eco friendly fashion
For a while, I had been avoiding wearing a lot of black because I quite simply got tired of it from school (I normally dress in all black because you never have to worry about anything not matching.) But slowly I've been integrating this color back into my wardrobe, which was made quite easy by the addition of this edgy maxi dress which also happens to be made of organic cotton!

This look is named after Alectrona, the Greek goddess of the Sun. Keep reading for full outfit and sustainability details ♥

Organic Cotton Maxi Dress c/o Indigenous Designs
Vintage Sun Belt from Poshmark

The Dress:
This maxi dress is from Indigenous Designs, an organic and fair trade fashion brand that focuses on making choices that benefit both people and the planet. This dress is made of organic cotton jersey, was dyed with low-impact dyes, and was also ethically made by fair trade artisans! 

I love the neckline of this dress—you can tie the straps in a traditional halter tie, or try a criss cross tie like I did here! I can't get enough of the witchy vibe from this dress—reminds me of my days when I used to be very into grunge fashion. It's crazy how many styles I've gone through over the years :P

Another thing that's awesome about Indigenous Designs? They carry men's clothes too! 

The Belt:
My sun belt is a vintage find from Poshmark. People are constantly asking me where it's from and sadly since it's vintage I don't have a way of helping them find the same one, but if anything, I hope it convinces more people of the beautiful (and one-of-a-kind) treasures you can find when shopping secondhand/vintage!

The Sandals:
I can always count on my Bhava sandals for a neutral but edgy accent to my outfits! These sandals are made from hand-painted cork and are the most comfortable heels I've owned. Bhava is a vegan shoe and accessories brand that utilizes recycled and natural materials, and all their pieces are ethically handmade in Spain. I love the way they look from the front and the side!



Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday, and thank you for stopping by!
xo, Jennifer

  7. Jennifer, I love this outfit! I'm tired of wearing black too since that was all we were allowed to wear in the esthetics program, but I adore this combination with that sun belt. -Alice from Wonderland Organics
