Wear This, Not That: A Perfect Summer-to-Fall Asymmetrical Dress

I’m such a fan of what Adriana Herrera is doing over at her unique spin on an eco boutique, Fashioning Change (check out my interview with this incredibly thoughtful ecopreneur here).

Not only does she and her team pull together some fun, fantastic, and of course, fashionable looks, but they compare and contrast pieces to very similar pieces you’ll see on store shelves (many from big-name brands who charge just as much for their clothes, but whereas when you’re buying an ethical piece, you know where the money goes — paying sewers, using eco friendly fabrics — it’s not so much with the big brands).

Fashioning Change is not only proving that eco fashion isn’t necessarily more costly than conventional, care-less brands, but that it’s (obviously) just as stylish. We’ll be featuring more from the “Wear This, Not That” project in the future.
