an #ecofashion update: Eco Road - The Price of Being Eco-friendly

an #ecofashion update: Eco Road - The Price of Being Eco-friendly

Fortunately, I’ve always been good at finding a sale. Today, for instance, I was able to acquire a seasonally transitional piece from Venice Beach eco-designer Kelly B for 40% off which brought it down to $80. A bit of a chunk out of my monthly clothing allowance, but an investment I was willing to make. Why? Because, like most of the eco-friendly items I’ve purchased since I started down this road, this piece is well made with solid construction and a beautiful cut that fits my body in a flattering manner. Moreover, since I know the garment was made of 50% organic cotton and 50% recycled polyester in Southern California by someone who was paid a living wage, I can wear it with a smile and a clear conscience. Now, of course, I did pass up the $50 tank top because my personal aesthetic just doesn’t accommodate a cotton tank at that price.
