Ecofashion Summer Sales

FashionEthic is a new online ecofashion boutique and they’re having a summer sale at 20%-70% off with some consciously curated cuteness. They’re adding some great lines in the near future so be sure to check back for their fall collections.

The Lizzie Parker Trenchy Coat overcame me with it’s bamboo/organic cotton lovliness- I’ll admit I bought one for myself: Who can resist those huge, white buttons? I know it’s going to be damn comfy too.

Kaight, my fave local (NYC) ecofashion resource is offering 50% off their summer stuff- and keep in mind that we have at least two months of summer left (at least here in the Northeast, you southerners have even more). My absolute fave summer 2008 trend? The shorts romper! So easy to wear, so comfy, so kid-on-a-bike free feeling! I got the organic cotton Rogan one from the Barney’s sale I blogged about here. Kaight has a few different rompers, as well as cute dresses, tanks and more.

Eairth Ifugau Romper in organic cotton; on the site the shop’s owner, Kate, says she’s been wearing this one herself- a serious endorsement.

‘s also having a 20-50% off summer sale, and every single piece in the online store is perfectly precious (in a totally modern and fabulous way, not an “aren’t-you-precious?”-cheek-pinching sort of way, promise).

This sailor-inspired skirt (nautical is hot for Autumn this year!) by Del Forte will definitely work now with a (blue and white nautical?) tank and later with a striped long-sleeve and tights.
