Autumn Eco Style Preview 1

Autumn is my absolute favorite time for buying clothes (one word: layers!!). I’m practically craving the cool days, cold nights and swirling leaves as I pant my way through August. One way I deal with my chilly-weather craving is to pour over possible outfits and how new additions will fit in with my slowly growing and carefully curated selection of ecofashions. My closet is due for a very serious overhaul in about a month, and so as I traverse the sustainable style sites, I’ll be sharing my favorite finds with you, dear readers.

Doie has long been one of my fave lines, run by the super-positive Sara Kirsner (who recently moved to LA so she could be closer to where they make her gorg clothes). Below are some previews from her autumn/winter 2008 line.

The ever-beautiful Summer Rayne Oakes models for Doie’s A/W 2008 collection of bamboo and sustainable wool pieces.

Doie cardi
Simple, and very, very flattering cardi that would be a great staple; a little bit something more than just a plain black version, the grey stripe adds interest and graphic charm.

Doie Stripe shirt
A colorful blouse that innocently, but definitely requires that you not be ignored.

Doie lined hoodie
The lining on this hoodie means it can go from weekend-with-jeans wear to relaxed-day-at the office were it worn over a sweet dress. The barely revealed pattern would make for an easy entree into the trend of mixing patterns with patterns- I envision a pretty boho flower print with this star-pattern.

Doie Jacket 1
Sara picked vintage buttons for this limited-run coat.

Doie Jacket 2
What could be prettier than a coat that’s lined with a fun pattern? (same coat as shown above)
