them! :) It is not only ethically-made by female artisans in Peru who preserve traditional knitting techniques, but it is made with Peruvian pima cotton, one of the world's most luxurious and sustainable cottons. Pima cotton is grown without chemicals or fertilizers, and is hand-harvested resulting in no adverse environmental impact.

What's especially remarkable about pima cotton is how durable it is, lasting 50% longer than ordinary cotton and it does not pill either! Pima Doll as a brand, also implements a zero waste technique (meaning that no fabric is wasted) which I cannot praise enough! When they cut a garment from a flat panel (like one of their t-shirts) they upcycle the fabric scraps and shred them to be used for one-of-a-kind hand knitted pieces like the very dress I am wearing!


Pima Doll has kindly offered to giveaway a $75 gift card too! The giveaway is being held on Instagram and you can enter on this post:

1. Follow @sustainablesiren and @pima_doll
2. Like the IG post
3. Leave a comment, tagging 2 friends who would love Pima Doll

This giveaway is open internationally and will run through March 25, 2016. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Instagram on March 26th. Good luck everyone :)

The Arm Cuffs:
I got these arm cuffs on Etsy and they were beautifully handmade in Colorado. They are meant to be bracelets but since they are adjustable, I can also wear them as arm cuffs!

The Bag:
You guys have seen this bag a few times now! It's my favorite bag of the moment. A secondhand purchase from Poshmark and it goes with everything!

The Heels:
Another piece I can't stop wearing as of late—my vegan cut-out booties from Bhava! Ethically made in Spain by skilled artisans with natural and recycled materials, these are shoes that you'll be proud to wear. You can read my very in-depth review on these Bhava booties in my previous post here!
